Belief and Unbelief Among the Jews

37 Even after Jesus had performed so many signsd in their presence, they still would not believe in him. 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet:

“Lord, who has believed our message

and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”h e

39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:

40 “He has blinded their eyes

and hardened their hearts,

so they can neither see with their eyes,

nor understand with their hearts,

nor turn—and I would heal them.”i f

41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ gloryg and spoke about him.h

42 Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him.i But because of the Phariseesj they would not openly acknowledge their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue;k 43 for they loved human praisel more than praise from God.m
