At [that] same time he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these [things] from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to young children. Yes, Father, for this was pleasing before you.
All [things] have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father and who the Father is except the Son, and [anyone] to whom the Son wants to reveal [him]."a23
And turning to the disciples, he said privately, "Blessed [are] the eyes that see [the things] which you see!
For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see [the things] which you see, and did not see [them],b and to hear [the things] which you hear, and did not hear [them]."c
