Bible verses about "hearing" | Moffatt

Matthew 13:13-15

13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because for all their seeing they do not see and for all their hearing they do not hear or understand. 14 In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled: You will hear and hear but never understand, you will see and see but never perceive. 15 For the heart of this people is obtuse, their ears are heavy of hearing, their eyes they have closed, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they understand with their heart and turn again, and I cure them.

Mark 4:20

20 As for those who were sown 'on good soil,' these are the people who listen to the word and take it in and bear fruit at the rate of thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold."

Mark 4:24

24 Also he said to them, "Take care what you hear; the measure you deal out to others will be dealt out to yourselves, and you will receive extra.

Luke 8:18

18 So take care how you listen; for he who has, to him shall more be given, while as for him who has not, from him shall be taken even what he thinks he has."

Hebrews 4:2

2 For we have had the good news as well as they; only, the message they heard was of no use to them, because it did not meet with faith in the hearers.

James 1:19-27

19 Be sure of that, my beloved brothers. Let everyone be quick to listen, slow to talk, slow to be angry — 20 for human anger does not promote divine righteousness; 21 so clear away all the foul rank growth of malice, and make a soil of modesty for the Word which roots itself inwardly with power to save your souls. 22 Act on the Word, instead of merely listening to it and deluding yourselves. 23 For whoever listens and does nothing, is like a man who glances at his natural face in a mirror; 24 he glances at himself, goes off, and at once forgets what he was like. 25 Whereas he who gazes into the faultless law of freedom and remains in that position, proving himself to be no forgetful listener but an active agent, he will be blessed in his activity. 26 Whoever considers he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue, but deceives his own heart, his religion is futile. 27 Pure, unsoiled religion in the judgment of God the Father means this: to care for orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself from the stain of the world.

Luke 8:15

15 As for the seed in the good soil, that means those who hear and hold fast the word in a good and sound heart and so bear fruit stedfastly.

Galatians 3:2

2 I simply want to ask you one thing: did you receive the Spirit by doing what the Law commands or by believing the gospel message?

Hebrews 3:7-8

7 Therefore, as the holy Spirit says, To-day, when you hear his voice, 8 harden not your hearts as at the Provocation, on the day of the Temptation in the desert,

Matthew 11:15

15 He who has an ear, let him listen to this.
