9 And passing along he saw a man blind from birth.
2 And his disciples questioned him, saying—Rabbi! who sinned, this man or his parents That blind he should be born?
3 Jesus answered—Neither this man sinned nor his parents; But . . . that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
4 We must needs be working the works of him that sent me while it is day: There cometh a night, when no one can work.
5 Whensoever I may be in the world I am the light of the world.
6 These things having said, he spat on the ground and made clay with the spittle, and laid the clay upon his eyes;
7 and said unto him—Withdraw! wash in the pool of Siloam,—which is to be translated Sent. He went away therefore and washed, and came seeing.
8 The neighbours therefore and they who used to observe him aforetime—that he was a beggar were saying—Is not this he that used to sit and beg?
9 Others were saying—’Tis the same. Others were saying—Nay! but he is like him. He was saying—I am he.
10 So they were saying unto him—How [then] were thine eyes opened?
11 He answered—The man that is called Jesus made clay and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me: Withdraw unto the pool of Siloam, and wash. Going away therefore and washing I received sight.
12 And they said unto him—Where is he? He saith—I know not.
13 They bring him unto the Pharisees—him at one time blind.
14 Now it was Sabbath, on the day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
15 Again therefore the Pharisees also questioned him, as to how he received sight. And he said unto them—Clay laid he upon mine eyes, and I washed,—and do see.
16 Certain from among the Pharisees therefore were saying—This man is not from God, because the Sabbath he keepeth not. Others [however] were saying—How can a sinful man such signs as these be doing? And there was a division among them.
17 So they were saying unto the blind man again—What dost thou say concerning him, in that he opened thine eyes? And he said—A prophet is he.
18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he was blind and received sight,—until they called the parents of him that had received sight,
19 and questioned them saying—Is this your son, of whom ye say that blind he was born? How then seeth he even now?
20 His parents therefore answered, and said—We know that this is our son, and that blind he was born;
21 But how he now seeth we know not, Or who opened his eyes we know not,—Question him, he is of age, He concerning himself shall speak.
22 These things said his parents, because they were in fear of the Jews,—for already had the Jews agreed together, that if anyone should confess him to be Christ an excommunicant from the synagogue should he be made.
23 For this cause his parents said—He is of age,—question him.
24 So they called the man a second time—[him] who had been blind, and said unto him—Give glory unto God! We know that this man is a sinner.
25 He therefore answered—Whether he is a sinner I know not: One thing I know,—That whereas I was blind now I see!
26 They said therefore unto him—What did he unto thee? How opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them—I told you just now, and ye did not hear: Why again do ye wish to hear? Are ye also wishing to become his disciples?
28 And they reviled him and said—Thou art the disciple of that man; But we are Moses’ disciples:—
29 We know that unto Moses hath God spoken; But as for this man we know not whence he is.
30 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.
31 We know that God unto sinners doth not hearken: But if one be a worshipper of God and be doing his will Unto this one he hearkeneth.
32 Out of age-past time hath it never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of one who blind had been born.
33 If this man were not from God he could have done nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him—In sins wast thou born altogether; And art thou teaching us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out: and finding him said—Dost thou believe on the son of Man?
36 He answered [and said]—And who is he, Sir, that I may believe on him?
37 Jesus said unto him—Thou hast both seen him and he that is speaking with thee is he.
38 And he said—I believe, Sir! and worshipped him.
39 And Jesus said—For judgment I unto this world came: That they who were not seeing might see, And they who were seeing might become blind.
40 They of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said unto him—Are we also blind?
41 Jesus said unto them—If blind ye had been ye had not had sin; But now ye say, We see your sin abideth.
