But though He had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not in Him,
that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: "Lord, who hath believed our report? And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?"
Therefore they could not believe, because as Isaiah said again:
"He hath blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them."
These things said Isaiah when he saw His glory and spoke of Him.
Nevertheless, among the chief rulers also, many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue;
for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Jesus cried out and said, "He that believeth in Me, believeth not in Me, but in Him that sent Me.
And he that seeth Me, seeth Him that sent Me.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth in Me should not abide in darkness.
And if any man hear My words and believe not, I judge him not; for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
He that rejecteth Me and receiveth not My words, hath One that judgeth him; the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day.
For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father who sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say and what I should speak.
And I know that His commandment is life everlasting. Whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me, so I speak."
