2 Corinthians 3:18 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

All

Contrasted with Moses as the sole representative of the people.

Open (ἀνακεκαλυμμένῳ)

Rev., correctly, unveiled, as Moses when the veil was removed.

"Vainly they tried the deeps to sound

E'en of their own prophetic thought,

When of Christ crucified and crown'd

His Spirit in them taught:

But He their aching gaze repress'd

Which sought behind the veil to see,

For not without us fully bless'd

Or perfect might they be.

The rays of the Almighty's face

No sinner's eye might then receive
