The glory of Yahweh will be revealed,
and all flesh will see it together,
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.” Bible other translations

“the glory of Yahweh will be revealed.” This is speaking about the second coming of Christ, when he comes to conquer the earth, and it is therefore future. In this context “the glory of Yahweh” almost certainly has several meanings. The word “glory” can in some contexts refer to power, and in this context of the coming of Yahweh, the power of Yahweh will be revealed as he conquers the earth. Furthermore “all flesh will see it together,” so this refers to the Messiah’s coming when he comes to earth to fight the battle of Armageddon. This is the time when “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him” (Rev. 1:7). Also, as Christ’s kingdom is established on earth, the “glory of Yahweh,” the glorious light that surrounds Yahweh, will be seen as well.
