2 Corinthians 3:15-18

Context
3:15 But until this very day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their minds, 1  3:16 but when one 2  turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 3  3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is present, 4  there is freedom. 3:18 And we all, with unveiled faces reflecting the glory of the Lord, 5  are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another, 6  which is from 7  the Lord, who is the Spirit. 8 

1 tn Grk “their heart.”

2 tn Or perhaps “when(ever) he turns,” referring to Moses.

3 sn An allusion to Exod 34:34. The entire verse may refer to Moses, viewing him as a type portraying the Jewish convert to Christianity in Paul’s day.

4 tn Grk “where the Spirit of the Lord is”; the word “present” is supplied to specify that the presence of the Lord’s Spirit is emphasized rather than the mere existence of the Lord’s Spirit.

5 tn Or “we all with unveiled faces beholding the glory of the Lord as in a mirror.”

6 tn Grk “from glory to glory.”

7 tn Grk “just as from.”

8 tn Grk “from the Lord, the Spirit”; the genitive πνεύματος (pneumato") has been translated as a genitive of apposition.
