Easton's Bible Dictionary


(1.) To make glorious, or cause so to appear (Jhn 12:28; 13:31,32; 17:4,5).

(2.) Spoken of God to "shew forth his praise" (1Cr 6:20; 10:31).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


glo'-ri-fi: The English word is the equivalent of a number of Hebrew and Greek words whose essential significance is discussed more fully under the word GLORY (which see). The word "glorious" in the phrases "make or render glorious" is used most frequently as a translation of verbs in the original, rather than of genuine adjectives In dealing with the verb it will be sufficient to indicate the following most important uses.

(1) Men may glorify God, that is, give to Him the worship and reverence which are His due (Isa 24:15; 25:3; Ps 22:23; Da 5:23; #/APC Sirach 43:30; Mt 5:16, and generally in the Synoptic Gospels and in some other passages of the New Testament).

(2) God, Yahweh (Yahweh), glorifies His people, His house, and in the New Testament, His Son, manifesting His approval of them and His interest in them, by His interposition on their behalf (Isa 55:5; Jer 30:19; The Wisdom of Solomon 18:8; Sirach 45:3; Joh 7:39, and often in the Fourth Gospel).

(3) By a usage which is practically confined to the Old Testament, Yahweh glorifies Himself, that is, secures the recognition of His honor and majesty, by His direction of the course of history, or by His interposition in history, either the history of His own people or of the world at large (Le 10:3; Isa 26:15; Eze 28:22; Hag 1:8).

Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1392 Greek: doxazo


primarily denotes "to suppose" (from doxa, "an opinion"); in the NT

(a) "to magnify, extol, praise" (see doxa below), especially of "glorifying;" God, i.e., ascribing honor to Him, acknowledging Him as to His being, attributes and acts, i.e., His glory (see GLORY), e.g., Mat 5:16; 9:8; 15:31; Rom 15:6, 9; Gal 1:24; 1Pe 4:16; the Word of the Lord, Act 13:48; the Name of the Lord, Rev 15:4; also of "glorifying" oneself, Jhn 8:54; Rev 18:7;

(b) "to do honor to, to make glorious, e.g., Rom 8:30; 2Cr 3:10; 1Pe 1:8, "full of glory," Passive Voice (lit., "glorified"); said of Christ, e.g., Jhn 7:39; 8:54, RV, "glorifieth," for AV, "honor" and "honoreth" (which would translate timao, "to honor"); of the Father, e.g., Jhn 13:31, 32; 21:19; 1Pe 4:11; of "glorifying" one's ministry, Rom 11:13, RV, "glorify" (AV, "magnify"); of a member of the body, 1Cr 12:26, "be honored" (RV marg., "be glorified").

"As the glory of God is the revelation and manifestation of all that He has and is..., it is said of a Self-revelation in which God manifests all the goodness that is His, Jhn 12:28. So far as it is Christ through whom this is made manifest, He is said to glorify the Father, Jhn 17:1, 4; or the Father is glorified in Him, Jhn 13:31; 14:13; and Christ's meaning is analogous when He says to His disciples, 'Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; and so shall ye be My disciples,' Jhn 15:8. When doxazo is predicated of Christ..., it means simply that His innate glory is brought to light, is made manifest; cp. Jhn 11:4. So Jhn 7:39; 12:16, 23; 13:31; 17:1, 5. It is an act of God the Father in Him.... As the revelation of the Holy Spirit is connected with the glorification of Christ, Christ says regarding Him, "He shall glorify Me,' Jhn 16:14" (Cremer).

2 Strong's Number: g1740 Greek: endoxazo


No. 1 prefixed by en, "in," signifies, in the Passive Voice, "to be glorified," i.e., to exhibit one's glory; it is said of God, regarding His saints in the future, 2Th 1:10, and of the name of the Lord Jesus as "glorified" in them in the present, 2Th 1:12.

3 Strong's Number: g4888 Greek: sundoxazo


"to glorify together" (sun, "with"), is used in Rom 8:17.
