Hebrew Words for Praise pt 2

"I will praise [yadah] Thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all Thy marvelous works." Psalms 9:1

Yadah means to praise by raising and extending the hands unashamedly to God. The literal root of the word is to throw or cast. The antonym is to bemoan by wringing of the hands.

Where are your hands during worship? Are they thrown in the air as you cast your cares upon the One who cares for you? Or are they wringing in your lap as you focus on your struggles and trials? Lift your hands in praise today and give your cares to God.
