Word Study: Exult versus Exalt

Exult - verb used without object: 1. To show or feel a lovely or triumphant joy; rejoice exceedingly; be highly elated or jubilant. 2. Obsolete, to leap, especially for joy.

Exalt - verb used with object: 1. To raise in rank, honor, power, character, quality, etc.; elevate. 2. To praise; extol. 3. To stimulate, as the imagination. 4. To intensify, as a color. 5. Obsolete, to elate, as with pride or joy.

We will exult over the fact so many seniors graduated with honors this year. 

We exalt God to whom all praise and glory and honor is due. 

God is to be highly exalted for He is above all things. 

Psalm 89:15-16 - Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O Lord, in the light of your face, who exult in your name all the day and in your righteousness are exalted.

Blessed are the people who rejoice exceedingly in Your name and in your righteousness are raised in rank and honor and character.
