2 Corinthians 3:15–4:6

15 But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their heart;

16 abut whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where athe Spirit of the Lord is, bthere is liberty.

18 But we all, with unveiled face, abeholding as in a mirror the bglory of the Lord, are being ctransformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from dthe Lord, the Spirit.

Chapter 4

Paul’s Apostolic Ministry

1 Therefore, since we have this aministry, as we breceived mercy, we cdo not lose heart,

2 but we have renounced the athings hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or badulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth ccommending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

3 And even if our agospel is bveiled, it is veiled 1to cthose who are perishing,

4 in whose case athe god of bthis 1world has cblinded the minds of the unbelieving 2so that they might not see the dlight of the gospel of the eglory of Christ, who is the fimage of God.

5 For we ado not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants 1for Jesus’ sake.

6 For God, who said, “aLight shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has bshone in our hearts to give the cLight of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
