5 Not that we are sufficient by ourselves to think any thing as from ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] from God;
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.
7 But if the ministration of death, written [and] engraven on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which [glory] was to be done away;
8 How shall not the ministration of the Spirit be rather glorious?
9 For if the ministration of condemnation [was] glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
