12 Therefore, since we have such hope, (A)we use great boldness of speech— 13 unlike Moses, (B)who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at (C)the end of what was passing away. 14 But (D)their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. 15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 16 Nevertheless (E)when one turns to the Lord, (F)the veil is taken away. 17 Now (G)the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is (H)liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding (I)as in a mirror (J)the glory of the Lord, (K)are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as [a]by the Spirit of the Lord.

The Light of Christ’s Gospel

Therefore, since we have this ministry, (L)as we have received mercy, we (M)do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor [b]handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth (N)commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
