14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:

(A)‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand,
And seeing you will see and not (B)perceive;
15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears (C)are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have (D)closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I [a]should (E)heal them.’
