Gospel According to John
9:1 And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth. 9:2And his disciples
asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be
born blind? 9:3Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that
the works of God should be made manifest in him. 9:4We must work the works of
him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
9:5When I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 9:6When he had thus spoken,
he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the
clay, 9:7and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by
interpretation, Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
9:8The neighbors therefore, and they that saw him aforetime, that he was a beggar,
said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9:9Others said, It is he: others said, No, but
he is like him. He said, I am he. 9:10They said therefore unto him, How then were
thine eyes opened? 9:11He answered, The man that is called Jesus made clay, and
anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to Siloam, and wash: so I went away
and washed, and I received sight. 9:12And they said unto him, Where is he? He
saith, I know not. 9:13They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
9:14Now it was the sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his
eyes. 9:15Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight.
And he said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and I see.
9:16Some therefore of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he
keepeth not the sabbath. But others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such
signs? And there was division among them. 9:17They say therefore unto the blind
man again, What sayest thou of him, in that he opened thine eyes? And he said,
He is a prophet. 9:18The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had
been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him that
had received his sight, 9:19and asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was
born blind? How then doth he now see? 9:20His parents answered and said, We
know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 9:21but how he now seeth, we
know not; or who opened his eyes, we know not: ask him; he is of age; he shall
speak for himself. 9:22These things said his parents, because they feared the Jews:
for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man should confess him to be Christ,
he should be put out of the synagogue. 9:23Therefore said his parents, He is of age;
ask him. 9:24So they called a second time the man that was blind, and said unto
him, Give glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner. 9:25He therefore
answered, Whether he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I
was blind, now I see. 9:26They said therefore unto him, What did he to thee? How
opened he thine eyes? 9:27He answered them, I told you even now, and ye did not
hear; wherefore would ye hear it again? would ye also become his disciples?
9:28And they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are disciples of
Moses. 9:29We know that God hath spoken unto Moses: but as for this man, we
know not whence he is. 9:30The man answered and said unto them, Why, herein is
the marvel, that ye know not whence he is, and yet he opened mine eyes. 9:31We
know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and
do his will, him he heareth. 9:32Since the world began it was never heard that any
one opened the eyes of a man born blind. 9:33If this man were not from God, he
could do nothing. 9:34They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born
in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. 9:35Jesus heard that they had
cast him out; and finding him, he said, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 9:36He
answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him? 9:37Jesus said
unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee. 9:38And he
said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. 9:39And Jesus said, For judgment
came I into this world, that they that see not may see; and that they that see may
become blind. 9:40Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things,
and said unto him, Are we also blind? 9:41Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye
would have no sin: but now ye say, We see: your sin remaineth.
