- And as he passed on, he saw a man blind from birth.
- And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this [man] or his parents, that he should be born blind?
- Jesus answered, Neither has this [man] sinned nor his parents, but that the works of God should be manifested in him.
- I must work the works of him that has sent me while it is day.
[The] night is coming, when no one can work.
- As long as I am in the world, I am [the] light of the world.
- Having said these things, he spat on the ground and made mud of the spittle, and put the mud, as ointment, on his eyes.
- And he said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, which is interpreted, Sent.
He went therefore and washed, and came seeing.
- The neighbours therefore, and those who used to see him before, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that was sitting and begging?
- Some said, It is he;
others said, No, but he is like him: *he* said, It is I.
- They said therefore to him, How have thine eyes been opened?
- He answered [and said], A man called Jesus made mud and anointed mine eyes, and said to me, Go to Siloam and wash: and having gone and washed, I saw.
- They said therefore to him, Where is he?
He says, I do not know.
- They bring him who was before blind to the Pharisees.
- Now it was sabbath when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes.
- The Pharisees therefore also again asked him how he received his sight.
And he said to them, He put mud upon mine eyes, and I washed, and I see.
- Some of the Pharisees therefore said, This man is not of God, for he does not keep the sabbath.
Others said, How can a sinful man perform such signs?
And there was a division among them.
- They say therefore again to the blind [man], What dost thou say of him, that he has opened thine eyes?
And he said, He is a prophet.
- The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him that he was blind and had received sight, until they had called the parents of him that had received sight.
- And they asked them saying, This is your son, of whom ye say that he was born blind: how then does he now see?
- His parents answered [them] and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
- but how he now sees we do not know, or who has opened his eyes we do not know.
*He* is of age: ask *him*;
*he* will speak concerning himself.
- His parents said these things because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had already agreed that if any one confessed him [to be the] Christ, he should be excommunicated from the synagogue.
- On this account his parents said, He is of age: ask *him*.
- They called therefore a second time the man who had been blind, and said to him, Give glory to God: we know that this man is sinful.
- He answered therefore, If he is sinful I know not.
One thing I know, that, being blind [before], now I see.
- And they said to him again, What did he do to thee?
how opened he thine eyes?
- He answered them, I told you already and ye did not hear: why do ye desire to hear again?
do ye also wish to become his disciples?
- They railed at him, and said, Thou art his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.
- We know that God spoke to Moses;
but [as to] this [man], we know not whence he is.
- The man answered and said to them, Now in this is a wonderful thing, that *ye* do not know whence he is, and he has opened mine eyes.
- [But] we know that God does not hear sinners;
but if any one be God-fearing and do his will, him he hears.
- Since time was, it has not been heard that any one opened the eyes of one born blind.
- If this [man] were not of God he would be able to do nothing.
- They answered and said to him, Thou hast been wholly born in sins, and thou teachest us?
And they cast him out.
- Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him, he said to him, Thou, dost thou believe on the Son of God?
- He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him?
- And Jesus said to him, Thou hast both seen him, and he that speaks with thee is he.
- And he said, I believe, Lord: and he did him homage.
- And Jesus said, For judgment am I come into this world, that they which see not may see, and they which see may become blind.
- And [some] of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and they said to him, Are we blind also?
- Jesus said to them, If ye were blind ye would not have sin;
but now ye say, We see, your sin remains.
