John 13:

A) 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables:

B) a) because they seeing see not;

b and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

C 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith,

D) By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand;

E) and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

F) 15 For this peoples heart is waxed gross,

G) and their ears are dull of hearing,

H) and their eyes they have closed;

H) lest at any time they should see with their eyes,

G) and hear with their ears,

F) and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

E) 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see:

D) and your ears, for they hear.

C) 17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men

B) a) have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them;

b) and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

A) 18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.


Isaiah 6:

9 And he said, Go, and tell this people,

A) a) Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

b) 10 Make the heart of this people fat,

B) and make their ears heavy,

C) and shut their eyes;

C) lest they see with their eyes,

B) and hear with their ears,

A) a) and understand with

b) their heart, and convert, and be healed.
