1 G756 Do we begin G3825 again G1438 to commend ourselves, G4921 G1508 unless G5535 we need, G5613 as G5100 some, G4956 of introductory G1992 letters G4314 to G1473 you, G2228 or G1537 [2from G1473 3you G4956 1introductory letters]?
2 G3588 G1992 [3our letter G1473 G1473 1You G1510.2.5 2are] G1449 being written G1722 in G3588 G2588 our hearts, G1473 G1097 being known G2532 and G314 being read G5259 by G3956 all G444 men;
3 G5319 being manifested G3754 that G1510.2.5 you are G1992 [2letter G5547 1Christ's] G1247 served G5259 by G1473 us, G1449 having been written G3756 not G3188 with ink, G235 but G4151 by spirit G2316 of the living God; G2198 G3756 not G1722 on G4109 tablets G3035 of stones, G235 but G1722 on G4109 [2tablets G2588 3of the heart G4560 1fleshly].
4 G4006 [3reliance G1161 1And G5108 2such] G2192 we have G1223 through G3588 the G5547 Christ G4314 towards G3588 G2316 God;
5 G3756 not G3754 that G2425 we are fit G1510.2.4 G575 of G1438 ourselves G3049 to consider G5100 anything G5613 as G1537 from out of G1438 ourselves, G237.1 but G2426 our fitness G1473 G1537 is of G3588 G2316 God;
6 G3739 who G2532 also G2427 made us fit G1473 G1249 servants G2537 of a new G1242 covenant, G3756 not G1121 of contract, G235 but G4151 of spirit. G3588 For the G1063 G1121 contract G615 kills, G3588 but the G1161 G4151 spirit G2227 restores to life.
7 G1487 And if G1161 G3588 the G1248 service G3588 G2288 of death G1722 in G1121 contracts G1795 having been impressed G1722 in G3037 stones, G1096 happened G1722 for G1391 glory, G5620 so as for G3361 [4to not G1410 5be able G816 6to gaze G3588 1the G5207 2sons G* 3of Israel] G1519 into G3588 the G4383 face G* of Moses G1223 because of G3588 the G1391 glory G3588 G4383 of his face, G1473 G3588 the one G2673 being cleared away;
8 G4459 how G3780 not G3123 more G3588 the G1248 service G3588 of the G4151 spirit G1510.8.3 will be G1722 in G1391 glory?
9 G1487 For if G1063 G3588 the G1248 service G3588 G2633 of condemnation G1391 be glory, G4183 much G3123 rather G4052 abounds G3588 the G1248 service G3588 G1343 of righteousness G1722 in G1391 glory.
10 G2532 For also G1063 G3761 not even G1392 [3has been glorified G3588 1the thing G1392 2having been glorified] G1722 in G3778 this G3588 G3313 part, G1752 on account of G3588 the G5235 exceeding G1391 glory.
11 G1487 For if G1063 G3588 the thing G2673 being cleared away G1223 was through G1391 glory, G4183 much G3123 rather G3588 the thing G3306 which remains G1722 is in G1391 glory.
12 G2192 Having G3767 then G5108 such G1680 hope, G4183 [2in much G3954 3confidence G5530 1we deal];
13 G2532 and G3756 not G2509 as G* Moses G5087 put G2571 a covering G1909 upon G3588 the G4383 face G1438 of himself, G4314 for G3588 the thing G3361 [4to not G816 5gaze G3588 1of the G5207 2sons G* 3of Israel] G1519 unto G3588 the G5056 end G3588 of the thing G2673 being cleared away.
14 G235 But G4456 [2were calloused G3588 G3540 1their thoughts]. G1473 G891 For as far as G1063 G3588 G4594 today G3588 the G1473 same G2571 covering G1909 [2upon G3588 3the G320 4reading G3588 5of the G3820 6old G1242 7covenant G3306 1remains], G3361 not G343 uncovered, G3754 which G1722 in G5547 Christ G2673 is being cleared away.
15 G235 But G2193 unto G4594 today, G2259 when G314 Moses is read, G* G2571 a covering G1909 [2upon G3588 G2588 3their heart G1473 G2749 1lies].
16 G2259 But when G1161 G302 ever G1994 it should turn G4314 towards G2962 the Lord, G4014 [3is removed G3588 1the G2571 2covering].
17 G3588 And the G1161 G2962 Lord G3588 [2the G4151 3spirit G1510.2.3 1is]; G3739 but where G1161 G3588 the G4151 spirit G2962 of the Lord is, G1563 there is G1657 freedom.
