“They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.”
King James Version (KJV)
44:18 Not known - This shews that they have not the understanding of a man. For he - God. Not as if God did make men wicked; he only permits them so to be, and orders, and over - rules their wickedness to his own glorious ends.
