I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
~Psalm 34:1 (NIV)
I will praise you with the harp
for your faithfulness, O my God;
I will sing praise to you with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
My lips will shout for joy
when I sing praise to you-
I, whom you have redeemed.
~Psalm 71:22-23 (NIV)
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
~Psalm 100:1-5 (NIV)
Praise the Lord, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
~Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
~Ephesians 1:3 (NIV)
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess his name.
~Hebrews 13:15 (NIV)
Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
~1 Peter 1:7 (NIV)
Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
~2 Samuel 22:4 (NIV)
He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me,
and he prepares the way
so that I may show him the salvation of God.”
~Psalm 50:23 (NIV)
