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:
Then said be - Go and say unto this people, - Hear on but do not discern, See on but do not perceive:
Son of man. In the midst of a perverse house, dost thou dwell, - Who have eyes to see - and have not seen. Ears have they to hear - and have no heard, For a perverse house, they are.
They may surely look and yet not see, and surely hear and yet not understand, lest once they should return and it be forgiven them.
And, he, said - Unto you, hath it been given, to get to know the sacred secrets of the kingdom of God; but, unto the rest, in parables, - in order that, seeing, they may not see, and, hearing, they may not understand.
On this account, they could not believe, because, again, said Isaiah -
and, not being, agreed, among themselves, they began to leave, - Paul having said one thing - Well, did, the Holy Spirit, speak through Isaiah the prophet, unto your fathers,
Even as it is written - God hath given unto them a spirit of stupor, - eyes not to see, and ears not to hear, - until this very day;
2 Corinthians 3:14
But their thoughts were turned into stone: for, until this very day, the same veil, upon the reading of the old covenant, abideth, not to be removed, because, in Christ, it is to be done away;
And, when there cometh to be in, any man or woman, a spot, - in the head or in the beard,
yet hath Yahweh not given onto you a heart to know, or eyes to see or ears to hear, - until this day.
For a nation of vanished sagacity, they are, - And there is in them no understanding.
The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, Yahweh hath made them, both.
Son of man Put thou forth a riddle And speak thou a parable,- Unto the house of Israel:
And they observed not, until the flood came and took away all together, so, will be, the presence of the Son of Man.
