Gospel According to John (WEB)

9:1 As he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth. 9:2His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"

9:3Jesus answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents. But, that the works of God might be revealed in him, 9:4I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work. 9:5When I am in the world, I am the light of the world." 9:6When he had said this, he spat on the ground, made mud with the saliva, anointed the blind man's eyes with the mud, 9:7and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which means "Sent"). So he went away, washed, and came seeing. 9:8The neighbors therefore, and those who saw that he was blind before, said, "Isn't this he who sat and begged?" 9:9Others said, "It is he." Still others said, "He is like him."

He said, "I am he." 9:10They said therefore to him, "How were your eyes opened?"

9:11He answered, "A man called Jesus made mud, anointed my eyes, and said to me, "Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash." So I went away and washed, and I received sight."

9:12Then they asked him, "Where is he?"

He said, "I don't know."

9:13They brought him who before was blind to the Pharisees. 9:14It was a Sabbath when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes. 9:15Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. He said to them, "He put mud on my eyes, I washed, and I see."

9:16Some therefore of the Pharisees said, "This man is not from God, because he doesn't keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" There was division among them. 9:17Therefore they asked the blind man again, "What do you say about him, in that he opened your eyes?"

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 who had received his sight, 9:19and asked them, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"

9:20His parents answered them, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; 9:21but how he now sees, we don't know; or who opened his eyes, we don't know. He is of age. Ask him. He will speak for himself." 9:22His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if any man would confess him as Christ, he would be put out of the synagogue. 9:23Therefore his parents said, "He is of age. Ask him."

9:24So they called the man who was blind a second time, and said to him, "Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner."

9:25He therefore answered, "I don't know if he is a sinner. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see."

9:26They said to him again, "What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?"

9:27He answered them, "I told you already, and you didn't listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples?"

9:28They became abusive towards him and said, "You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. 9:29We know that God has spoken to Moses. But as for this man, we don't know where he comes from."

9:30The man answered them, "How amazing! You don't know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. 9:31We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshipper of God, and does his will, he listens to him. 9:32Since the world began it has never been heard of that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind. 9:33If this man were not from God, he could do nothing."

9:34They answered him, "You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us?" They threw him out.

9:35Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and finding him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of God?"

9:36He answered, "Who is he, Lord, that I may believe in him?"

9:37Jesus said to him, "You have both seen him, and it is he who speaks with you."

9:38He said, "Lord, I believe!" and he worshiped him.

9:39Jesus said, "I came into this world for judgment, that those who don't see may see; and that those who see may become blind."

9:40Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said to him, "Are we also blind?"

9:41Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains.
