Rejoice! …, again, I say Rejoice!

Rav Shaul ( the Pharisee who humbled himself and chose to entrust his life to The Master, Adonai Yeshua; many call this man “Paul” ) knew his days were numbered. He had sewn enough “tents” to earn sufficient income to enable him to travel to share a Ruach-haKodesh- inspired ( Set-apart Spirit = Ruach haKodesh ) with the followers of The Way of Yeshua who were dwelling in or near Philippi, in modern-day Greece.

In the B’rit Chadashah ( b’rit = covenant; chadashah = renewed ), in the epistle ( letter ) Shaul wrote to Yeshua’s followers in Philippi, … in what most of us know as chapter 4, verse 4, we read ( in English ):

“Rejoice in Adonai ( Adonai = Lord; it can refer to Yeshua, and to YHVH ) always: (and) again I say, Rejoice. (!)”

Psalm 22: 3 ( by David ) states:

“But You (are) set-apart ( holy ), ( O You ) Who inhabit the praises of Yisrael ( Israel ).”

Psalm 113: 1 – 9 also inspires us to praise ( “bless” is used, in English, for “praise,” sometimes ) haShem ( The Name ) of YHVH ( Yud-Hey-Vav-Hey; Yahweh = The Name The Creator told Moshe, Moses, to tell the children of Yisrael, Israel ).

In Psalm 113: 1 – 3, this song / prayer states:

“Praise ( literally, “HalleluYah!” ) YHVH. Praise, O you servants of YHVH, praise The Name of YHVH.

Blessed be The Name of YHVH from this time forth and forevermore.

From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, YHVH’s Name ( is ) to be praised.”
