glis´tẽr - ing ( פוּך , pūkh , "dye" (spec. "stibium"), "fair colors"; στίλβοντα , stı́lbonta ): "'Glistering stones' ( 1 Chronicles 29:2 ) is better than the 'inlaid' of the Revised Version (British and American); for some kind of colored, brilliant stone seems meant" (HDB , II, 182); compare Isaiah 54:11 Revised Version, margin. The term is employed in Mark 9:3 to denote the white, lustrous appearance of Christ's garments at the transfiguration. It occurs nowhere else in the New Testament. For once the Divine effulgence shone through the veil of the humiliation (compare John 1:14 ).
