Alleluia. So written in Revelation 19:6 foll., or more properly Hallelujah, praise ye Jehovah, as it is found in the margin of Psalms 104:35; Psalms 105:45; Psalms 106; Psalms 111:1; Psalms 112:1; Psalms 113:1. Compare Psalms 113:9; Psalms 115:18; Psalms 116:19, Psalms 117:2. The literal meaning of "hallelujah", sufficiently indicates the character of the Psalms in which it occurs, as hymns of praise and thanksgiving.
