Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 13:14

_ _ And in them is fulfilled — rather, “is fulfilling,” or “is receiving its fulfillment.”

_ _ the prophecy of Esaias, which saith — (Isaiah 6:9, Isaiah 6:10 — here quoted according to the Septuagint).

_ _ By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand, etc. — They were thus judicially sealed up under the darkness and obduracy which they deliberately preferred to the light and healing which Jesus brought nigh to them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 13:1-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 13:14

Hearing ye will hear, but in nowise understand — That is, Ye will surely hear. All possible means will be given you: yet they will profit you nothing; because your heart is sensual, stupid, and insensible; your spiritual senses are shut up; yea, you have closed your eyes against the light; as being unwilling to understand the things of God, and afraid, not desirous that he should heal you. Isaiah 6:9; John 12:40; Acts 28:26.
