Tehillah (tel-hil-law’) 8416:
This type of praise is singing, but not just any type of singing. It’s the singing that bubbles up from our hearts. It’s a spontaneous type of singing. These songs are unrehearsed and unprepared. They are straight to God.

Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. (Psalm 22:3 ESV)

These are the types of “praises” that God enthrones or inhabits, which is interesting because it’s so specific: God literally lives in the SPONTANEOUS praises of His people!);

Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. (Psalm 33:1 ESV)

This type of praise is “fitting” for God’s people, or it literally makes them “look good“); When Isaiah talks about trading garments of ashes and mourning for garments of joy and praise, the word praise there literally means SPONTANEOUS praises!)
