Israel’s Failure to Hear and See18 Hear, you deaf,
and look, you blind, that you may see!
19Who is blind but my servant,
or deaf as my messenger whom I send?
Who is blind as my dedicated one ▼
▼Or as the one at peace with me
or blind as the servant of the Lord?
20 b He sees many things, but does not observe them;
c his ears are open, but he does not hear.
21The Lord was pleased, for his righteousness’ sake,
to magnify his law and make it glorious.
22But this is a people plundered and looted;
they are all of them trapped in holes
d and hidden in prisons;
they have become plunder with none to rescue,
spoil with none to say, “Restore!”
23Who among you will give ear to this,
will attend and listen for the time to come?
