God’s Glory and Goodness

God's Glory in Salvation Through Judgment

Moses said, “Please show me your glory.” And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The LORD.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.

–Exodus 33:18-19

Note that when Moses asks to see God’s glory, God responds that he will show him his goodness and proclaim his name. This means that God’s glory is seen in his goodness, and the proclamation of his name reveals Yahweh’s goodness, which is his glory.
