dark´li : The word occurs in 1 Corinthians 13:12 , "For now we see in a mirror, darkly," in translation of the words ἐν αἰνίγματι , en ainı́gmati , the Revised Version, margin "in a riddle." The contrast is with the "face to face" vision of Divine things in eternity. Earth's best knowledge is partial, obscure, enigmatic, a broken reflection of the complete truth ("broken lights of Thee").
