New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
35 As they approached Jericho, a blind beggar was sitting beside the road. 35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging.
36 When he heard the noise of a crowd going past, he asked what was happening. 36 When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening.
37 They told him that Jesus of Nazareth was going by. 37 They told him, "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by."
38 So he began shouting, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 38 He called out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
39 The crowds ahead of Jesus tried to hush the man, but he only shouted louder, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 39 Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
40 When Jesus heard him, he stopped and ordered that the man be brought to him. 40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him,
41 Then Jesus asked the man, "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord," he pleaded, "I want to see!" 41 "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord, I want to see," he replied.
42 And Jesus said, "All right, you can see! Your faith has healed you." 42 Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has healed you."
43 Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all who saw it praised God, too. 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.
