The term – Hallelujah


We hear the word Hallelujah allot, but I bet there’s is a big number of people who does not truly know what it means… So let’s go through it.

In Hebrews Hallelujah basically mean “praise Yah” .  The word can be split into two words:

Hallel – in the Hebrew Bible means a joyous praise in song to God.

Yah – which is shortened for Yahweh/Jehovah/Adonai etc, which is the name of the Creator, known as Jesus/God.

 

Interesting things to know:

The word is used 24 times in the Hebrew Bible.

Hallelujah is a transliteration of a Hebrew term that means “praise the Lord”

 

Go check out the below Bible verse to see how many times it’s used in one chapter !

 

Revelation 19:1-8

I just thought it would be nice to do some research on the term and share it, so that when you praise and worship, or even just talk to God, you can use that term with the utmost respect and honor…

It really takes your presence with God to a new level..

 

Be Blessed family of Christ.  Have a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year.  Remember it’s not about the gifts…. 🙂
