“Flowing train (a badge of dignity in the East) . . .” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. I

At Jesus’ transfiguration, his garments became as white as the light, (see Matthew 17:2). God covered himself with light as a garment, (see Psalms 104:12). God’s “robe” is light, and that light filled the temple.

Isaiah described God’s garments to the best of his ability. But it was more than just light. It reflected:

  1. Dignity.
  2. Honor and Majesty, Psalms 104:12.
  3. Hidden Power, Habakkuk 3:4.
  4. Majesty and Strength, Psalms 93:1.
  5. Splendor and greatness of Strength, Isaiah 63:1.
