The word “glory” is an abstract word. If we look at how this word is paralleled with other words in poetical passages of the Bible, we can discover the original concrete meaning of this word. In Psalm 3:3 the kavod of Elohiym (God) is paralleled with his “shield,” and in Job 29:20, Job’s kavod is paralleled with his “bow.” In Psalm 24:8 we read “who is this king of the kavod, YHWH is strong and mighty, YHWH is mighty in battle.” The original concrete meaning of kavod is “battle armaments.” The meaning “armament” fits with the literal meaning of the root of kavod, which is “heavy.” Armaments are the heavy weapons and defenses of battle. In the Exodus 16:7, Israel will “see” the “armament” of YHWH, the one who has done battle for them with the Egyptians.
