“I will exalt you, my God and King,and praise Your Name forever and ever. I will praise You every day;yes, I will praise You forever. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!”-{Psalm 145:1-3 NLT}

One Hebrew word for “praise” is yadah, meaning “praise, give thanks, or confess.” A second word often translated “praise” in the Old Testament is zamar, “sing praise.” A third word translated “praise” is halal (the root of hallelujah), meaning “to praise, honor, or commend.” All three terms contain the idea of giving thanks and honor to one who is worthy of praise.” -{gotquestions.com)
