Isaiah 6:9-10; Matthew 13:13

And he said, Go, and say to this people:

dKeep on hearing,1 but do not understand;

keep on seeing,2 but do not perceive.

10  eMake the heart of this people fdull,3

and their ears heavy,

and blind their eyes;

glest they see with their eyes,

and hear with their ears,

and understand with their hearts,

and turn and be healed.

13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because bseeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, cnor do they understand.
