GLORY of the LORD

 

Luke 2:9

King James Version

9 And, lo, 

the angel of the Lord came upon them, 

and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: 

and they were sore afraid.


SPIRIT led me to WORD study for He knew I was particular about words.

It's how He teaches me about EVERY word from Scripture.

Today, He led me to the phrase "glory of the Lord".

What does it mean?

Again, we turn to the Bible versions:
