461Then they came to Jericho. And 2as He was leavingJericho with His disciples and a largecrowd, a blindbeggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road.
When he heard that it was Jesus the 3Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, 4Son of David, havemercy on me!"
48Many were sternlytelling him to be quiet, but he kept crying out all the more, "5Son of David, havemercy on me!"
And Jesusstopped and said, "Call him here."So they called the blindman, saying to him, "6Takecourage, stand up! He is calling for you."
50Throwingaside his cloak, he jumped up and came to Jesus.
And answering him, Jesussaid, "What do you want Me to do for you?" And the blindmansaid to Him, "a7Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!"
And Jesussaid to him, "Go; 8your faith has bmade you well."Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road.
