I was reading comments on a thread two weeks ago and I came across a verse that says all good praises / words only belongs to Hashem. I can't remember where I save the text, please help me find this verse. I can't recall what book it was. Thanks

  • Is there a reason you chose that tag? If so please edit your post to reflect.

  • I can't find the right tag for this question. I just like to show a verse to a friend that he cannot connect negative words to Hashem become of this verse. It says something like we should praise Hashem with all beautiful / highest descriptions. Oct 21, 2020 at 9:58
  • I guess we’ll try our best, good luck

The closest I can find is in the the poem from the High Holiday liturgy HoAdereth VoHoEmunoh that has the stanza:

הַשִּׁיר וְהַשֶּׁבַח - לְחַי עוֹלָמִים

[All] songs and praises - [belong] to the Almighty


I suggest the following extract from the prayer, “Yishtabach” although it is not strictly a verse:

כִּי לְךָ נָאֶה ה' אֱלהֵינוּ וֵאלהֵי אֲבותֵינוּ שִׁיר וּשְׁבָחָה. הַלֵּל וְזִמְרָה. עוז וּמֶמְשָׁלָה. נֶצַח גְּדֻלָּה וּגְבוּרָה. תְּהִלָּה וְתִפְאֶרֶת. קְדֻשָּׁה וּמַלְכוּת: בְּרָכות וְהודָאות מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עולָם:

For to You is fitting, our God and the God of our forefathers, song and praise, hymn and psalm, strength and dominion, eternity, greatness and power holiness and kingship, blessing and acknowledgements from now and forever.
