Matthew 13:13-15; Matthew 13:19; Matthew 13:23; Matthew 13:51; Matthew 15:10; Matthew 16:12; Matthew 17:13
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand .
And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith , By hearing ye shall hear , and shall not understand ; and seeing ye shall see , and shall not perceive :
For this people's heart is waxed gross , and their ears are dull of hearing , and their eyes they have closed ; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted , and I should heal them.
When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit , and bringeth forth , some an hundredfold , some sixty , some thirty.
Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear , and understand :
Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
