Jonathan Robie suggests the following translation:
>Mark 4:23 "If anyone has ears to hear with, listen up!"
I like this, and agree about the ironic humour. I felt sure that I
had heard a translation like this somewhere, and have looked around,
but all I can find is something a bit like it in the Good News Bible
(not always the ideal place to go to when looking for help with
'Listen, then, if you have ears!'
But this of course loses something of EI TIS . . . by
bringing in 'you'. So Jonathan's translation is preferable.
