Be stunned and amazed,1 blind yourselves and be sightless;2 be drunk,3 but not from wine,4 stagger,5 but not from beer.
The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep:6 He has sealed your eyes7 (the prophets);8 he has covered your heads (the seers).911
For you this whole vision10 is nothing but words sealed11 in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say to him, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I can't; it is sealed."
Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I don't know how to read."
