Glory

Additional Links

Hebrew kabod , "weight," alluded to 2 Corinthians 4:17; "our lightness of affliction worketh out for us a weight of glory," exceeding beyond all measure the affliction. "My glory" is my soul, man's noblest part; rather my tongue, as explained in Acts 2:26. So Psalms 30:12 margin; Psalms 57:8; Psalms 108:1. The tongue, as the soul's interpreter, is the glory of man above the brute, and the instrument of glorifying God, man's highest glory. David not only exults inwardly, but makes his "tongue" and "flesh" sharers of his joy. As God is the saints' glory (Jeremiah 2:11), so they are His glory (Jeremiah 13:11; Isaiah 62:3).
