Ruwa – Shout

Screen shot 2009-09-02 at 10.22.41 AMPsalm 95:1,2 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

We first see this word in Joshua 6 when the instruction is given to Joshua and then from Joshua to the people to “Shout, for the Lord has given you the city!”

Ruwa means to shout a war-cry or an alarm or to shout in triumph.

In the book of Numbers king Balak hired Balaam to curse Israel and each time only blessing would come from his mouth. During his second attempt at cursing he made the following declaration in Numbers 23:21:

The Lord his God is with him, and the shout (ruwa) of a King is among them.

Psalm 47:1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout (ruwa) to God with the voice of triumph!
