Bible Notes

"Praise ye the Lord" (Ps. 148:1; 149:1)—It may be observed that our English word "hallulujah" is simply the anglicized form of the Hebrew term which is here translated: "Praise ye the Lord."

"Ye heavens of heavens" (Ps. 148:4; cf. Neh. 9:6)—Some authorities consider that this phrase "heavens of heavens" is practically equivalent in meaning to "the highest heaven," in accord with a well-known Hebrew idiom. A parallel to this usage is found in the phrase "vanity of vanities" (see Eccl. 1:2), which is usually taken as implying "absolute vanity"; while in Exodus 26:33, what is literally "holy of holies" is rendered "most holy" in our Aurhorized Version (compare Davidson: Hebrew Syntax, p. 49).
