Hebrew Words for Praise part 1

Have you ever considered the various forms of praise in the Bible? The Hebrew language uses seven different words with seven different meanings for praise. For the next few weeks, let's explore Biblical forms of praise as we learn to better worship Christ.
Towdah is to offer a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, initiated by the believer, that honors God. This is a believer coming to God with a thankful heart for all the blessings that he gives us and offering our praise to Him. The psalmist declared, "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving [towdah] and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name." Ps. 100:4 KJV. As we stand before Christ during worship, thank Him for the blessings you have been given this week!
