New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
25 But after they had argued back and forth among themselves, they left with this final word from Paul: "The Holy Spirit was right when he said to our ancestors through Isaiah the prophet, 25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: "The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your forefathers when he said through Isaiah the prophet:
26 'Go and say to my people, You will hear my words, but you will not understand; you will see what I do, but you will not perceive its meaning. 26 " 'Go to this people and say, "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving."
27 For the hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes -- so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to me and let me heal them.' 27 For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.'
28 So I want you to realize that this salvation from God is also available to the Gentiles, and they will accept it." 28 "Therefore I want you to know that God's salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!"
