In the Bible, Hallelujah is an exclamation of worship or a call to praise translated from two Hebrew words:

Hillel=to praise

Jah=shortened for Jahweh

Praise Yahweh!

Hallelujah appears 24 times in the Old Testament in Psalms 104-150 (known as the “Hallelujah Psalms.”)

Hallelujah appears in only one book in the New Testament: Revelation

“After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God.” (Revelation 19:1 NIV)

As we celebrate Easter today, we have reason to shout Hallelujah.

Hallelujah to the Risen Christ and our coming King!
