Eye hath not seen nor ear heard the things which God hath prepared for them that love him, 1 Cor. 2:9 (D&C 76:10). The devil whispers in their ears, 2 Ne. 28:22. Open your ears that ye may hear, Mosiah 2:9 (3 Ne. 11:5). I was called many times, and I would not hear, Alma 10:6. Give ear to my words, Alma 36:1 (Alma 38:1; D&C 58:1).
