Top 10 Bible Verses About Praise

Jun 11, 2014

Praise is a unique action.  It sometimes feels completely natural and at other times it is very difficult to do.  Yet, we literally can praise God in every circumstance we go through because we know that He is in control!  We can praise God in the greatest times and we can praise Him in the tragic times.  Praise is not defined by what happens to us, but it is defined by who dwells in us!  Here are 10 of the top Bible verses about praise!  Feel free to let us know what some of yours are in the comments below!

10. Life-long Praise

Psalm 146:1-2 – “Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord, O my soul!  I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.”

9. Praise Through Music

Psalm 150:3-5 – “Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with lute and harp!  Praise Him with tambourine and dance; praise Him with strings and pipe!  Praise Him with sounding cymbals; praise Him with loud clashing cymbals!”

8. Through The Storm

Psalm 131-6 – “How long, O Lord?  Will You forget me forever?  How long will You hide Your face from me?  How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day?  How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?  Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, lest my enemy say, ‘I have prevailed over him,’ lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.  But I have trusted in Your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.  I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.”

7. God Notices Our Praises

Psalm 35:27-28 – “Let those who delight in My righteousness shout for joy and be glad and say evermore, ‘Great is the Lord, who delights in the welfare of His servant!’  Then My tongue shall tell of your righteousness and of your praise all the day long.”

6. Praise Is Commanded

Psalm 66:1-3 – “Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of His Name; give to Him glorious praise!  Say to God, ‘How awesome are Your deeds!  So great is Your power that Your enemies come cringing to You.”

5. God Is Worthy

2 Samuel 22:4 – “I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.”

4. God Is Great

1 Chronicles 16:25 – “For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and He is to be held in awe above all gods.”

3. Praise Shows Your Heart

Proverbs 27:19-21 – “As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man.  Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and never satisfied are the eyes of man.  The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and a man is tested by his praise.”

2. Scripture Brings Praise From Us: A Section Worth Memorizing To Praise God

Ephesians 1:3-14 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as He chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him.  In love He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved.  In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth.  In Him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, so that we who were first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of His glory.  In Him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory.”


1. Praise Is Natural When Deliverance Is Made/The Lame Beggar

Acts 3:6-8 – “But Peter said, ‘I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you.  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!’  And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong.  And leaping up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.”
