“Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:43 Ye cannot - Such is your stubbornness and pride, hear - Receive, obey my word. Not being desirous to do my will, ye cannot understand my doctrine, #John 7:17|.
Joh 8:43 Ye cannot hear my word. Cannot receive it because Satan has your hearts, and is your father.
