New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. 1 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.
2 And His disciples asked Him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?" 2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
3 Jesus answered, "It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. 3 "Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.
4 "We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. 4 As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.
5 "While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
6 When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 6 Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes.
7 and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam " (which is translated, Sent ). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing. 7 "Go," he told him, "wash in the Pool of Siloam" (this word means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.
8 Therefore the neighbors, and those who previously saw him as a beggar, were saying, "Is not this the one who used to sit and beg?" 8 His neighbors and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, "Isn't this the same man who used to sit and beg?"
9 Others were saying, "This is he," still others were saying, "No, but he is like him." He kept saying, "I am the one." 9 Some claimed that he was. Others said, "No, he only looks like him." But he himself insisted, "I am the man."
10 So they were saying to him, "How then were your eyes opened?" 10 "How then were your eyes opened?" they demanded.
11 He answered, "The man who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, 'Go to Siloam and wash '; so I went away and washed, and I received sight." 11 He replied, "The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see."
12 They said to him, "Where is He?" He said, "I do not know." 12 "Where is this man?" they asked him. "I don't know," he said.
