For in death there is no remembrance of thee:
in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous:
for praise is comely for the upright.
Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth
his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints;
even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.
Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song,
and his praise in the congregation of saints.
O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee:
they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.
This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord,
that he might be glorified.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
1 Thes. 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually,
that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises
of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:
