1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. 2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Teacher, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8 The neighbors therefore, and they who before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that formerly was blind. 14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15 Then again the Pharisees asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon my eyes, and I washed, and do see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keeps not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17 They said unto the blind man again, What say you of him, that he has opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? how then does he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 21 But by what means he now sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. 22 These words spoke his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or not, I know not: one thing I know, that, though I was blind, now I see.
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear: why would you hear it again? will you also be his disciples?
28 Then they reviled him, and said, You are his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples. 29 We know that God spoke unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from where he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why, in this is a marvelous thing, that you know not from where he is, and yet he has opened my eyes. 31 Now we know that God hears not sinners: but if any man be a worshiper of God, and does his will, him he hears. 32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Do you believe on the Son of God?
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they who see not might see; and that they who see might be made blind.
40 And some of the Pharisees who were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
