CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
8:16 Joy - This explains the former metaphor by two words expressing the same thing, to denote the greatness of the joy. Honour - Instead of that contempt under which they had lain.
Light shines on the godly, and joy on those whose hearts are right.
Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
The LORD is God, shining upon us. Take the sacrifice and bind it with cords on the altar.
