Praise and Thanksgiving Scripture Study

Exodus 15:2 (NIV)
The Lord is my strength and my defenses -
He is my God,
and I will praise Him,
my father's God,
and I will extol Him.

Write this verse in your journal. Add art, if you so desire.

Other translations
The Lord is my strength and song,
and He is become my salvation:
He is my God,
and I will prepare Him an habitation;
my father's God,
and I will exalt Him.

I'm singing my heart out to God -
what a victory!
He pitched horse and rider into the sea.
God is my strength,
God is my song,
and, yes!
God is my salvation.

(How did NIV go from song to defenses?!! I like song so much better. Interesting.)

extol - praise - acclaim - exalt

Nelson's Bible Commentary
Because "my strength and my song: is such an unusual pairing of words, some have thought that the word translated "song" must mean "power," "fortress," or something similar. A person of faith may regard the living, omnipotent God as the reason for singing!

(Ahhh. That explains it! I don't know about you, but I always feel like God is a reason to sing!)
