Hallelujah!--part 2

The Word for today:
Psalms 148-150

Yesterday we celebrated Christmas with the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah.

We thought it would be particularly appropriate, since we are now reading the section of scripture (Psalms 146-150) known as the "Hallelujah Psalms."  These Psalms each begin and end with the same Hebrew phrase--Hallelujah--which your Bibles will translate as "Praise the LORD."

The Hallelujah Chorus, though associated with Christmas, is actually inspired by the book of Revelation--which, it so happens, we will turn to tomorrow.

So, in the spirit of yesterday's Christmas, today's Hallelujah Psalms, and tomorrow's Revelation, we reprise a recent flash mob performance of the Hallelujah Chorus.

Praise ye the LORD!
