She ... bore a son,
"This time I will praise the LORD."
Therefore she called his name Judah.
It suddenly occurred to me today
Leah had been craving Jacob's affection
but was disappointed.
She reached the point of commitment
where she was going to praise God anyway,
even in the midst of rejection.
Judah means 'praise'.
The word 'Jew' means praise.
'But Thou art holy,
O Thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.'
see Psalm 22:3
