The meaning of Glory in the Bible
(From Easton's Bible Dictionary)

(Heb. kabhod; Gr. doxa).

  • Abundance, wealth, treasure, and hence honour (Psalms 49:12); glory (Genesis 31:1; Matthew 4:8; Revelation 21:24,26).

  • Honour, dignity (I Kings 3:13; Hebrews 2:7 I Peter 1:24); of God (Psalms 19:1; 29:1); of the mind or heart (Genesis 49:6; Psalms 7:5; Acts 2:46).

  • Splendour, brightness, majesty (Genesis 45:13; Isaiah 4:5; Acts 22:11; 2co 3:7); of Jehovah (Isaiah 59:19; 60:1; 2th. 1:9).

  • The glorious moral attributes, the infinite perfections of God (Isaiah 40:5; Acts 7:2; Romans 1:23; 9:23; Ephesians 1:12). Jesus is the "brightness of the Father's glory" (Hebrews 1:3; John 1:14; 2:11).

  • The bliss of heaven (Romans 2:7,10; 5:2; 8:18; Hebrews 2:10; I Peter 5:1,10).

  • The phrase "Give glory to God" (Joshua 7:19; Jeremiah 13:16) is a Hebrew idiom meaning, "Confess your sins." The words of the Jews to the blind man, "Give God the praise" (John 9:24), are an adjuration to confess. They are equivalent to, "Confess that you are an impostor," "Give God the glory by speaking the truth;" for they denied that a miracle had been wrought.
