Glory as the "Intrinsic Weightiness" of Yahweh

Commenting on the call to worship in Ps 29:1-2:

The glory of Yahweh speaks of his honor or eminence, and also of his awesome visible manifestation.

Glory, then, is the intrinsic weightiness of Yahweh, which serves as the factual basis for the response of praise to which he is rightfully entitled.
—Dan Estes, Handbook on the Wisdom Books and Psalms, 160.
