Jeremiah 5:21; Ezekiel 12:2; Isaiah 42:18-19; Isaiah 43:8; Matthew 13:13

21  Hear this, iO foolish and senseless people,

jwho have eyes, but see not,

who have ears, but hear not.


jSon of man, you dwell in the midst of ka rebellious house, lwho have eyes to see, but see not, who have ears to hear, but hear not, for they are ka rebellious house.


Israel's Failure to Hear and See

18  Hear, you deaf,

and look, you blind, that you may see!

19  Who is blind but my servant,

or deaf as my messenger whom I send?

Who is blind as my dedicated one,1

or blind as the servant of the Lord?


Bring out xthe people who are blind, yet have eyes,

who are deaf, yet have ears!


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.
