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 people’s 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.
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.
