God of glory

Acts 7:2

7:2 God of glory. This title—“the God of glory”—occurs only one other time in the Bible, in Psalm 29:3: “The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.” In context, this psalm records David’s retrospective vision of the great Flood (for details, see the notes on Psalm 29). Stephen’s use of this name at the beginning of his apologetics exhortation to these rulers of Israel was probably to remind them that the same Creator God who judged the whole world in the days of Noah had called Abram, not just to found an elect nation but to use that nation to bring the promised seed who would bless all nations.
