This double CHIASM continues the prophetic vision of the coming of the Messiah. There are three emphatic portions:

1) There is a CONTRAST between the light / glory of the LORD and the darkness in the first CHIASM. Although the darkness covers the earth, those who look will see the light which is the glory of the LORD.

2) The second CHIASM embellishes the first chiasm. In the CENTER POINT of that second chiasm, when that light is seen they will radiate with the glory of the LORD.

3) The CENTER POINT of the first chiasm is completely opposite that of the second. In the first, there is deep darkness covering the earth; in the second there is the glory of the LORD which is a radiant light.
