Hear and understand (Mt 15:10-15:10)

“Then Jesus

Called the crowd

To him.

He said to them.

‘Hear!

Understand!’”

 

Καὶ προσκαλεσάμενος τὸν ὄχλον εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Ἀκούετε καὶ συνίετε·

 

There is something similar to this in Mark, chapter 7:14.  Jesus turned from the Pharisees and his disciples to the crowds.  Somehow, Jesus called back the crowds to himself (Καὶ προσκαλεσάμενος τὸν ὄχλον).  He told them (εἶπεν αὐτοῖς) in the imperative to hear or listen and understand or perceive (Ἀκούετε καὶ συνίετε) what he was saying.
