Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 3:10

_ _ For even the ministration of condemnation, the law, 2 Corinthians 3:7 (which has been glorified at Sinai in Moses’ person), has now (English Version translates less fitly, “was made ... had”) lost its glory in this respect by reason of the surpassing glory (of the Gospel): as the light of the stars and moon fades in the presence of the sun.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 3:6-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 3:10

It hath no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excelleth — That is, none in comparison of this more excellent glory. The greater light swallows up the less.
