After the Jews returned to Jerusalem and rebuilt the Temple, choirs offered praises of thanksgiving. Todah is found 32 times in the Scriptures.
Praise, New Song – Hebrew: Tehillah
The most familiar tehillah is the 144,000 who stand on Mount Tziyon and ‘sing a new song’ or tehillah (Revelation 14:3).
Praise, Loud – Hebrew: Shabach
The most familiar shabach is at the battle of Jericho. A loud shout or shabach brought the walls of the city down so the Israelites could enter the Promised Land.
Praise, Kneel – Hebrew: Barak
The first time barak is found in Scripture is when Adonai blessed the birds of the air and the fish of the sea to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:22).
