Sermon Details

Songs of my Heart

11 July 2010
The Sermon Series:
The Hebrew language has seven words that we translate into the English word “praise”:

1) BARAK (baw-rak)?To kneel or to bow; to give reverence to God as an act of adoration. This implies continual, conscious giving of honor to God; blessing the Lord; extolling his virtue. There is a sense of kneeling and blessing God as an act of adoration in the word BARAK… that He is my KING and I yield to HIM. Everything aligns inside (emotions heart, mind, body language, actions of will).

2) TEHILLAH (teh-hil-law)?to sing, to laud; a spontaneous new song; singing from a melody in your heart by adding words to it. This refers to a special kind of singing?it is singing unprepared, unrehearsed songs.

3) HALAL (haw-lal) (this word appears more than 110 times in the OT)?to be clear, to celebrate.

4) TOWDAH (to-daw)?to give worship by the extension of the hand in adoration, commonly found in connection with sacrifice and the answering of prayer. The lifting of the hand symbolizes agreement. The right hand symbolizes my covenant with my Father. God is seen extending His right hand to me, thereby saying, “All that I am is yours”; when I extend my right hand to Him, I am saying “All that I am is yours and I agree with what You’re saying.” It is the sacrifice that God honors by His performing of miracles.

5) ZAMAR (zaw-mar)?to sing with instruments.

6) SHABACH (shaw-bakh)?to address in a loud voice; a loud adoration; a shout! This is not just being loud; it is having an attitude of putting your whole being into it, an attitude of being totally uninhibited.

7) YADAH (yaw-daw)?to worship with the extended hand; the giving of oneself in worship and adoration. To lift your hands unto the Lord. This carries the meaning of absolute surrender, as a young child does to a parent: “Pick me up, I’m all yours.”
