Rev 21:11

21:11 glory of God. Closely associated with the imagery of light, glory represents the majesty, awesomeness, and beauty of God. Glory, a prominent theme in 21:9–22:5, is associated with the temple and the appearing of God in the Old Testament (vv. 22, 23; 15:8; 22:5; Ex. 16:10; 24:16, 17; 40:34, 35; Is. 6:3; 40:3; 60:1, 2, 19, 20; Hab. 2:14; Zech. 2:5; John 1:14). God’s heavenly splendor as seen in ch. 4 now fills the new world.
