“. . . that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven,
on the earth and under the earth. . . “
“ . . at the name of Jesus. . .” When God announces His son’s name at the last judgment. I envision a time of people being either terrified or relieved at this time.
“. . .every knee shall bow. . .”.When a person bows, they show respect to the person of higher status. In the United States, we consider all men and women to be equal, so we don’t practice bowing or curtseying as a regular habit.
