Originally the word ‘hallelujah’ was a combination of parts of two Hebrew words, meaning ‘praise’ and ‘Jehovah’ (‘Yahweh’). It has been transliterated into Greek and English as ‘hallelujah’ and means ‘praise the Lord’. It was used mainly to open or close hymns of praise in public worship (Psalms 106:1; Psalms 106:48; Psalms 112:1; Psalms 113:1; Psalms 115:18; Psalms 146:1; Psalms 146:10; Psalms 147:1; Psalms 147:20; Psalms 150; Revelation 19:1; Revelation 19:3-4; Revelation 19:6; see also ).
