26 "Go to this people and say, You will indeed listen, but never understand, and you will indeed look, but never perceive. 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 this people's heart has grown dull, and their ears are hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes; so that they might not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn— and I would 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 Let it be known to you then that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen." 28 "Therefore I want you to know that God's salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!"
