He said, “Go(A) and tell this people:

“‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding;
    be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’(B)

    make their ears dull
    and close their eyes.[a](D)
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,(E)
    understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”(F)
