Praising the King of Kings -
Melekh me'hullal batishbachot
From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same
the LORD'S name is to be praised. - Psalm 113:3
The expression of gratitude to God is a fundamental response to His ongoing grace and Presence in our lives. The LORD God of Israel is to be praised, not because He needs our applause, but because this is the spontaneous response to the heart's apprehension of His glory and goodness to us.
The following little phrase is used in various portions of the Jewish (Hallel) liturgy to express the truth that the LORD is a King who is worthy to be praised:
Blessed are You, LORD, a King to be praised in adoration.
Barukh attah Adonai, melekh me'hullal batishbachot.
