2 Corinthians 3 KJV

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

References for 2 Corinthians 3:6

    • h 3:6 - giveth life: or, quickeneth
      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:
      10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
      11 For if that which is done away was glorious*, much more that which remaineth is glorious*.
      12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
      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 abolished:
      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.
      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.
