Praise & Worship


Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (Psalm 100:3–4).


The purpose of our worship is to glorify, honor, praise, exalt, and please God. Our worship must show our adoration and loyalty to God for His grace in providing us with the way to escape the bondage of sin, so we can have the salvation He so much wants to give us. The nature of the worship God demands is the prostration of our souls before Him in humble and contrite submission. James 4:6, 10 tells us, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up". Our worship to God is a very humble and reverent action.

7 Aspects of Praise

YADAH to throw out hands; to worship with extended hands, Ps. 7:1, 9:1, 28:7, 33:2, 42:5, 44:8, 63:4, 100:4, 134:2, 141:2. The opposite is to wail, vrida ones hands complaining. Our hands are an extension of our inward nature. Aggressiveness inside – hands hit people. It is an expression of a deep surrender to God and it is an extension of our hearts desiring to exalt Him.
    1) confession, praise, thanksgiving
      a) give praise to God
      b) thanksgiving in songs of liturgical worship, hymn of praise
      c) thanksgiving choir or procession or line or company
      d) thank-offering, sacrifice of thanksgiving
      e) confession

HALAL (root word for hallelu-jah) to shine, boast over God, celebrate foolishly. = Praise to Yahweh, speaking the glorious attributes, workings, mercy, goodness, power, love, etc. to God, Ps. 104 – 106 are perfect examples of this. Translated praise, praised, praises – 2 Chron 20:19, 21, Ps. 22:22-23, 26, 111:1-3. An abandonment of self and a boasting in the Lord and being in love with the Lord.

TEHILLAH to sing halal, a hymn, song of spontaneous praise, glorying in God in song. This is the kind of praise God inhabits. There are more than 300 times we are exhorted to sing with some different Hebrew words for "sing", so psalms, hymns etc could be praise and yet not be tehillah. It is songs of the spirit – unprepared – that flow forth spontaneously from our spirits. It implies to total involvement of oneself in praise to God. Ps. 100:4, 22:3, 9:14, 33:1, 34:1, 65:1, 147:1-2, 149:1-2, Isa 61:3.
SHABACH &to address in a loud voice, tone, shout. To command, triumph or glory; to shout proclaiming with a loud voice. Ps. 63:3, 117:1, 145:4, 147:12. The phrase "shout unto the Lord" can be understood as the action of Shabach – Ps. 32:11, 35:27, 47:1, 65:13, 132:9;
BARAK &to kneel or bow down and to bless God or to give reverence to God as an act of adoration. It implies a continual, conscious acknowledgment of God – an attitude of expectancy, in a worshipful attitude expecting to receive, but is not a begging attitude, but yielded. Praise, salute, thanks. Often translated to bless or blessed – Judges 5:2, Ps. 16:7, 34:1, 63:4, 66:8, 100:4, 96:2, 103:1-2, 20-22, 134:1-3.;
ZAMAR &to touch the strings; to sing and play with instruments. Translated many times as "sing praises" and implies the singing of praise, in set composition of words and music. This kind of praise is mostly rejoicing. 1 Chron 15:16.;
