Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will spring forth speedily,
and your righteousness will go before you;
the glory of Yahweh will be your rear guard. Bible see other translations

“the glory of Yahweh will be your rear guard.” The glory of Yahweh is the brilliant cloud of light surrounding Yahweh, so if the glory of Yahweh is our rear guard, then God follows behind us guarding our backs from the enemy. [For more on the glory of God, see commentary on Ezekiel 1:28].
