God of my praise

When King David called God the God of my praise, it was the beginning of a desperate cry for help. David was plagued by slanderous enemies and wanted God to spare him from them. Even when David was at a low point in life he still referred to God using this positive and joyful name.

The Hebrew word tehillati comes from halal, the word for praise, that indicates deep thankfulness. In Hebrew the Book of Psalms is called Tehillim; it is full of praises.

Do not be silent!
