    Mark 8:16-17Amplified Bible (AMP)16 They began discussing this with one another, saying,
    It is because we have no bread [that He said this].”

     17 Jesus, aware of this [discussion], said to them,
    “Why are you discussing [the fact] that you have no bread?
     Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened?

    18 Though you have eyes, do you not see? And though you have ears,
     do you not hear and listen [to what I have said]? And do you not remember,

     19 when I broke the five loaves for the five thousand,
    how many baskets full of broken pieces you picked up?”
    They answered, “Twelve.”

    John 8:43-44Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

    43 Why don’t you understand what I’m saying?
    Because you can’t bear to listen to my message.

     44 You belong to your father, Satan, and you want to carry out your father’s desires.
    From the start he was a murderer, and he has never stood by the truth,
    because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie,
    he is speaking in character; because he is a liar —
    indeed, the inventor of the lie!

    Luke 6:43-45New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
    43 No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit;
     44 for each tree is known by its own fruit. Figs are not gathered from thorns,
    nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush.

     45 The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good,
    and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil;
    for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.
