2 Corinthians 3;15-18
2Co 3:15 But, even today, a veil rests over their hearts whenever Moses is read.
2Co 3:16 But when someone turns to the Lord, that veil is removed.
2Co 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, freedom is.
2Co 3:18 And we all, who have had that veil removed, noticing the brightness of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one shade of brightness to another. Because this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
turn, see, be transformed
Paul is describing people who read the scriptures. There are two types. Those who read with a veil over their faces, who are not changed, stay in bondage. But those who turn to the Lord lose the veil. The result is freedom from the bondage, a vision of the brightness of the Spirit of God, and transformation into the same image — from one shade (not of gray, but of brightness) to another.
LORD, we see a beautiful image of a free, glorious being. Change us into what we see in Christ.
