17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
According to this testimony it is proved that the nations, or families, of the earth will become the people of God, as well as Israel, who will have the pre-eminence among them as the inheritance of the Lord; and so Israel and the nations will constitute a kingdom and empire, which will then compose "the world," and be blessed in Him and Abraham; whose subjects will reciprocate the benefits bestowed upon them, and serve their God-like rulers with heart felt loyalty, and blessings upon His name for ever.
Elpis Israel 2.2.
18 Blessed be the Yahweh Elohim, the Elohim of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
The glory of the Deity is intellectual, moral, and physical, all of which is covered by his name, which expresses what he really is. Thus, "His name is Jealous;" that is, "He is jealous;" "His name is holy;" that is, "He is holy;" and "His name is YAHWEH Tzavaoth;" that is, He who spoke to Jeremiah is He who shall be of armies, which is the meaning of the Name.
Thus, "the Name of the Deity" in scripture signifies every thing that He is as revealed therein.
When Moses said,
"I beseech thee, show me thy glory" -- it was replied, "I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim YAHWEH before thee by Name."
When we read the proclamation, we therefore read the name or character, of the Deity (Exod. xxxiv. 6). He knows all things, and there is nothing too hard for him to do. This is what he is abstractly and essentially. As he is, so he has always been from everlasting, and will be without end.
