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