    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12

    ¶ Así que, teniendo tal esperanza, hablamos con mucha confianza;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 3:12

    Verse 12. Seeing-we have such
    hope] Such glorious prospects as those blessings which the Gospel sets before us, producing such confidence, as the fulfillment of so many promises has already done, that God will still continue to work for us and by us; We use great plainness of speech] pollh parrhsia crwmeqa? We speak not only with all confidence, but with all imaginable plainness; keeping back nothing; disguising nothing; concealing nothing: and here we differ greatly from the Jewish doctors, and from the Gentile philosophers, who affect obscurity, and endeavour, by figures, metaphors, and allegories, to hide every thing from the vulgar. But we wish that all may hear; and we speak so that all may understand.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Seeing then that we have such
    hope , etc..] Having this confidence, and being fully persuaded that God has made us able and sufficient ministers of the Gospel, has called and qualified us for such service; and since we have such a ministry committed to us, which so much exceeds in glory the ministry of Moses, a ministry not of death and condemnation, but of the Spirit and of righteousness; not which is abolished and done away, but which does and will remain, in spite of all the opposition of hell and earth: we use great plainness of speech ; plain and intelligible words, not ambiguous ones: or boldness; we are not afraid of men nor devils; we are not terrified by menaces, stripes, imprisonment, and death itself: or freedom of speech; we speak out all our mind, which is the mind of Christ; we declare the whole counsel of God, hide and conceal nothing that may be profitable to the churches; we are not to be awed by the terror, or drawn by the flatteries of men to cover the truth; we speak it out plainly, clearly, with all evidence and perspicuity. The apostle from hence passes on to observe another difference between the law and the Gospel, namely, the obscurity of the one, and the clearness of the other.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-18 - It is the
    duty of the ministers of the gospel to use great plainness or clearness, of speech. The Old Testament believers had only cloud and passing glimpses of that glorious Saviour, and unbelievers looke no further than to the outward institution. But the great precepts of the gospel, believe, love, obey, are truths stated as clearly a possible. And the whole doctrine of Christ crucified, is made as plai as human language can make it. Those who lived under the law, had veil upon their hearts. This veil is taken away by the doctrines of the Bible about Christ. When any person is converted to God, then the vei of ignorance is taken away. The condition of those who enjoy an believe the gospel is happy, for the heart is set at liberty to run the ways of God's commandments. They have light, and with open face the behold the glory of the Lord. Christians should prize and improve thes privileges. We should not rest contented without knowing the transforming power of the gospel, by the working of the Spirit bringing us to seek to be like the temper and tendency of the glorious gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and into union with Him We behold Christ, as in the glass of his word; and as the reflectio from a mirror causes the face to shine, the faces of Christians shin also __________________________________________________________________

    12. Plainness (parjrJhsia,). Rev.,
    boldness. See on openly, John vii. 13; confidence, 1 John ii. 28; freely, Acts ii. 29. The contrast is with the dissembling with which his adversaries charged him.
