What does PRAISE mean?


Psalm 150:6

King James Version

6 Let every thing that hath breath 

praise the Lord. 

Praise ye the Lord.

What does praising GOD mean?

How do we praise the LORD?

As always, I turn to Scripture:

Psalm 9:1-2

King James Version

9 I will praise thee, 

O Lord, 

with my whole heart; 

I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: 

I will sing praise to thy name, 

O thou most High.

Psalm 24:8-10

King James Version

8 Who is this King of glory? 

The Lord strong and mighty, 

the Lord mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, 

O ye gates; 

even lift them up, 

ye everlasting doors; 

and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? 

The Lord of hosts, 

he is the King of glory. 


Psalm 95:1-3

King James Version

95 O come, 

let us sing unto the Lord: 

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, 

and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

3 For the Lord is a great God, 

and a great King above all gods.

Psalm 103:1-4

King James Version

103 Bless the Lord, 

O my soul: 

and all that is within me, 

bless his holy name.

2 Bless the Lord, 

O my soul, 

and forget not all his benefits:

3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; 

who healeth all thy diseases;

4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; 

who crowneth thee with lovingkindness 

and tender mercies;

Psalm 150:1-5

King James Version

150 Praise ye the Lord. 

Praise God in his sanctuary: 

praise him in the firmament of his power.

2 Praise him for his mighty acts:

 praise him according to his excellent greatness.

3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: 

praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: 

praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: 

praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Isaiah 25:1

King James Version

25 O Lord, 

thou art my God; 

I will exalt thee, 

I will praise thy name; 

for thou hast done wonderful things; 

thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

John 17:1-4

King James Version

17 These words spake Jesus, 

and lifted up his eyes to heaven, 

and said, 


the hour is come; 

glorify thy Son, 

that thy Son also may glorify thee:

2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, 

that he should give eternal life 

to as many as thou hast given him.

3 And this is life eternal, 

that they might know thee the only true God, 

and Jesus Christ, 

whom thou hast sent.

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: 

I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

Colossians 3:16

King James Version

16 Let the word of Christ 

dwell in you richly in all wisdom; 

teaching and admonishing one another 

in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 

singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Hebrews 13:15

King James Version

15 By him therefore let us offer 

the sacrifice of praise to God continually, 

that is, 

the fruit of our lips 

giving thanks to his name.

James 5:13

King James Version

13 Is any among you afflicted? 

let him pray. 

Is any merry? 

let him sing psalms.

Now, you know why this fallen world could use a PRAISE village.

To praise GOD means, we thank GOD.

For His love, and all the blessings He has bestowed upon us.

Even when things seem to go wrong.

Everything is for GOD's purpose.
