3:1 Do we begin [G756] again [G3825] to commend [G4921] ourselves [G1438] ? or [G1508] need we [G5535] , as [G5613] some [G5100] [others], epistles [G1992] of commendation [G4956] to [G4314] you [G5209] , or [G2228] [letters] of commendation [G4956] from [G1537] you [G5216] ?

3:2 Ye [G5210] are [G2075] our [G2257] epistle [G1992] written [G1449] in [G1722] our [G2257] hearts [G2588] , known [G1097] and [G2532] read [G314] of [G5259] all [G3956] men [G444] :

3:3 [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared [G5319] to [G3754] be [G2075] the epistle [G1992] of Christ [G5547] ministered [G1247] by [G5259] us [G2257] , written [G1449] not [G3756] with ink [G3188] , but [G235] with the Spirit [G4151] of the living [G2198] God [G2316] ; not [G3756] in [G1722] tables [G4109] of stone [G3035] , but [G235] in [G1722] fleshy [G4560] tables [G4109] of the heart [G2588] .

3:4 And [G1161] such [G5108] trust [G4006] have we [G2192] through [G1223] Christ [G5547] to [G4314] God-ward [G2316] :

3:5 Not [G3756] that [G3754] we are [G2070] sufficient [G2425] of [G575] ourselves [G1438] to think [G3049] any thing [G5100] as [G5613] of [G1537] ourselves [G1438] ; but [G235] our [G2257] sufficiency [G2426] [is] of [G1537] God [G2316] ;

3:6 Who [G3739] also [G2532] hath made [G2427] us [G2248] able [G2427] ministers [G1249] of the new [G2537] testament [G1242] ; not [G3756] of the letter [G1121] , but [G235] of the spirit [G4151] : for [G1063] the letter [G1121] killeth [G615] , but [G1161] the spirit [G4151] giveth life [G2227] .(giveth life: or, quickeneth)

3:7 But [G1161] if [G1487] the ministration [G1248] of death [G2288] , written [G1722] [G1121] [and] engraven [G1795] in [G1722] stones [G3037] , was [G1096] glorious [G1722] [G1391] , so [G5620] that the children [G5207] of Israel [G2474] could [G1410] not [G3361] stedfastly behold [G816] the face [G1519] [G4383] of Moses [G3475] for [G1223] the glory [G1391] of his [G846] countenance [G4383] ; which [G3588] [glory] was to be done away [G2673] :

3:8 How [G4459] shall [G1248] not [G3780] the ministration [G1248] of the spirit [G4151] be [G2071] rather [G3123] [G1722] glorious [G1391] ?

3:9 For [G1063] if [G1487] the ministration [G1248] of condemnation [G2633] [be] glory [G1391] , much [G4183] more [G3123] doth the ministration [G1248] of righteousness [G1343] exceed [G4052] in [G1722] glory [G1391] .

3:10 For [G1063] even [G2532] that which was made glorious [G1392] had no [G3761] glory [G1392] in [G1722] this [G5129] respect [G3313] , by reason [G1752] of the glory [G1391] that excelleth [G5235] .

3:11 For [G1063] if [G1487] that which is done away [G2673] [was] glorious [G1223] [G1391] , much [G4183] more [G3123] that which remaineth [G3306] [is] glorious [G1722] [G1391] .

3:12 Seeing then [G3767] that we have [G2192] such [G5108] hope [G1680] , we use [G5530] great [G4183] plainness of speech [G3954] :(plainness: or, boldness)

3:13 And [G2532] not [G3756] as [G2509] Moses [G3475] , [which] put [G5087] a vail [G2571] over [G1909] his [G1438] face [G4383] , that [G4314] the children [G5207] of Israel [G2474] could [G816] not [G3361] stedfastly look [G816] to [G1519] the end [G5056] of that which is abolished [G2673] :

3:14 But [G235] their [G846] minds [G3540] were blinded [G4456] : for [G1063] until [G891] this day [G4594] remaineth [G3306] the same [G846] vail [G2571] untaken [G3361] away [G343] in [G1909] the reading [G320] of the old [G3820] testament [G1242] ; which [G3748] [vail] is done away [G2673] in [G1722] Christ [G5547] .

3:15 But [G235] even [G2193] unto this day [G4594] , when [G2259] Moses [G3475] is read [G314] , the vail [G2571] is upon [G2749] [G1909] their [G846] heart [G2588] .

3:16 Nevertheless [G1161] when [G2259] it [G302] shall turn [G1994] to [G4314] the Lord [G2962] , the vail [G2571] shall be taken away [G4014] .

3:17 Now [G1161] the Lord [G2962] is [G2076] that Spirit [G4151] : and [G1161] where [G3757] the Spirit [G4151] of the Lord [G2962] [is], there [G1563] [is] liberty [G1657] .

3:18 But [G1161] we [G2249] all [G3956] , with open [G343] face [G4383] beholding as in a glass [G2734] the glory [G1391] of the Lord [G2962] , are changed [G3339] into the same [G846] image [G1504] from [G575] glory [G1391] to [G1519] glory [G1391] , [even] as [G2509] by [G575] the Spirit [G4151] of the Lord [G2962] .(by the: or, of the Lord the Spirit)
