13 Go and learn (A)what this means, (B)‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For (C)I came not to call the righteous, (D)but sinners.”
13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because (A)seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, (B)nor do they understand.
12 (A)so that
“they (B)may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand,lest they (C)should turn and be forgiven.”
16 (A)to one a fragrance from death to death, (B)to the other a fragrance from life to life. (C)Who is sufficient[a] for these things?
