We sing it and say it but what does Hallelujah really mean? Here’s how I found out by using The Bible Study App on my iPad.
First I searched on the word Hallelujah using the ESV Translation with Strong’s (in some translations the word is Alleluia). Interestingly enough Hallelujah is only found in four places in the New Testament and they are all in Revelation 19.
Because I’m using a Bible with Strong’s tagging I can then tap the word ‘Hallelujah’ to see the Greek word behind the English translation.
I can then tap ‘look up ἀλληλουϊα’ to see the Greek word in my other resources such as Vine’s or Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary or my Greek New Testament (NA 27 seen here) and compare them in the split screen.
These powerful tools make research and Bible study remarkably easy and whether you’re using The Bible Study App on an iPad, Android device, desktop, or phone the functionality is all very similar.
