The KJV Bible With Strong's References:

2 Corinthians 3

3:1  Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
3:2   Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
3:3  Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
3:4   And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
3:5   Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
3:6   Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
3:7   But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious *, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
3:8   How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather *  glorious?
3:9   For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
3:10   For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
3:11   For if that which is done away was glorious *, much more that which remaineth is glorious *.
3:12  Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
3:13   And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
3:14   But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
3:15   But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon *  their heart.
3:16   Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
3:17   Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
3:18   But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
