Arise, Shine…

Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1.
Glory #5319 in Strong’s is chabod it is explained as weightiness; that which is substantial or heavy; glory, honor, splendor, power, wealth, authority, magnificence, fame, dignity, riches, and excellency. The root of chabod is chabad, “to be heavy, glorious, and notable” “or to be renowned.”
In the Old Testament “heaviness” represented honor and substance, while “lightness” while lightness meant vanity, instability, temporariness, as well as emptiness (Judg. 9:4, Zeph.3:4)
Chabod is God’s glory, not only His honor, renown, and majesty, but also His visible splendor, which filled Solomon’s temple and will someday fill the earth (1 Kings 8:11; Num.14:21).
Some names are derived from Chabod are “Jochebed” (Yahweh is Glory) and “Ichabod” (Where is the Glory?”).
