Hallelujah, Halleluyah and the Latin form Alleluia are transliterations of the Hebrew word הללו יה (Standard Halleluya, Tiberian Halləlûyāh) meaning "Praise God" (from the first two letters of YHWH). Hallelujah is found primarily in the book of Psalms. The word is used in Judaism as part of the Hallel prayers, and in Christian prayer. It has been accepted into the English language and has a similar pronunciation in many other languages.
