3 In that ye are [a]manifest, to be the Epistle of Christ, [b]ministered by us, and written, not with ink, but with the Spirit of the [c]living God, [d]not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.
2 Corinthians 3:3The Apostle frameth his speech wisely, that by little and little he may come from the commendation of the person, to the matter itself.
2 Corinthians 3:3By the way he setteth the virtue of God, against the ink wherewith Epistles are commonly written, to show that it was wrought by God.
2 Corinthians 3:3He alludeth by the way, to the comparison of the outward ministry of the Priesthood of Levi, with the ministry of the Gospel, and the Apostolic ministry, which he handleth afterward more fully.
