Matthew 13: 14,15

13:14 In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says,

‘By hearing you will hear,
and will in no way understand;
Seeing you will see,
and will in no way perceive:
13:15 for this people’s heart has grown callous,
their ears are dull of hearing,
they have closed their eyes;
or else perhaps they might perceive with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their heart,
and should turn again;
and I would heal them.’

The Isaiah reference is to Isaiah 6:9-10:

6:9 He said, “Go, and tell this people,

‘You hear indeed,
but don’t understand;
and you see indeed,
but don’t perceive.’
6:10 Make the heart of this people fat.
Make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and turn again, and be healed.”
