2 Peter 1:17 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

When there came (ἐνεχθείσης)

Lit., having been borne. Compare come (Rev., 2 Peter 1:18); moved (2 Peter 1:21); and rushing wind, lit., a wind borne along (Acts 2:2).

From (ὑπὸ)

Lit., by.

Excellent (μεγαλοπρεποῦς)

Or sublime. Only here in New Testament. In Septuagint (Deuteronomy 33:26), as an epithet of God, excellency. The phrase excellent glory refers to the bright cloud which overshadowed the company on the transfiguration mount, like the shekinah above the mercy-seat.
