    King James Bible - Acts 28:27

    For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    World English Bible

    For this people's
    heart has grown callous. Their ears are dull of hearing. Their eyes they have closed. Lest they should see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their heart, and would turn again, and I would heal them.'

    Douay-Rheims - Acts 28:27

    For the
    heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears have they heard heavily, and their eyes they have shut; lest perhaps they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For the
    heart of this people is become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 28:27

    porque el corazn de este pueblo se ha engrosado, y de los oídos oyeron pesadamente, y sus ojos taparon; para que no vean con los ojos, y oigan con los oídos, y entiendan de corazn, y se conviertan, y yo los sane.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. For the
    heart of this people is waxed gross , etc.] Or fat; stupefied with notions of carnal and temporal things, and become hardened against, and unsusceptible of, divine and spiritual things: and their ears are dull of hearing ; the Gospel, and its joyful sound; to which they stop their cars, as the deaf adder to the voice of the charmer: and their eyes have they closed ; and wilfully shut, against all evidence from facts, miracles, prophecies, and preaching: lest they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears , and understand with [their] heart, and should be converted ; that is, see the evidence of miracles, take in the truth of doctrine, understand the meaning of prophecy, and so be turned from darkness, ignorance, and unbelief, to light, knowledge, and faith: and I should heal them ; or have mercy on them, as the Ethiopic version renders it; that is, forgive their sins: hearing the Gospel preached, is the ordinary means of understanding spiritual things; and the understanding being enlightened through the ministry of the word, by the Spirit of God, whereby the sinner sees his lost state by nature, his impurity and impotency, the danger he is in, and the destruction that is imminent on him, and he is liable to, and also his need of Christ, and salvation by him; this issues in conversion, in the turning of a man from the evil of his ways, to believe in Christ, walk on in him, and worthy of him; when he is healed of the diseases of his soul, which are many, are natural, and hereditary, mortal and incurable, but by Christ the great physician; by whose stripes, wounds, and blood, there is healing, that is, pardon; for healing diseases, and pardoning iniquities, are one and the same; (see <19A303> Psalm 103:3); and at conversion, when a soul is enlightened, and made sensible of the evil of sin, and that there is no cure of this disease, by anything that he or any creature can do, or prescribe for him, but only by the blood of Christ; a discovery of pardoning grace is made unto him; and he is made whole, and cured of every disease that attended him; from whence spring joy, peace, and comfort to him:, but when through hearing the word, the understanding is not enlightened, and conversion does not follow upon it, there is no healing of the disease of sin, no pardon applied; and consequently such must be in a most deplorable and miserable condition, as all ignorant hearers and despisers of the Gospel are; (see Gill on Matthew 13:14; see Gill on Matthew 13:15; Ver. 28. Be it known therefore unto you, etc.] Unbelievers and despisers, take this along with you at parting, and do not say you were never acquainted with it: that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles; meaning the Gospel, which is a publication and declaration of that salvation, which God contrived from all eternity; made provision for, and secured in the covenant of grace; which he appointed, called, and sent Christ to effect, in the fulness of time; and which he has accomplished, by his obedience, sufferings, and death; even a full, complete, spiritual, and eternal salvation, from sin, Satan, the world, the curse of the law, and eternal death; that that Gospel which proclaims this, and is the power of God unto it, to them that believe, is sent to the Gentile world, by God himself, who has ordered his ministers to turn to them, upon the rejection of it by the Jews: and [that] they will hear it: and do understand it and obey it, believe it and profess it : this the apostle could assert upon his own knowledge, who had preached it in many nations of the world; and could testify how gladly they heard it, with what pleasure they received it, how readily they obeyed it, and how cheerfully they professed it, and how steadily they held it; though the Jews despised and put it away from them, judging themselves unworthy of everlasting life: this the apostle says, reproaching them with their folly, stupidity, and infidelity; when the Gentiles, which knew not God, received the Gospel and are saved.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-31 -
    Paul persuaded the Jews concerning Jesus. Some were wrought upon by the word, and others hardened; some received the light, and others shu their eyes against it. And the same has always been the effect of the gospel. Paul parted with them, observing that the Holy Ghost had wel described their state. Let all that hear the gospel, and do not hee it, tremble at their doom; for who shall heal them, if God does not The Jews had afterwards much reasoning among themselves. Many have great reasoning, who do not reason aright. They find fault with on another's opinions, yet will not yield to truth. Nor will men' reasoning among themselves convince them, without the grace of God to open their understandings. While we mourn on account of such despisers we should rejoice that the salvation of God is sent to others, who wil receive it; and if we are of that number, we should be thankful to Hi who hath made us to differ. The apostle kept to his principle, to know and preach nothing but Christ and him crucified. Christians, when tempted from their main business, should bring themselves back with this question, What does this concern the Lord Jesus? What tendency ha it to bring us to him, and to keep us walking in him? The apostl preached not himself, but Christ, and he was not ashamed of the gospe of Christ. Though Paul was placed in a very narrow opportunity for being useful, he was not disturbed in it. Though it was not a wide doo that was opened to him, yet no man was suffered to shut it; and to man it was an effectual door, so that there were saints even in Nero' household, Php 4:22. We learn also from Php 1:13, how God overrule Paul's imprisonment for the furtherance of the gospel. And not the residents at Rome only, but all the church of Christ, to the presen day, and in the most remote corner of the globe, have abundant reaso to bless God, that during the most mature period of his Christian lif and experience, he was detained a prisoner. It was from his prison probably chained hand to hand to the soldier who kept him, that the apostle wrote the epistles to the Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Hebrews; epistles showing, perhaps more than any others, the Christian love with which his heart overflowed, and the Christia experience with which his soul was filled. The believer of the presen time may have less of triumph, and less of heavenly joy, than the apostle, but every follower of the same Saviour, is equally sure of safety and peace at the last. Let us seek to live more and more in the love of the Saviour; to labour to glorify Him by every action of ou lives; and we shall assuredly, by his strength, be among the number of those who now overcome our enemies; and by his free grace and mercy, be hereafter among the blessed company who shall sit with Him upon his throne, even as He also has overcome, and is sitting on his Father' throne, at God's right hand for evermore __________________________________________________________________
