36 While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become (A)sons of light.”

The Unbelief of the People

When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them. 37 Though he had done so many signs before them, they still did not believe in him, 38 (B)so that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:

(C)“Lord, who has believed what he heard from us,
    and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

39 Therefore they (D)could not believe. For again Isaiah said,

40 (E)“He has blinded their eyes
    and (F)hardened their heart,
lest they see with their eyes,
    and understand with their heart, and turn,
    and I would heal them.”

41 Isaiah said these things because (G)he saw his glory and (H)spoke of him. 42 Nevertheless, (I)many even of the authorities believed in him, but (J)for fear of the Pharisees they did not (K)confess it, so that they would not be (L)put out of the synagogue; 43 (M)for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God.
