47_2CO_03_01 do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some [ others], epistles of commendation to you, or [ letters] of commendation from you?
47_2CO_03_02 ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known And read of all men:
47_2CO_03_03 [ Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.
47_2CO_03_04 And such trust have we through Christ to God ward:
47_2CO_03_05 not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [ Is] of God;
47_2CO_03_06 who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
47_2CO_03_07 but if the ministration of death, written [ And] engraven in stones, was glorious, So that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which [ glory] was to be done away:
47_2CO_03_08 how shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
47_2CO_03_09 for if the ministration of condemnation [ be] glory, much more Doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
47_2CO_03_10 for even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
47_2CO_03_11 for if that which Is done away [ was] glorious, much more that which remaineth [ Is] glorious.
47_2CO_03_12 seeing Then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
47_2CO_03_13 And not as Moses, [ which] put A veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly Look to the end of that which Is abolished:
47_2CO_03_14 but their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which [ veil] Is done away in Christ.
47_2CO_03_15 but even unto this day, when Moses Is read, the veil Is upon their heart.
47_2CO_03_16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the LORD, the veil shall be taken away.
47_2CO_03_17 now the LORD Is that spirit: And where the spirit of the LORD [ Is], there [ Is] liberty.
47_2CO_03_18 but we all, with open face beholding as in A glass the glory of the LORD, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [ even] as by the spirit of the LORD.
