8 And might not be like their forefathers — a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that did not set their heart aright, and whose spirit was not faithful to God.
|Acts 28:27 |
27 Make the hearts of this people callous, and their ears dull of hearing, and close their eyes; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should repent, and be healed.' [To be healed means to become free of sin, cured from sin, healed from sin, released from the bondage of sin — which is the definition of salvation. See Footnote 1 of Mark 4 for why God makes hearts callous.]
