John 12:40; Acts 28:26-27; Isaiah 6:9-10

40  rHe has blinded their eyes

and shardened their heart,

lest they see with their eyes,

and understand with their heart, and turn,

and I would heal them.


26  uGo to this people, and say,

vYou will indeed hear but never understand,

and you will indeed see but never perceive.

27  wFor this people's heart has grown dull,

and with their ears they can barely hear,

and their eyes they have closed;

lest they should see with their eyes

and hear with their ears

and understand with their heart

and xturn, and I would heal them.


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.
