New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 1 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.
2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" 2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
3 Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed 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 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the 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 As long as 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 these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. 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 He said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which is translated, Sent). So he went 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 had seen that he was blind said, "Is not this he who sat and begged?" 8 His neighbors and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, "Isn't this the same man who used to sit and beg?"
