Read Matthew 13:13 Using Other Translations
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
That is why I use these parables, For they look, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.
