1 And, passing along, he saw a man blind from his 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 should be made manifest in him. 4 We must work the works of Him Who sent Me, while it is day. Night is coming, when no one can work. 5 When I am in the world, I am the Light of the world."
6 Having thus spoken, He spit on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay, 7 and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which is interpreted, Sent). He went, therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8 The neighbors, therefore, and those formerly beholding him, that he was a beggar, said, "Is not this he that sits and begs?" 9 Some said, "This is he;" others said, "No, but he is like him;" he said, "I am he."
10 They said, therefore, to him, "How then were your eyes opened?"
11 He answered, "The Man Who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, 'Go to Siloam, and wash;' having gone, therefore, and washed, I received sight."
12 And they said to him, "Where is He?" He says, I know not."
13 They bring to the Pharisees him who was once blind. 14 And it was a sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and anointed his eyes. 15 Again, therefore, the Pharisees also asked him, how he received sight. And he said to them, "He put clay upon my eyes, and I washed, and see."
16 Some of the Pharisees, therefore, said, "This Man is not from God, because He does not keep the sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" And there was a division among them.
17 They say, therefore, to the blind man again, "What do you say about Him, seeing that He opened your eyes?" And he said, "He is a Prophet."
18 The Jews, therefore, did not believe concerning him, that he was blind, and received sight, until they called the parents of him who received sight,
19 and asked them, "Is this your son, who ye say, was born blind? How, then, does he now see?"
20 His parents, therefore, answered and said, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; 21 but how he now sees, we do not know. Ask him; he is of age; he will speak for himself." 22 These things said his parents, because they were fearing the Jews; for the Jews had agreed already, that, if any one should confess Him to be Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 On this account, his parents said, "He is of age; ask him."
24 Therefore, they called a second time the man who was blind, and said to him, "Give glory to 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, though I was blind, now I see."
26 They said, therefore, to him, "What did He do to you? how did He open your eyes?"
27 He answered them, "I told you already, and ye did not hear; why do ye wish to hear it again? Do ye also wish to become His disciples?"
28 And they reviled him, and said, "You are His disciple; but we are disciples of Moses. 29 We know that God hath spoken to Moses; but, as to this Man, we know not whence He is."
30 The man answered and said to them, "Why, in this is the wonder, that ye do not know whence He is, and He opened my eyes. 31 We know that God heareth not sinners; but, if any one is a worshiper of God, and does His will, him He heareth. 32 From remotest antiquity, it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of one born blind! 33 If this Man were not from God, He could do nothing."
34 They answered and said to him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us!" And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they cast him out; and, finding him, He said, "Do you believe on the Son of God?"
36 And He answered, and said, "And Who is He, Lord, that I may believe on Him?"
37 Jesus said to him, "You have both seen Him, and it is He Who is talking with you."
38 And he said, "Lord, I believe." And he worshiped Him.
39 And Jesus said, "For judgment came I into the world; that those who see not may see, and that those who see may become blind."
40 Those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things, and said to Him, "Are we also blind?"
41 Jesus said to them, "If ye were blind, ye would have no sin; but now ye say, 'We see,' your sin abides."
