Laud

Laud

To applaud; praise.

And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and LAUD him, all ye people. ( Romans 15:9-11 )

LAUD

lod:

A verb meaning "to praise," used in Romans 15:11 the King James Version, and Psalms 117:1; 145:4. The Revised Version (British and American) either should have avoided the word altogether or else should have used it much more extensively--preferably the latter, as the word is not obsolete in liturgical English.
