Dear friends:
I have a question about 2Cor 3:13:
KAI OU KAQAPER MWUSHS ENTIQEI KALUMMA EPI TO PROSWPON AUTOU PROS TO MH
ATENISAI TOUS hUIOUS ISRAHL...
And are not like Moses, who put a veil on his face, so that the children
of Israel might not see...
Does PROS really designates purpose here? Or may it mean a reason?
Because it is written in verse 7: 
"But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stones was
glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the
face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was to
be done away with," 
It says people could not "steadfastly behold" at Moses' face, and
wouldn't it be a good reason for Moses' putting the veil, "because the
children of Israel might not see..."?
Is it a probability?
Thanks.
Dmitriy Reznik
