“Listen, you deaf ones! Take notice, 1 you blind ones!
Then blind eyes will open, deaf ears will hear.
Bring out the people who are blind, even though they have eyes, those who are deaf, even though they have ears!
You must not curse a deaf person or put a stumbling block in front of a blind person. 1 You must fear 2 your God; I am the Lord.
But I am like a deaf man – I hear nothing; I am like a mute who cannot speak. 1
Their venom is like that of a snake, 1 like a deaf serpent 2 that does not hear, 3
At that time 1 the deaf will be able to hear words read from a scroll, and the eyes of the blind will be able to see through deep darkness. 2
My servant is truly blind, my messenger is truly deaf. My covenant partner, 1 the servant of the Lord, is truly blind. 2
The Lord said to him, “Who gave 1 a mouth to man, or who makes a person mute or deaf or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 2
