37 But though He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe into Him,
38 That the word of the prophet Isaiah which he said might be fulfilled, a"Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the 1arm of the Lord been revealed?''

43 For they loved the aglory of men more than the aglory of God.
