[41] The Glory In Question Is The Divine Glory.

God glorified and exalted us in many means and ways. But non of it could, in any shape or form, be compared with God’s infinite glory, which is beyond our comprehension.

The Divine Glory is not bestowal.

This is the glory sought after by Satan, which caused his demise. This is the Glory coveted by Satan, and is the same Glory he tempted Adam and Eve with.

(Isa 14:14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'

(Gen 3:5) "For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

[42] The Remainder Of The Isaiah 42:8 Clearly Points To Idol Worship

(Isa 42:8) I am the LORD, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

[43] All The Succeeding Chapters Of Isaiah Revolve Around The Same Meaning

(Isa 43:10-11) "You are My witnesses," says the LORD, "And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. {11} I, even I, am the LORD, And besides Me there is no savior.

(Isa 44:6) "Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: 'I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.

(Isa 45:5-7) I am the LORD, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me, {6} That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other; {7} I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.'

[44] No One Can Claim That The Priesthood Is Robbery of God’s Divine Glory

Such accusations are not correct, especially that all priests are vicars operating through delegated authority conferred on them by God Himself.
