Parallel VersesNew American Standard Bible
so that WHILE SEEING, THEY MAY SEE AND NOT PERCEIVE, AND WHILE HEARING, THEY MAY HEAR AND NOT UNDERSTAND, OTHERWISE THEY MIGHT RETURN AND BE FORGIVEN."
King James Bible
That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
Holman Christian Standard Bible
so that they may look and look, yet not perceive; they may listen and listen, yet not understand; otherwise, they might turn back-- and be forgiven."
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
That seeing. Rather, as [hina] frequently denotes, 'So that seeing they see, and do not perceive, and hearing they hear, and do not understand,' etc. The expression appears to be proverbial; and relates to those who might see what they now overlook through inattention and folly. See the parallel texts.
