25 And when they disagreed with one another, they began leaving after Paul said one parting statement: “The Holy Spirit rightly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your fathers, 26 saying,

(A)Go to this people and say,
[a](B)You will keep on hearing, and will not understand;
And [b]you will keep on seeing, and will not perceive;
27 (C)For the hearts of this people have become [c]insensitive,
And with their ears they [d]hardly hear,
And they have closed their eyes;
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart and return,
And I would heal them.”’
