1 And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from 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 this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God
should be revealed in him.
4 It is necessary for Me to work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night
is coming when no one is able to work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.
6 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva;
and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
7 And He said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated, Sent). So he
went and washed, and came back seeing.
8 Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, Is
not this he who sat and begged?
9 Some said, This is he. Others said, He is like him. He said, I am he.
10 Therefore they said to him, How were your eyes opened?
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. So I went and washed, and I received sight.
12 Then they said to him, Where is He? He said, I do not know.
13 They brought him who formerly was blind to the Pharisees.
14 And it was a Sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
15 Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he had received his sight. He said to
them, He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.
16 Therefore some of the Pharisees 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 said to the blind man again, What do you say about Him because He opened
your eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
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 who had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then
does he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was
21 but by what means he now sees we do not know, or who opened his eyes we do not
know. He is of age; ask him. He will speak for himself.
22 His parents said these things because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had agreed
already that if anyone should confess that He was Christ, he would be expelled from the
23 Therefore his parents said, He is of age; ask him.
24 So they again called the man who was blind, and said to him, Give God the glory. We know that this Man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I
know: that though I was blind, now I see.
26 Then they said to him again, What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?
27 He answered them, I told you already, and you did not hear. Why do you want to hear
it again? Do you not also want to become His disciples?
28 Then they reviled him and said, You are His disciple, but we are Moses' disciples.
29 We know that God spoke to Moses; as for this fellow, we do not know where He is
30 The man answered and said to them, Why, this is a marvelous thing, that you do not
know where He is from; yet He has opened my eyes!
31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone reveres God
and does His will, He hears him.
32 Since the world began it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of one
who was born blind.
33 If this Man were not from God, He would not be able to do anything.
34 They answered and said to him, You were born completely in sins, and do you teach
us? And they drove him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had driven him out; and when He had found him, He said to
him, Do you believe into the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is He, Lord, that I may believe into Him?
37 And 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 did homage to Him.
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see
may see, and that those who see may become blind.
40 Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him,
Are we blind also?
41 Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, We
see. Therefore your sin remains.
