Then God asked him, "Who gives a person a mouth? Who makes him unable to speak, or deaf, or able to see, or blind, or lame? Is it not I, the LORD?
The ear that hears and the eye that sees the LORD surely made them both.
Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village. He spit into his eyes, placed his hands on him, and asked him, "Do you see anything?"
How can you say to your brother, "Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you don't see the beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you'll see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
Then turning to his disciples in private, he told them, "How blessed are the eyes that see what you see!
"With them the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says: "You will listen and listen but never understand. You will look and look but never comprehend,
He said, "Go to this people and say, "You will listen and listen but never understand, and you will look and look but never see!
So he said, "You have been given knowledge about the secrets of the kingdom of God. But to others they are given in parables, so that "they might look but not see, and they might listen but not understand.'"
For we were saved with this hope in mind. Now a hope that can be observed is not really hope, for who hopes for what can be seen?
By faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible.
Therefore, I advise you to buy from me gold purified in fire so you may be rich, white clothes to wear so your shameful nakedness won't show, and ointment to put on your eyes so you may see.
Let your eyes look directly ahead; fix your gaze straight in front of you.
It is better to focus on what you can see than to meander after your self-interest; this also is pointless and a chasing after wind.
