In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

  1. Commendation bestowed on a person for his personal virtues or worthy actions, on meritorious actions themselves, or on any thing valuable; approbation expressed in words or song. Praise may be expressed by an individual, and in this circumstance differs from fame, renown, and celebrity, which are the expression of the approbation of numbers, or public commendation. When praise is applied to the expression of public approbation, it may be synonymous with renown, or nearly so. A man may deserve the praise of an individual, or of a nation. There are men who always confound the praise of goodness with the practice. – Rambler.
  2. The expression of gratitude for personal favors conferred; a glorifying or extolling. He hath put a new song into my mouth, even praise to our God. – Ps. xi.
  3. The object, ground or reason of praise. He is thy praise, and he is thy God. – Deut. x.

PRAISE, v.t. [D. pryzen, to praise; pryzeeren, to estimate or value; G. preisen, to praise; Dan. priser, to praise, extol or lift up; Sw. prisa; W. prisiaw; Arm. presa; Fr. priser, to prize, to value; It. prezzare; Sp. preciar; Port. prezar, to estimate; prezarse, to boast or glory. It appears that praise, price, prize, are all from one root, the primary sense of which is to lift, to raise, or rather to strain. So from L. tollo, extollo, we have extol. Now in Dan. roser, Sw. rosa, signifies to praise, and it may be questioned whether this is praise without a prefix. The Latin pretium, W. prid, is probably from the same root, denoting that which is taken for a thing sold, or the rising or amount, as we use high; a high value or price; corn is high. In Pers. اَفَرَاْز afaraz, is high, lofty; اَفْرَازِيدَنْ afrazidan, to extol. Qu. Fr. prôner, for prosner.]

  1. To commend; to applaud; to express approbation of personal worth or actions. We praise not Hector, though his name we know / Is great in arms; 'tis hard to praise a foe. – Dryden.
  2. To extol in words or song; to magnify; to glorify on account of perfections or excellent works. Praise him, all his angels; praise ye him, all his hosts. – Ps. cxlviii.
  3. To express gratitude for personal favors. – Ps. cxxxviii.
  4. To do honor to; to display the excellence of. All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord. – Ps. cxiv.

Noah's 1828 Dictionary

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

* As a note, I have purchased each of these products. In fact, as we have been developing the Project:: 1828 Reprint, I have purchased several of the bulky hard-cover dictionaries. My opinion is that the 2000-page hard-cover edition is the only good viable solution at this time. The compact edition was a bit disappointing and the CD-ROM as well.
