1: ἀνακαλύπτω
(Strong's #343 — Verb — anakalupto — an-ak-al-oop'-to )

"to uncover, unveil," used in 2 Corinthians 3:14 with the negative me, "not," is rendered "unlifted," RV, AV, "untaken away" (a paraphrase rather than translation); the RV marg., "remaineth, it not being revealed that it is done away," is not to be preferred. The best rendering seems to be, "the veil remains unlifted (for it is in Christ that it is done away)." Judaism does not recognize the vanishing of the glory of the Law as a means of life, under God's grace in Christ. In 2 Corinthians 3:18 the RV, "unveiled (face)" (AV, "open"), continues the metaphor of the veil ( 2 Corinthians 3:13-17 ), referring to hindrances to the perception of spiritual realities, hindrances removed in the unveiling.
