then you will understand the fear of Yahweh,
and find the knowledge of God.

The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious.
I have not turned back.
-Isaiah 50:4-5, WEB-BE
Guard your steps when you go to God’s house; for to draw near to listen is better than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they don’t know that they do evil. Don’t be rash with your mouth, and don’t let your heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and you on earth. Therefore let your words be few. For as a dream comes with a multitude of cares, so a fool’s speech with a multitude of words. – Ecclesiastes 5:1-3, WEB-BE

By hearing you will hear,
and will in no way understand;
Seeing you will see,
and will in no way perceive:
for this people’s heart has grown callous,
their ears are dull of hearing,
they have closed their eyes;
or else perhaps they might perceive with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their heart,
and would turn again;
and I would heal them.’
-Matthew 13:14-15, WEB-BE
