The People Still Refuse To Believe

39 They were not able to believe because Isaiah also said [Isa. 6:10], 40 "God has blinded their eyes [of understanding] and closed their minds. If He had not done so, they would [be able to] see with their eyes and understand with their minds and turn [to God] so He could heal them [spiritually]." 41 Isaiah had said these things because he saw the [coming] glory of Jesus, and [so] was speaking about Him.
