III. The Ministers
of the New Covenant
A. Constituted by and with the Lord
as the Life-giving and Transforming Spirit
12 Therefore since we have such 1hope, we use much 2aboldness,
13 And are not like Moses, who put a aveil on his face so that the sons of Israel would not gaze 1at the end of that which was being done away with.
14 But their 1athoughts were bhardened; for until the present day the same veil remains at the creading of the old covenant, 2it not being unveiled to them that the veil is being done away with in Christ.
15 Indeed unto this day, whenever 1Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart;
16 But whenever 1their heart turns to the Lord, the aveil is taken away.
17 1And the 2Lord is the 3aSpirit; and where the 4bSpirit of the Lord is, there is 5cfreedom.
18 1But 2we all with 3unveiled face, 4abeholding and reflecting like a 5bmirror the 6cglory of the Lord, are 7being dtransformed into the 8same eimage 9from glory to fglory, even as 10from the 11Lord Spirit.
