9:1 And as [Jesus] passed by, he saw a man who was blind from
9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who sinned,
this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his
parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in
9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
the night cometh when no man can work.
9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spit on the ground, and made
clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man
with the clay,
9:7 And said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is
by interpretation, Sent.) He went therefore, and washed, and
9:8 The neighbors therefore, and they who before had seen him
that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9:9 Some said, This is he: others [said], He is like him: [but]
he said, I am [he].
9:10 Therefore they said to him, How were thy eyes opened?
9:11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus, made
clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to the pool of
Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
9:12 Then said they to him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that before was blind.
9:14 And it was the sabbath when Jesus made the clay, and opened
9:15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received
his sight. He said to them, He put clay upon my eyes, and I
washed, and do see.
9:16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not from
God, because he keepeth not the sabbath. Others said, How can a
man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division
9:17 They say to the blind man again, What sayest thou of him,
that he hath opened thy eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
9:18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him that he had
been blind, and received his sight, until they called the
parents of him that had received his sight.
9:19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say
was born blind? how then doth he now see?
9:20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is
our son, and that he was born blind:
9:21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath
opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he will
speak for himself.
9:22 These [words] his parents spoke, because they feared the
Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man
confessed that he was Christ, he should be put out of the
9:23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
9:24 Then again they called the man that was blind, and said to
him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
9:25 He answered and said, Whether he is a sinner, I know not:
one thing I know, that whereas I was blind, now I see.
9:26 Then they said to him again, What did he to thee? how
opened he thy eyes?
9:27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not
hear: Why would ye hear [it] again? will ye also be his
9:28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but
we are the disciples of Moses.
9:29 We know that God spoke to Moses: [as for] this [man], we
know not whence he is.
9:30 The man answered and said to them, Why, herein is a
marvelous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and [yet]
he hath opened my eyes.
9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man is
a worshiper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
9:32 Since the world began hath it not been heard that any man
opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
9:33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.
9:34 They answered and said to him, Thou wast altogether born in
sins, and dost thou teach us? and they cast him out.
9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out: and when he had
found him, he said to him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
9:36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I may believe
9:37 And Jesus said to him, thou hast both seen him, and it is
he that talketh with thee.
9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshiped him.
9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world,
that they who see not, may see; and that they who see, may be
9:40 And [some] of the Pharisees who were with him heard these
words, and said to him, Are we blind also?
9:41 Jesus said to them, If ye were blind, ye would have no sin:
but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
