047:003:001
Do we begin again to commend ourselves?
or need we,
as some others,
epistles of commendation to you,
or letters of commendation from you?


047:003:002
Ye are our epistle written in our hearts,
known and read of all men:


047:003:003
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.


047:003:004
And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:


047:003:005
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves;
but our sufficiency is of God;


047:003:006
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.


047:003:007
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:


047:003:008
How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?


047:003:009
For if the ministration of condemnation be glory,
much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.


047:003:010
For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect,
by reason of the glory that excelleth.


047:003:011
For if that which is done away was glorious,
much more that which remaineth is glorious.


047:003:012
Seeing then that we have such hope,
we use great plainness of speech:


047:003:013
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:


047:003:014
But their minds were blinded:
for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament;
which vail is done away in Christ.


047:003:015
But even unto this day,
when Moses is read,
the vail is upon their heart.


047:003:016
Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord,
the vail shall be taken away.


047:003:017
Now the Lord is that Spirit:
and where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is liberty.


047:003:018
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.
