Isaiah 42:18

Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
Read Chapter 42

Basil the Great

AD 379
It is evident, indeed, that some possess ears better able to hear the words of God. But to those who do not have those ears, what does he say? “Hear, you deaf, and, you blind, behold.” Also, “I opened my mouth and panted,” and “You have broken the teeth of sinners.” All these things were said in reference to the faculties that render service for spiritual food and spiritual doctrine. - "Homilies on the Psalms 16.13. (Psalm 33)"

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Deaf Jews, who would not listen to the prophets, ver. 19. (Calmet)

John Cassian

AD 435
“Who is deaf but my servant? And who is blind but the one to whom I have sent my messengers?” And so that no one would be able to ascribe this blindness of theirs to nature and not to will, he says elsewhere, “Lead out the people who are blind and who have eyes, who are deaf and who have ears.” And again he says, “You who have eyes and do not see, and ears and do not hear.” - "Conference 13.12.3–4"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
