Judah, object of praise

Disappointed Leah shifts her focus away from manipulating others to love her, focusing onto what she already has, and always will have, her own fullness in living that doesn't depend on any person's response, but on her own response. Thus, when she bares her fourth son, she says, "Now will I praise the Lord," and names the child, Judah, which means, object of praise.

Mary Baker Eddy acknowledged the shift in focus, so that in defining the name Judah, she omitted the designation, "Jacob's son," and acknowledged the progress that Leah had made, referring to it as, "corporeal material belief progressing and disappearing; the spiritual understanding of God and man appearing."
