- And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth.
- And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind?
- Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
- We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
- When I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
- When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay,
- and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent).
He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
- The neighbors therefore, and they that saw him aforetime, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
- Others said, It is he: others said, No, but he is like him.
He said, I am [he].
- They said therefore unto him, How then were thine eyes opened?
- He answered, The man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to Siloam, and wash: so I went away and washed, and I received sight.
- And they said unto him, Where is he?
He saith, I know not.
- They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
- Now it was the sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
- Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight.
And he said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and I see.
- Some therefore of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he keepeth not the sabbath.
But others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such signs?
And there was division among them.
- They say therefore unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, in that he opened thine eyes?
And he said, He is a prophet.
- The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight,
- and asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind?
How then doth he now see?
- His parents answered and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
- but how he now seeth, we know not;
or who opened his eyes, we know not: ask him;
he is of age;
he shall speak for himself.
- These things said his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man should confess him [to be] Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
- Therefore said his parents, He is of age;
- So they called a second time the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner.
- He therefore answered, Whether he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
- They said therefore unto him, What did he to thee?
How opened he thine eyes?
- He answered them, I told you even now, and ye did not hear;
wherefore would ye hear it again?
would ye also become his disciples?
- And they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple;
but we are disciples of Moses.
- We know that God hath spoken unto Moses: but as for this man, we know not whence he is.
- The man answered and said unto them, Why, herein is the marvel, that ye know not whence he is, and [yet] he opened mine eyes.
- We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth.
- Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a man born blind.
- If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.
- They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us?
And they cast him out.
- Jesus heard that they had cast him out;
and finding him, he said, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
- He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him?
- Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee.
- And he said, Lord, I believe.
And he worshipped him.
- And Jesus said, For judgment came I into this world, that they that see not may see;
and that they that see may become blind.
- Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said unto him, Are we also blind?
- Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye would have no sin: but now ye say, We see: your sin remaineth.
