A to Z Answers: eXtol the eXcellent One

Let us exalt the Lord together and extol His Holy Name.

What is extolling?

The word “extol” may be traced to the 14th Century Middle English term “extollen,” which is derived from a Latin word meaning “to raise” or “to lift up.”

Today, “extol” has several synonyms. To extol is to acclaim, applaud, celebrate, comment, exalt, glorify, laud, magnify, or praise. When we extol the Lord, we pay tribute to Him. We bless His Name.

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
   let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving
   and extol Him with music and song.
(Psalm 95:1-2, NIV)

Who’s ready to praise the Prince of Peace?


Authors and teachers, gurus and speakers ask a common question: “What is excellence?” We need only look upon the Excellent One, and we will know. Excellence is extolling the Creator who deserves all praise.
