lod: A verb meaning "to praise," used in Romans 15:11 the King James Version, and Psalm 117:1; Psalm 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.
