42 Revised Standard Version Passage

18Hear, you deaf;
and look, you blind,
that you may see!
Israel's failure to learn. Is.42.18-25
19Who is blind but my servant,
or deaf as my messenger whom I send?
Who is blind as my dedicated one,
or blind as the servant of the LORD?
 
20He sees Heb: you see many things, but does not observe them;
his ears are open, but he does not hear.
 
21The LORD was pleased, for his righteousness' sake,
to magnify his law and make it glorious.
 
22But this is a people robbed and plundered,
they are all of them trapped in holes
and hidden in prisons;
they have become a prey with none to rescue,
a spoil with none to say, "Restore!"
 
23Who among you will give ear to this,
will attend and listen for the time to come?
 
24Who gave up Jacob to the spoiler,
and Israel to the robbers?
Was it not the LORD, against whom we have sinned,
in whose ways they would not walk,
and whose law they would not obey?
 
25So he poured upon him the heat of his anger
and the might of battle;
it set him on fire round about, but he did not understand;
it burned him, but he did not take it to heart.
