2 I will open my mouth with a parable;(A) I will utter hidden things, things from of old—
9 “Son of man, did not the Israelites, that rebellious people, ask you, ‘What are you doing?’(A)
13 This is why I speak to them in parables:
“Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.(A)
25 “Though I have been speaking figuratively,(A) a time is coming(B) when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.
