Matthew 13:14–15; Mark 4:12; Luke 8:10

14 Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:

dYou will indeed hear but never understand,

and you will indeed see but never perceive.

15  For this people's heart has grown dull,

and with their ears ethey can barely hear,

and ftheir eyes they have closed,

lest they should see with their eyes

and hear with their ears

and gunderstand with their heart

and hturn, and I would heal them.

12 iso that

they jmay indeed see but not perceive,

and may indeed hear but not understand,

lest they kshould turn and be forgiven.

10 he said, zTo you it has been given to know athe secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so bthat seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.
