1 And as he passed on, he saw a man who had been blind from his birth. 2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest thro' him. 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day; the night is coming, when no man can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world. Having said this,
6 he spit on the ground, and made clay with the spittle, and anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 And said to him, Go wash at the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8 Then the neighbours and they who had seen him before, when he was blind, said, Is not this he who used to sit begging? 9 Some said, This is he: others, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
11 He answered and said, A man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.
12 And I went, and washed, and received sight. Then said they to him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
13 They bring to the Pharisees the man who had aforetime been blind. 14 (It was the sabbath, when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.) 15 Again the Pharisees also asked him, How he had received his sight? He said to them, He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner, do such miracles?
17 And there was a division among them. They say to the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, for that he hath opened thine eyes?
18 He said, He is a prophet. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind and received his sight, till they had called the parents of him who had received his sight.
20 How then doth he now see? His parents answered them, and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind. 21 But how he now seeth, we know not, or who hath opened his eyes, we know not. 22 He is of age: ask him; he will speak concerning himself. His parents said this, because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed, That if any man should own him to be Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 Therefore they called a second time the man that had been blind, and said to him, Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, That he is a sinner I know not: one thing I know, that I was blind, and now see.
27 How opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hearken: why would ye hear it again?
28 Are ye also willing to be his disciples? Then they reviled him and said, Thou art a disciple of that fellow; but we are disciples of Moses. 29 We know that God spake to Moses; but we know not this fellow, whence he is.
30 The man answered and said to them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not whence he is; altho' he hath opened my eyes! 31 We know that God heareth not sinners; but if a man be a worshiper of God, and do his will, him he heareth. 32 Since the world began it was 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 to him, Thou-wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and having found him, he said to him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
39 And he worshiped him. Jesus said, For judgment am I come into the world, that they who see not, may see, and that they who see, may become blind.
40 And some of the Pharisees that were with him heard this, and said to him, Are we blind also?
