ISV(i) 23 So they set a day to meet with Paul and came out in large numbers to see him where he was staying. From morning until evening he continued to explain the kingdom of God to them, trying to convince them about Jesus from the law of Moses and the Prophets. 24 Some of them were convinced by what he said, but others wouldn't believe. 25 They disagreed with one another as they were leaving, so Paul added this statement: "The Holy Spirit was so right when he spoke to your ancestors through the prophet Isaiah! 26 He said, 'Go to this people and say, "You will listen and listen but never understand, and you will look and look but never see! 27 For this people's minds have become stupid, and their ears can barely hear, and they have shut their eyes so that they may never see with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn and let me heal them."' 28 You must understand that this message about God's salvation has been sent to the gentiles, and they will listen."
