Is The Word ‘Hallelujah’ Found In The Bible?

No, you will not found hallelujah in the Holy Bible, however you will find two part word phrase: Hallelu and Jah, used together to make this one English expression found from the 4th century. Also spelled alleluia from the Latin Vulgate.

Hallelujah is known from every language, when describing Lord God Almighty.  

Hallelu origins from a Hebrew verb form  called Hallal. When you looked this word up in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance #1984, it will describe hallal as the following:

Make boast self, celebrate, commend,deal, make, foolishly glory, give light, or be make

Jah origins from Hebrew as well. It was the sacred name (proper name) meaning the Lord, most vehement. When you looked this word up in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, there you see the notation from its origin called YHVH (yeh-ho-vaw) #3068. Translation into English is Jehovah, the Lord, proper name of the God of Israel; who is from Hayah #1961, the self-existent or eternal one. There usage is the same in Greek #239 as well.

Combining the two words together would be “PRAISE JAH (praise God).”

It appears in the Old Testament book of Psalms,and the New Testament book of Revelation Chapter 19. Each expression’s meaning “PRAISE YE YAH (praise the Lord).” Let’s read these praises  to stir up our spirit on the inside of us:

Let sinners be consumed from the earth,
And let the wicked be no more.
Bless the LORD, O my soul.
Praise the LORD! [Hallelujah!] Psalm 104:35

Praise the LORD! [Hallelujah!]
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Psalm 106:1

Praise the LORD! [Hallelujah!]
How blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
Who greatly delights in His commandments. Psalm 112:1

Praise ye the Lord. [Hallelujah]
Praise, O ye servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord. Psalm 113:1

O praise the Lord, [O Hallelujah]
all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. Psalm 117:1

Praise ye the Lord. [Hallelujah]
Praise ye the name of the Lord;
praise him, O ye servants of the Lord. Psalm 135:1

And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia [Praise the Lord]; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: Revelation 19:1 

 And again they said, Alleluia [Praise the Lord] And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. Revelation 19:3

 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia [Praise the Lord]. Revelation 19:4

 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia [Praise the Lord]: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Revelation 19:6

These exclamation of adoring worship is seen with your eyes, and I hope that you will [or start to] appreciate God’s love, faithfulness, and mercy toward His creation – you and I. The Lord God Almighty seek such to worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Expressing your joy of praise by saying Hallelujah is giving God your daily sacrifice (Hebrews 13:15).  God sent us Jesus Christ to sustain us with every breathe. Each day, I would like to thank the Lord, because the die cannot praise the Lord, according to Isaiah 38:8. I’m here to do so, according to Psalm 104:33, “I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.”

Will you continue [or start] to express this truth of acceptable worship by saying Hallelujah each day with me? (Need help? see Victory in Praise Exercise)

Lord God, please let us live for your glory with every breath of thanksgiving with joy. You told us that this is our strength in every circumstances, peace in the midst of a storm, and hope for a brand new day. Glory Hallelujah! In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Shine in Worship towards Jah every Morning 🙂
