Study: Epaineo, To Praise God

Epaineo is the Greek translation for the English word Praise

Can you take some clues and hints from the Holy Scriptures? The Word of God has a lot Chapters through its book sharing our ability to give epaineo (praise) to God. Below I have given the definition, origin, and meaning usage for you to study. The word Praise is found throughout the bible. Worship is shouted loudly with the word praise used, and here are a few for us to read now:

Exodus 15:2 The LORD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

Deuteronomy 10:21 He is your praise. He is your God, who has done for you these great and terrifying things that your eyes have seen.

2 Samuel 22:50 For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing praises to your name.

1 Chronicles 16:25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and he is to be held in awe above all gods.

1 Chronicles 29:13 And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.

Psalm 9:1 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Psalm 42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.

Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Philippians 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Hebrews 2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

Wow! This is only a tip of the full meal paid for. In your study time, go through your bible and highlight all of the praise scriptures to paid for the complete meal. Just having the tip money is fine for the waiter or waitress, but it will get you in problem for not paying for the entire meal. Understanding is key to spiritual wisdom. If you just have part of the word of God, you just have missed paying for it through your study times. If you want to get anything when you go out for a meal, please have enough money for the entire meal. Well that’s wisdom, right?

The Lord is good and worthy of our praise. Do you think you can join with me in praising God for a little time right now:

Glory to God in the Highest
Hosanna to the King of Kings
You are my God and I will forever praise you
Worthy is the Lamb of God, I thank you and lift up your name forever
There’s no one like my God, and I will forever praise you
My great and mighty shield and defend, I will forever praise you
As long as there is breath in me, I will forever praise you.
Glory Most High, Awesome and Marvelous Lord!

Lift up your hands and praise Him – Yadah!
Throw out your hands and praise Him – Todah!
Shout-out with a (Halal) Hallelujah!

To praise God is the number one thing that every follower in Christ should understand and know deep down on the inside our spiritual being. Greek Strong’s Concordance tells us that Epaineo means to praise from epi and aineo. Psalm 150 express to us the manner that is fitting, and in Psalm 33, it is something right to do. Praise is fitting for what is the highest good – God Himself. We should give praise to the Creator and the Lamb of God. Praise is a duty and a delight, according to Psalm 63:3-8:

Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. 4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. 5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: 6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. 7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

Study Epaineo, Study Praise! Learning about praise and worship is always a good thing for every righteous people who walk in the spirit, who loves God, and who always want to do what pleases God the most. Studying give you understanding, but never wisdom. You must pray and ask for her (wisdom) help. If you study, she will met you with the holy righteousness from the Holy Spirit, who will direct you to the truth of any matter. You will see that it is our purpose – to pray by asking the Holy Spirit of the Living God for help, and to praise the Lord for the rest of our days.
