Isaiah 6:9–12

And he said, Go, and tell this people,

tHear ye ||indeed, but understand not;

And see ye indeed, but perceive not.

10  uMake the heart of this people fat,

And make their ears heavy, and vshut their eyes;

wLest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,

And understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

11  Then said I, xLord, how long? And he answered,

Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant,

And the houses without man,

And the land be utterly desolate,

12  And ythe Lord have removed men far away,

And there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
