King James Version

For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
New King James Version

New International Version

For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise, they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
The Amplified Bible

For this nation’s heart has grown gross (fat and dull), and their eyes they have tightly closed, lest they see and perceive with their eyes, and hear and comprehend the sense with their ears, and grasp and understand with their heart, and turn and I should heal them.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

for the heart of this people was rendered dull and callous, and with their ears they heard with difficulty, and their eyes they shut lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and with their ears hear, and with their heart understand, and turn back, and I should heal them.
Phillips’ Modern English

Williams’ Language of the People

For this people’s soul has grown dull, and with their ears they can scarcely hear, and they have shut tight their eyes, so that they will never see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn to me, so that I may cure them!”
