John 9

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21]

9:1 And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth.

9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind?

9:3 Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

9:4 We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

9:5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay,

9:7 and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

9:8 The neighbors therefore, and they that saw him aforetime, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

9:9 Others said, It is he: others said, No, but he is like him. He said, I am `he'.

9:10 They said therefore unto him, How then were thine eyes opened?

9:11 He 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.

9:12 And they said unto him, Where is he? He saith, I know not.

9:13 They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

9:14 Now it was the sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

9:15 Again 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.

9:16 Some 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.

9:17 They 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.

9:18 The 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,

9:19 and asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? How then doth he now see?

9:20 His parents answered and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:

9:21 but 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.

9:22 These 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.

9:23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

9:24 So 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.

9:25 He therefore answered, Whether he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

9:26 They said therefore unto him, What did he to thee? How opened he thine eyes?

9:27 He answered them, I told you even now, and ye did not hear; wherefore would ye hear it again? would ye also become his disciples?

9:28 And they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are disciples of Moses.

9:29 We know that God hath spoken unto Moses: but as for this man, we know not whence he is.

9:30 The man answered and said unto them, Why, herein is the marvel, that ye know not whence he is, and `yet' he opened mine eyes.

9:31 We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth.

9:32 Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a man born blind.

9:33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.

9:34 They answered and said unto 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 finding him, he said, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

9:36 He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him?

9:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee.

9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment came I into this world, that they that see not may see; and that they that see may become blind.

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

9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye would have no sin: but now ye say, We see: your sin remaineth.
