Isaiah 6:9-10

9 He said, “Go and tell this people: “ ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. [a]Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”
