2 Corinthians 3 KJV

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 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.
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 giveth life .a

      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 :

      15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read , the vail is upon * their heart.
      16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away .
      17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
