Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
And he said, Go, and say to this people, You will go on hearing, but learning nothing; you will go on seeing, but without getting wiser.
Son of man, you are living among an uncontrolled people, who have eyes to see but see not, and ears for hearing but they do not give ear; for they are an uncontrolled people.
So that seeing they may see, and it will not be clear to them; and hearing it, they will not get the sense; for fear that they may be turned again to me and have forgiveness.
And he said, To you is given knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God; but to the others, they are given in stories, so that seeing, they may not see, and though they give hearing, the sense will not be clear to them.
For this reason they were unable to have belief, because Isaiah said again,
And they went away, for there was a division among them after Paul had said this one thing: Well did the Holy Spirit say by the prophet Isaiah to your fathers,
As it was said in the holy Writings, God gave them a spirit of sleep, eyes which might not see, and ears which have no hearing, to this day.
2 Corinthians 3:14
But their minds were made hard: for to this very day at the reading of the old agreement the same veil is still unlifted; though it is taken away in Christ.
And when a man or a woman has a disease on the head, or in the hair of the chin,
But even to this day the Lord has not given you a mind open to knowledge, or seeing eyes or hearing ears.
For they are a nation without wisdom; there is no sense in them.
The hearing ear and the seeing eye are equally the Lord's work.
Son of man, give out a dark saying, and make a comparison for the children of Israel,
And they had no care till the waters came and took them all away; so will be the coming of the Son of man.
