2 Corinthians 3:1-8 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 Do you say that this is self-recommendation once more? Or do we need, as some do, letters of recommendation to you or from you? 2 Our letter of recommendation is yourselves--a letter written on our hearts and everywhere known and read. 3 For all can see that you are a letter of Christ entrusted to our care, and written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the ever-living God--and not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts as tablets. 4 Such is the confidence which we have through Christ in the presence of God; 5 not that of ourselves we are competent to decide anything by our own reasonings, but our competency comes from God. 6 It is He also who has made us competent to serve Him in connexion with a new Covenant, which is not a written code but a Spirit; for the written code inflicts death, but the Spirit gives Life. 7 If, however, the service that proclaims death--its code being engraved in writing upon stones--came with glory, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily on the face of Moses because of the brightness of his face--a vanishing brightness; 8 will not the service of the Spirit be far more glorious?
