10 When He was alone, the Twelve and the others who were about Him requested Him to explain His figurative language. 11 "To you," He replied, "has been entrusted the secret truth concerning the Kingdom of God; but to those others outside your number all this is spoken in figurative language; 12 that "'They may look and look but not see, and listen and listen but not understand, lest perchance they should return and be pardoned.'"
