Tehillah – Praise

Screen shot 2009-09-02 at 9.40.42 AMPsalm 22:3 But You [are] holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel.

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise [shall] continually [be] in my mouth.

This word for praise is Tahillah which means to sing praise. This is the praise that dwells on. This is the praise that David said that he wanted to be in his mouth continually.

It’s root word means to shine and the letters of the root word means “Look at the Shepherd” or Look at the One who is in control!” (Hey, Lamed, Lamed)

These are songs that put all attention upon God, to boast of who He is. In Psalm 40:3, David said that “He put a new song in my mouth, praise (tahillah) unto God…”

Psalm 66:2 says to Sing out the honor of His name; Make His praise (tahillah) glorious.

  1. tahillah is another word that I have found different meanings for… such as:
    God breathing into, Spirit of God indwelling, inhabiting, even references to singing in the spirit.

  2. http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H8416&t=KJV I do believe in singing in the Spirit but I have not found a reference for it in the Old Testament as you suggest, in particular, in this word.

  3. I have known words like shabbach, Hallal, Hilwul, (Spelling?) but never known about tahillah. I quite appreciate the insight!
