1And as Jesus passed by , he saw a man which was blindfrom his birth.2Andhisdisciplesaskedhim,saying , Master,who did sin , this man,orhisparents,that he was bornblind?3Jesusanswered , Neitherhath this mansinned , norhisparents:butthat the works of God should be made manifestinhim.4Imustwork the works of him that sentme,while it isday: the nightcometh , when no mancanwork .5As long as I amin the world, I am the light of the world.6
When he had thusspoken , he spat on the ground,andmadeclayof the spittle,and he anointeda the eyes of the blind man with the clay,7Andsaid unto him,Go , washin the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation , Sent .) He went his waytherefore,andwashed , andcameseeing .
The neighbourstherefore,and they which before had seenhimthat he wasblind,said , Isnotthis he that satandbegged ?
9Somesaid , This is he : otherssaid, He islikehim: but hesaid , Iam he.
10Therefore said they unto him,Howwerethineeyesopened ?
11Heansweredandsaid , A man that is calledJesusmadeclay,andanointedmineeyes,andsaid unto me,Goto the pool of Siloam,andwash : and I wentandwashed , and I received sight .
12Then said they unto him,Whereishe? He said , I knownot.13
They broughtto the Phariseeshim that aforetime was blind.14And it was the sabbath daywhenJesusmade the clay,andopenedhiseyes.15Thenagain the Phariseesalsoaskedhimhow he had received his sight . He said unto them, He putclayuponmineeyes,and I washed , and do see .
16Thereforesaidsomeof the Pharisees,ThismanisnotofGod,because he keepethnot the sabbath day.Otherssaid , Howcan a man that is a sinnerdosuchmiracles?And there was a divisionamongthem.17
They say unto the blind managain,Whatsayestthouofhim,that he hath openedthineeyes? He said , Heis a prophet.18But the Jewsdidnotbelieveconcerninghim,that he had beenblind,and received his sight , untiltheycalled the parents of him that had received his sight .
19And they askedthem,saying , Isthisyourson,whoyesay was bornblind?howthen doth henowsee ?
20Hisparentsansweredthemandsaid , We knowthatthisisourson,andthat he was bornblind:21But by what meanshenowseeth , we knownot;orwho hath openedhiseyes,weknownot:heis of age;askhim:he shall speakforhimself.22These words spakehisparents,because they feared the Jews:for the Jews had agreedalready,thatif any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.23Thereforesaidhisparents , He is of age;askhim.24Thenagaincalledthey the manthatwasblind,andsaid unto him,GiveGod the praise:weknowthatthismanis a sinner.25Heansweredandsaid , Whether he be a sinner or no, I knownot: one thing I know , that, whereas I wasblind,now I see .
26Then said they to himagain,What did he to thee?how opened hethineeyes?27
He answeredthem, I have toldyoualready,and ye didnothear : whereforewould ye hear it again?willyealsobehisdisciples?28Then they reviledhim,andsaid , Thouarthisdisciple;butweareMoses'disciples.29WeknowthatGodspake unto Moses: as for thisfellow, we knownot from whence he is .
The manansweredandsaid unto them,Whyhereinis a marvellous thing,thatyeknownot from whence he is , and yet he hath openedmineeyes.31Now we knowthatGodhearethnotsinners:butif any manbe a worshipper of God,anddoethhiswill,him he heareth .
32Since the world began was itnotheardthat any manopened the eyes of one that was bornblind.33If this manwerenotofGod, he coulddonothing.34
They answeredandsaid unto him,Thouwastaltogetherborninsins,and dost thouteachus?And they castbhimout.35Jesusheardthat they had casthimout;and when he had foundhim, he said unto him,Dostthoubelieveon the Son of God?36Heansweredandsaid , Who is he , Lord,that I might believeonhim?37AndJesussaid unto him,Thou hastbothseenhim,and it ishe that talkethwiththee.38And he said , Lord, I believe . And he worshippedhim.39AndJesussaid , ForjudgmentI am comeintothisworld,that they which seenot might see ; and that they which see might be madeblind.40And some of the Phariseeswhichwerewithhimheard these words,andsaid unto him,Areweblindalso?41Jesussaid unto them,If ye wereblind, ye shouldhavenosin:butnow ye say , We see ; thereforeyoursinremaineth .
