1 AND passing by he saw a man that was blind from birth; 2 and his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents, but that the works of God might appear in him. 4 I must perform the works of him that sent me, while it is day; night comes when no man can work. 5 While I am in the world I am the light of the world.
6 Saying these things he spit on the ground, and made a paste of the spittle, and put the paste on his eyes, 7 and said to him, Go, and wash in the pool of the Siloam; which is interpreted, Sent. Then he went away and washed, and came seeing.
8 Then the neighbors and those who had seen him before, because he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9 Some said, This is he; others said, No, but he is like him; he said, I am he.
10 Then they said to him, How then were your eyes opened?
11 He answered, A man called Jesus made paste and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to the Siloam and wash; then I went and washed, and obtained sight.
12 They said to him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that was formerly blind; 14 and it was on the sabbath when Jesus made the paste and opened his eyes. 15 Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he obtained sight. And he said to them, He put a paste on my eyes, and I washed, and see.
16 Then some of the Pharisees said, This man is not of God, for he does not keep the sabbath. Others said, How can a sinful man perform such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17 They said to the blind man again, What do you say of him, because he opened your eyes? And he said, He is a prophet
18 Then the Jews did not believe of him that he had been blind and received his sight, till they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, of whom you say that he was born blind? How then does he now see?
20 His parents answered and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; 21 but how he now sees we know not, or who has opened his eyes we know not; ask him, he is of age, he will speak for himself. 22 His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for already the Jews had agreed that if any one confessed him to be Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue; 23 therefore his parents said, He is of age, ask him.
24 Then they called the man who had been blind, a second time, and said to him, Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner.
25 Then he answered, Whether he is a sinner I know not; one thing I know, that having been blind, I now see.
26 Then they said to him, What did he do to you? how did he open your eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear; why do you wish to hear again? Do you also wish to be his disciples?
28 They reproached him, and said, You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. 29 We know that God spoke to Moses, but we know not whence this man is.
30 The man answered and said to them, It is a strange thing, that you know not whence he is, and he has opened my eyes. 31 We know that God hears not sinners; but if one is a worshipper of God, and does his will, him he hears. 32 Since the world began it has not been heard that any one opened the eyes of one born blind; 33 unless this man was from God he would have been able to do nothing.
34 They answered and said to him, You were born entirely in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him without.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him without, and finding him he said to him, Do you believe in the Son of God?
36 And he answered and said, Who is he, sir, that I shall believe on him?
37 Jesus said to him, You have both seen him, and he that speaks to you is he.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe, and worshipped him.
39 And Jesus said, I came into this world for judgment, that those not seeing may see, and those seeing become blind.
40 And the Pharisees who were with him heard these things and said to him, Are we also blind?
41 Jesus said to them, If you were blind you would not have had sin; but now you say, We see, your sin remains.
