but Yahweh has not given you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, to this day.
He said to them, "Don't you understand this parable? How will you understand all of the parables?
for they hadn't understood about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.
Jesus, perceiving it, said to them, "Why do you reason that it's because you have no bread? Don't you perceive yet, neither understand? Is your heart still hardened?
But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God.
But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one.
If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.
This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment;
Yes most assuredly, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ
that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and gaining all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ,
seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue;
For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful to the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
