Psalm 26:8 - I love the house where you live, O LORD

NIV I love the house where you live, O LORD,
the place where your glory dwells.
KJV LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
NASB O LORD, I love the habitation of Your house
And the place where Your glory dwells.
Psalm 26:8


The Bible speaks often of the glory of God-the visible appearance of His beauty and perfection reduced to blazing light. His glory appeared to Moses in a burning bush in Midian (Ex. 3:1-6), in a cloud on Mt. Sinai (Ex. 24:15-17), and in a rock on Mt. Sinai (Ex. 33:18-23). The glory of God also filled the tabernacle (Ex. 40:34), led the people as a pillar of fire and cloud (Ex. 40:35-38), and also filled the temple in Jerusalem (1 Kin. 8:10, 11). When Aaron made the first sacrifice in the wilderness, as a priest, the "glory of the Lord appeared to all the people." In these manifestations, God was revealing His righteousness, holiness, truth, wisdom, and grace-the sum of all He is. However, nowhere has God's glory been more perfectly expressed than in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:14). It will be seen on earth again when He returns (Matt. 24:29-31; 25:31).
