  • (I) hallelujah, as a verb (1st sing., pres. ind. tense), in Italian.

    Used by a few authors, including Dante:

    Quali i beati al novissimo bando

    surgeran presti ognun di sua caverna,

    la revestita voce alleluiando,

    cotali in su la divina basterna

    si levar cento, ad vocem tanti senis,

    ministri e messaggier di vita etterna.
