2 Corinthians 3:16 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

It shall turn

The heart of Israel.

Shall be taken away (περιαιρεῖται)

Rev., correctly, is taken away. The verb occurs twice in Acts (Acts 27:20, Acts 27:40) of the taking away of hope, and of the unfastening of the anchors in Paul's shipwreck; and in Hebrews 10:11, of the taking away of sins. There is an allusion here to the removal of the veil from Moses' face whenever he returned to commune with God. See Exodus 34:34.
