- And as Iesus passed by, he saw a man which was blinde from his birth.
- And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sinne, this man, or his parents, that he was borne blinde?
- Iesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the workes of God should be made manifest in him.
- I must worke the workes of him that sent me, while it is day: the night commeth when no man can worke.
- As long as 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 spettle, and he anointed the eyes of the blinde man with the clay,
- And said vnto him, Goe wash in the poole of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therfore, and washed, and came seeing.
- The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seene him, that he was blinde, said, Is not this he that sate and begged?
- Some said, This is hee: others said, Hee is like him: but hee sayd, I am hee.
- Therefore said they vnto him, How were thine eyes opened?
- He answered and said, A man that is called Iesus, made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said vnto me, Goe to the poole of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I receiued sight.
- Then said they vnto him, Where is he?
He said, I know not.
- They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
- And it was the Sabbath day when Iesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
- Then againe the Pharisees also asked him how he had receiued his sight.
He said vnto them, Hee put clay vpon mine eyes, and I washed, and doe see.
- Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because hee keepeth not the Sabbath day.
Others said, How can a man that is a sinner, doe such miracles?
and there was a diuision among them.
- They say vnto the blind man againe, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes?
He said, Hee is a Prophet.
- But the Iewes did not beleeue concerning him, that hee had bin blind, and receiued his sight, vntill they called the parents of him that had receiued his sight.
- And they asked them, saying, Is this your sonne, who ye say was borne blind?
how then doth he now see?
- His parents answered them, and said, We know that this is our sonne, and that he was borne blind:
- But by what meanes he now seeth, we know not, or who hath opened his eyes we know not: hee is of age, aske him, he shall speake for himselfe.
- These words spake his parents, because they feared the Iewes: for the Iewes had agreed already, that if any man did confesse that he was Christ, he should be put out of the Synagogue.
- Therefore said his parents, He is of age, aske him.
- Then againe called they the man that was blind, and said vnto him, Giue God the praise, we know that this man is a sinner.
- He answered, and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: One thing I know, that whereas I was blind, now I see.
- Then saide they to him againe, What did he to thee?
How opened hee thine eyes?
- He answered them, I haue told you already, and ye did not heare: wherfore would you heare it againe?
Will ye also be his disciples?
- Then they reuiled him, and said, Thou art his disciple, but we are Moses disciples.
- Wee know that God spake vnto Moses: as for this fellow, we knowe not from whence he is.
- The man answered, and said vnto them, Why herein is a marueilous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
- Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man bee a worshipper of God, and doth his will, him he heareth.
- Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was borne blinde:
- If this man were not of God, he could doe nothing.
- They answered, and saide vnto him, Thou wast altogether borne in sinnes, and doest thou teach vs?
And they cast him out.
- Iesus heard that they had cast him out;
and when hee had found him, he said vnto him, Doest thou beleeue on the Sonne of God?
- He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might beleeue on him?
- And Iesus said vnto him, Thou hast both seene him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
- And he said, Lord, I beleeue: and he worshipped him.
- And Iesus said, For iudgment I am come into this world, that they which see not, might see, and that they which see, might be made blind.
- And some of the Pharisees which were with him, heard these words, and saide vnto him, Are wee blinde also?
- Iesus saide vnto them, If yee were blind, ye should haue no sinne: but now ye say, We see, therfore your sinne remaineth.
