121Thereforehavingsuch a hope, 2we usegreatboldness in our speech,
and are not likeMoses, 3who used to put a veilover his faceso that the sons of Israel would not lookintently at the end of what was fadingaway.
But their minds were 4hardened ; for untilthisveryday at the 5reading of 6the oldcovenant the sameveilaremainsunlifted, because it is removed in Christ.
But to thisdaywheneverMoses is read, a veilliesover their heart ;
167but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is takenaway.
17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where8the Spirit of the Lord is, 9there is liberty.
But we all, with unveiledface, 10beholding as in a mirror the 11glory of the Lord, are being 12transformed into the sameimage from glory to glory, just as from 13the Lord, the Spirit.
