What is praise and Worship?
Other people have crammed ever since that Praising is singing at high tempo and dancing but worshiping is all about singing in low tempo, humbly and crying!
Who initiated and ordered THE PRAISE AND WORSHIP?
If you had never known; then that is our survival purpose and the most admirable mass by God!
WHAT DOES THE SCRIPTURES SAY ABOUT PRAISE AND WORSHIP?
There are several ways the Bible has talked about praise and worship, it has well explained what is it? why and how to go about it?
But in Psalm the Bible has given real songs.......
Psalm 18:1-3 (KJV)
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who spoke unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,> I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
Psalm 24:1-10 (KJV)
A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
Psalm 47:1-9 (KJV)
To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah. God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness. The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
Psalm 89:1-18 (KJV)
Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I
Psalm 89:1-18 (KJV) cont’d
establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah. And the heavens
shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the
saints. For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? Who among the sons
of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? God is greatly to be feared in the
assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. O
LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round
about thee? Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou
stillest them. Thou hast broken Rehab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered
thine enemies with thy strong arm. The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for
the world and the fullness thereof, thou hast founded them. The north and the south
thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name. Thou hast a
mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand. Justice and judgment are the
habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face. Blessed is the people
that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. In
thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted. For
the LORD is our defense; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
Psalm 92:1-9 (KJV)
A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD,
and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy loving kindness in the
morning, and thy faithfulness every night, Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon
the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound. For thou, LORD, hast made me glad
through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. O LORD, how great are thy
works! and thy thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool
understand this. When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of
iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever: But thou, LORD, art most
high for evermore. For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish;
all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
Psalm 93:1-5 (KJV)
The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength,
wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O
LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The LORD on
high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
Psalm 95:1-9 (KJV)
O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our
salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise
unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In
his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is
his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow
down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the
people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the
wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
Psalm 96:1-13 (KJV)
O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. Sing unto the
LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory
among the heathen, his wonders among all people. For the LORD is great, and greatly
to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols:
but the LORD made the heavens. Honour and majesty are before him: strength and
beauty are in his sanctuary. Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto
the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring
an offering, and come into his courts. O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness:
fear before him, all the earth. Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world
also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people
righteously. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the
fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of
the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he
shall judge the world with righteousness and the people with his truth.
Psalm 113:1-6 (NKJV)
Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, Praise the name of the LORD!
Blessed be the name of the LORD From this time forth and forevermore! From the rising
of the sun to its going down The LORD's name is to be praised. The LORD is high
above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, Who
dwells on high, Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and
in the earth?
Psalm 99:1-6 (NKJV)
The LORD reigns; Let the peoples tremble! He dwells between the cherubim; Let the
earth be moved! The LORD is great in Zion, And He is high above all the peoples. Let
them praise Your great and awesome name -- He is holy. The King's strength also loves
justice; You have established equity; You have executed justice and righteousness in
Jacob. Exalt the LORD our God, And worship at His footstool -- He is holy. Moses and
Psalm 99:1-6 (NKJV) cont’d
Aaron were among His priests, And Samuel was among those who called upon His name; They called upon the LORD, and He answered them.
Psalm 104:1-9 (NKJV)
Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty, Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment, Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain. He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters, Who makes the clouds His chariot, Who walks on the wings of the wind, Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire. You who laid the foundations of the earth, So that it should not be moved forever, You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. They went up over the mountains; They went down into the valleys, To the place which You founded for them. You have set a boundary that they may not pass over, That they may not return to cover the earth.
Psalm 145:1-13 (NKJV)
I will extol You, my God, O King; And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts. I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works. Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, And I will declare Your greatness. They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, And shall sing of Your righteousness. The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works. All Your works shall praise You, O LORD, And Your saints shall bless You. They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, And talk of Your power, To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, And the glorious majesty of His kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
I Timothy 1:17 (NKJV)
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 4:8 (NKJV)
The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!"
Revelation 4:11 (NKJV)
