Honor (Noun and Verb):

"to glorify" (from doxa, A, No. 2), is rendered "honor" and "honoreth" in the AV of Jhn 8:54; in 1Cr 12:26, however, in reference to the members of the body, both AV and RV have "honored" (RV marg., "glorified"). Everywhere else it is translated by some form of the verb "to glorify," "have glory," or "be made glorious," except in Rom 11:13, "magnify," AV.
