5193 hyálinos (an adjective, derived from 5194 /hýalos, "glass") – made of glass ("glassy"); "transparent as glass" (Souter).

In Scripture, transparency is a greatly valued virtue, representing the Lord's glory shining through (reflecting Himself!). For example, "the glassy sea" surrounding the throne of God in heaven (Rev 4:6, 15:2) is apparently what reflects the Lord Himself, as manifested (reflected by) His saints. By God's light, their sanctification-glorification has a spiritual transparency that reflects the image of Jesus Himself. This projects (reflects) the glory He invested in them as transformed ("transparent") saints. In this way, the Lord gets all the gloryand believers have the incredible privilege of sharing (reflecting) it!

Reflection: A. Tozer, "The Lord gives but He doesn't give away."
