A Vocation of Praise.

A Vocation of Praise.

Praise. Praise, mostly of God, is a frequent theme in the psalms, the Hebrew title of which is “Praises.” Yet praise is a theme that pervades the whole of Scripture. Genesis 1 is indirect praise; direct praise is found in hymns scattered throughout the books of Exodus, 2 Samuel, Isaiah, Daniel, Ephesians, and Revelation. Words that are often used as synonyms or in parallel with “praise,” and so help point to its meaning, are “bless,” “exalt,” “extol,” “glorify,” “magnify,” “thank,” and “confess.” To praise God is to call attention to his glory.
