15 Make this peoples' heart callous, and their ears dull of hearing, and close their [spiritual] eyes; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and repent, and be healed.'1 [See Footnote 1 of Mark 4 for why Jesus speaks in parables to prevent certain people from hearing the meaning of his teachings and gospel.]
69 The proud have forged a lie against me, but I will keep your precepts with my whole heart.
70 Their heart is as fat as grease, but I delight in your law.
|Isaiah 6:10 |
10 Make the hearts of this people calloused, and shut their ears, and close their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and repent and be healed."1 [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.]
