My Lent Words 32: The glory of the Lord

Kabod describes honour, splendour and wealth. It suggests external qualities of quality and weight. It has a certain heaviness about it as a word. Perhaps we might imagine someone weighted down by treasure. ‘

The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the pine, the fir and the cypress together, to adorn the place of my sanctuary; and I will glorify the place of my feet.’ (Isaiah 60:13)

‘Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.’ (Isaiah 60:1)

‘Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.’ (Exodus 40:34)

‘And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.’ (Isaiah 40:5)

This glory is outstanding quality.
