"Go, and tell this people:
Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
And their ears heavy,
And shut their eyes;
Lest they see with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart,And return and be healed."
Houses are without people
And the land is utterly desolate,
And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
And it will again be subject to burning,
Like a terebinth or an oak
Whose stump remains when it is felled.
The holy seed is its stump."
