2nd Corinthians Chapter 3
3:1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others,
epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
3:3 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 fleshy tables of the heart.
3:4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of
ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
3:6 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
3:7 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:
3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the
ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
3:10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect,
by reason of the glory that excelleth.
3:11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which
remaineth is glorious.
3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of
3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children
of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is
3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same
vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is
done away in Christ.
3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their
3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be
3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is liberty.
3:18 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.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
