Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach.
It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask,
"Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?"
Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask,
"Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?"
No, the word is very near you;
it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.
--- Deuteronomy 30:11-14
Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world,
so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind."
Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked,
"What? Are we blind too?"
Jesus said, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin;
but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.
--- John 9:39-41
"Come now, let us reason together,"
says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
If you are willing and obedient,
you will eat the best from the land;
but if you resist and rebel,
you will be devoured by the sword."
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
--- Isaiah 1:18-20
