The veil is removed (2 Cor. 3:16)

“When you turn

To the Lord,

The veil is removed.”

ἡνίκα δὲ ἐὰν ἐπιστρέψῃ πρὸς Κύριον, περιαιρεῖται τὸ κάλυμμα.

Paul said that when you turn (ἡνίκα δὲ ἐὰν ἐπιστρέψῃ) to the Lord (πρὸς Κύριον), the veil (τὸ κάλυμμα) is removed or taken away (περιαιρεῖται).  Only this Corinthian letter used this word ἡνίκα, that means at which time, when, or whenever, and the word κάλυμμα, that means a covering of head and face, or a veil.  Paul continued with the comparison of the veil that Moses wore when talking to the Israelites.  He took it off when he was talking with the Lord, Yahweh.  So too, now, when they turn to the Lord, the veil will be removed or taken away, so that they will understand what is going on.  When you understand and turn to Jesus, the veil will be removed.  Do you still have a veil that hides Jesus Christ from you?
