As Jesus and the disciples left the city of Jericho, a huge crowd followed behind.
Two blind men were sitting beside the road. When they heard that Jesus was coming that way, they began shouting, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!"
The crowd told them to be quiet, but they only shouted louder, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!"
Jesus stopped in the road and called, "What do you want me to do for you?"33
"Lord," they said, "we want to see!"
Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.
