Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 12 – verses 1-6***👍

Song of Praise

The Hebrew word for “praise” (warm approval and admiration) originates from “yadah”Related image pronounced – yaw-daw. It denotes using the hands; (extending the hands) to revere and worship  It can also mean to  “express-gratitude” (which is a form of praise). Often, the object of praise is Jehovah and sometimes yadah is associated with “communal laments” on the occasion of severe drought or military defeat.
An instructive example of the use of “yadah” is found in the definition and interpretation of the names Jacob’s first four sons, (1) Reuben (2) Simeon (3) Levi and (4) Judah in (Gen. 29:31-35)

What Leah, Jacob’s first wife,  lacks in comparison to her sister Rachel, is the love of her husband. Her distress is that she is neglected (v.31). When Jehovah looks upon her affliction (v.32), hears her (v.33), Leah’s  petition to Jehovah is presupposed. The birth of her fourth son, Judah, is the answer to her prayer (petition) and it leads to  “Yudah” – “Now, I will praise God.”  The sequential names of Jacob’s first four sons reveal an eternal formula that results in Leah’s exclamation “Now, I will praise the Lord.”

        (1) Reuben – “Behold, a son (a lawful heir). Now, will Jacob love me,?” (her need)
        (2) Simeon – “A hearing” – Leah states her case ” (her petition)
        (3) Levi “Jacob is finally is united with me” (her fulfillment)
        (4) Judah – “Now, I will praise the Lord” (her praise and thanks-giving)
