Judah
Celebrated, praised
Strong's #H3063, #G2455

Judah was the name of Jacob's (Israel's) fourth son, his fourth child through Leah. Those from this tribe, over time, were eventually referred to as Jews.

It should be noted that the King James Bible inaccurately translates Strong's #G2455 as "Judas" in Matthew 1:1 - 3 and "Juda" in Luke 3:26, 30, 33, Hebrews 7:14, 8:8, Revelation 5:5 and 7:5. The accurate translation of this word, in these verses, is "Judah" as they refer to one of Israel's many tribes.
