18Moses said, Show me your glory, I pray. 19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim before you the name, The Lord;* and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. 20But, he said, you cannot see my face; for no one shall see me and live. 21And the Lord continued, See, there is a place by me where you shall stand on the rock; 22and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by; 23then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall not be seen.
14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a fathers only son,* full of grace and truth.
15(John testified to him and cried out, This was he of whom I said, He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me. )
16From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
17The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
18No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son,* who is close to the Fathers heart,* who has made him known.
1 The Lord is king: let the earth rejoice;
let the multitude of the isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and burns up his enemies on every side.
4 His lightnings lit up the world;
the earth saw it and trembled.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declared his righteousness,
and all the peoples have seen his glory.
7 Confounded be all who worship carved images
and delight in mere idols.
Bow down before him, all you gods.
8 Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced,
because of your judgements, O Lord.
9 For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 The Lord loves those who hate evil;
he preserves the lives of his faithful
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light has sprung up for the righteous
and joy for the true of heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name.
