The book of Psalms is filled with praises to God. But there are also a few other places in the Bible where people focused on praising God. They were simply thankful and spoke of how God helped them or they talked of His amazing works. King David and Moses are examples. Daniel also praised God.
The king of Babylon had a troubling dream. All of his secular people of wisdom could not tell him the meaning. He got angry and said he would kill them and their families (including Daniel and his friends) if he did not get an answer. God told Daniel the interpretation. Daniel praised Him.
19 That night the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven. 20 He said,
“Praise the name of God forever and ever,
for he has all wisdom and power.
21 He controls the course of world events;
he removes kings and sets up other kings.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the scholars.
22 He reveals deep and mysterious things
and knows what lies hidden in darkness,
though he is surrounded by light.
23 I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors,
for you have given me wisdom and strength.
You have told me what we asked of you
and revealed to us what the king demanded.”
