21 "Hear now this, O foolish people, who are without understanding; who have eyes, and see not; who have ears, and hear not.
2 "Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, who have eyes to see and see not; they have ears to hear and hear not; for they are a rebellious house.
|Matthew 13:15 |
15 Make this peoples' heart callous, and their ears dull of hearing, and close their [spiritual] eyes; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and repent, and be healed.'1 [See Footnote 1 of Mark 4 for why Jesus speaks in parables to prevent certain people from hearing the meaning of his teachings and gospel.]
