Before we are looking at other words other Hebrew words for praise I wanted to note that psalms 22:69 have to do with the suffering of Jesus the Messiah, especially those suffering is related to the crucifixion. In fact, passages from both the psalms are quoted and applied to the Lord Jesus in the Gospel's, most extensively so in the accounts of his death.
This is in reference to the praise piece that I wrote to explain TEHILLAH as praise and praise language; what it is that the Lord is commanding that we do. So right now I want to put a pause in it and say let's see what Jesus did.
How about we look at these two Palms and how much the Messiah himself understood the glorious nature of praising God. Start at Psalm 22 and Psalm 69; Jesus even held on to a determined anticipation of meeting of the multitudes in praise of God, while he was enduring sorrows him self. So the lesson here is you don't have to be happy to praise God you don't have to be free of stress to praise God, you don't have to have your life perfect before you can praise God. In fact the most powerful praise is praising him in your sorrow, Praising him because you know he will deliver you even while you're still amidst your pain that's that's the power of the real crazies. That is the power of faith. As believers we have to understand how important crazy is and in the midst of it how important it is for us to praise God, praise his holy name!!
In Psalm 22:3 the suffering redeemer acknowledges God's holiness, and he properly dwells (literally, "is seated") on the praises of Israel. Inverses 22 and 25 he pledges to lead out in praise in the midst of Gods vast congregation. In verse 27 he believes the results of his suffering will include the turning of all the world to Jehovah. As a result "… All the kindreds of the nation shall worship before thee"
additionally, in verse 26, he is in visioning praise and happiness among God's people.
The man of sorrows, The ONE acquainted with grief, had the glorifying and praising of our praiseworthy God so close to his heart. Certainly we who have so marvelously benefited from HIS great redemtion should never, never (for any reason), refrain from giving him praise all our lives. Everyone living and breathing is to praise our glorious God!
Similarly, and Psalm 69 the one on whom the reproaches fell, the one to whom they gave gall and vinegar in response to his thirst, still declares, "I will praise the name of God with the song, and will magnify him with Thanksgiving" that was verse 30.
And what was his final concern in this psalm of anguish? His goal was that heaven and earth, and even every creature in the sea, would come to praise God, and that his own people would be redeemed and inherit God's blessing in their land versus 34 through 36 what an amazing savior
In addition to TEHILLAH, there are other Hebrew words for praise like TOWDAH, and YADAH; they respectively are defined for such concepts as thanks, Thanksgiving. The king James translators chose praise, for these words, which normally have to do with lifting one's hands and thankfulness. One such case in psalms 50:23, where T0WDAH is translated praise. This family of words is used as extensively as BALLAL/TEHILLAH/TEHILLIM group.
There are numerous references in scripture to magnify God. To magnify him is to make him larger, grander and more magnificent than he was before in our understanding, our speech and our lives. We can read this even further the New Testament; see how the Savior chose to regard his own humiliations; he despised the shame. We can magnify own embarrassments and despise the Lord who judges fairly and maintains our cause, or we can belittle our own humiliations and make God's honor and concerns and his majestic reputation magnified even that much more.
So today let's do it, lift him up, praise him, praise him beyond our understanding our speech our lives beyond what we think is praiseworthy. Because he himself is the definition of praiseworthy! Thank you Lord, praise the Lord, praise his holy name hallelujah
It is thrilling that tithes and Offering time, love, mentorships, and sowing seeds has become a happy and joyous occasion. I believe we should celebrate thatc we are starting to understand the value of sowing good seeds, amongst ourselves, others and the church. Celebrating in your heart, be happy, be filled w joy; however be careful not to accidentally boast for the Lord says then your reward will have been collected on those that you boasted to. Meaning, if you are looking for one person to pat you on the back then go ahead, on the other hand join me, stay quiet about your details. Celebrate His Love as Your Father advises. Keep his precepts follow his guidance and start to truly Live!!!
Thank you Lord!! Thank you for all things, good, bad, and wonderfully lovely. Praise His Holy Name!!
"The Seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people."
In this chapter 2 of The Gospel John, the miracle of Jesus turning water into wine is revealed. I believe the real miracle, the real message is more complex. First in these weddings traditionally the best wine is served first, knowing as people become drunk they can tolerate lower quality wine. (Hear wine is representing the best pleasures in life, God rewards, the fact that His rewards get better and better, the best for last. Not starting out w the best and deminishing over time, more than as we become more refined in Him our rewards are amplified. Finally, our best reward Eternal Life With Him!) Then as we look away from him (become drunk in the worlds pleasures rewards, quality of life and our promises are diminished.). Look carefully, at what His Mother says to the servants, without question, without hesitation... And in TOTAL FAITH that Jesus will provide. This is all He is asking, have total faith, believe Him, His WORD and obey Him His commands, keep His precepts... And He will give everyone us everything!!! Thank You Lord!!
So what happens, she not only says Do Exactly what He asks of you, she expects they too have faith without questions or explainations! She didn't even ask Jesus to explain His answer to her, nor say yeah but you need to do something. She had faith He had it under control, His promises are in fact real and for her to not have any concerns, just trust in HIM. So NO ONE SAYS, DO WHAT! WHY?
This is His glory... It isn't just wine for heavens sake. What is revealed here is emense! So where is He asking you that be faithful, public faithfulness; remember they were to poor the water in the Masters wine glass... If it was still water, the water that everyone washed with how embarrassing would that be. They didn't poor it in a separate glass that test it before hand. WOW right. Are you asking What, How Come, Why? Or are you acting as n Total Faith?

What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.” John 2:5, 11 NIV
