Praise and thanksgiving are primarily utterances. They come out of our mouths, we speak them, or we sing them, or we may even shout them. But worship is not primarily an utterance, and this is very important, because I found that very few people realize this. But so far as I know every word that's used in the original language of the Bible, either in the Hebrew of the Old Testament or in the Greek of the new for WORSHIP, describes an attitude of the body worship, it's not really an utterance, it is an attitude of course, not just an attitude of the physical body, but an attitude of the whole inner being.
There are certain specific attitudes which in the Bible are characteristic of worship. First of all bowing down the head. When Moses came from his interview with God at the burning bush back to his people in Egypt with the news that God was going to deliver them, and brought this message to the elders, it says they all bowed their heads, they worshiped. That was their first response. Wasn't an utterance, it was an attitude. And then often it's not just the head, but the upper part of the body.
