2 Corinthians 3:16

It shall turn (epistrepsei). The heart of Israel. The veil is taken away (periaireitai to kalumma). Present passive indicative of periairew, old verb, to take from around, as of anchors ( Acts 27:40 ), to cut loose ( Acts 28:13 ), for hope to be taken away ( Acts 27:20 ). Here Paul has in mind Exodus 34:34 where we find of Moses that perihreito to kalumma (the veil was taken from around his face) whenever he went before the Lord. After the ceremony the veil is taken from around (peri-) the face of the bride.
