Now, though Jesus had done so many signs before them, they did not believe on Him: that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake: "Lord, who hath believed our report? And to whom hath the Arm of the Lord been revealed?"
On this account they could not believe, because, Isaiah said again, "He hath blinded their eyes, And He hardened their heart; That they should not see with their eyes, And understand with their heart, And turn back, And I should heal them."
These things said Isaiah, because he saw His glory, and spake concerning Him. But the chief priests and the scribes and the leaders of the people were seeking to destroy Him, but could not find anything they could do; for all the people were hanging upon Him listening. Nevertheless, even among the rulers, many believed on Him; but on account of the Pharisees, they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: for they loved the glory that is of men, rather than the glory that is of God. And whenever evening came, He went forth out of the city.
