John 9

ASV 1 And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth. NIV 1 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. ASV 2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind? NIV 2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" ASV 3 Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. NIV 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. ASV 4 We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. NIV 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. ASV 5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world. NIV 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." ASV 6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay, NIV 6 Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. ASV 7 and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing. NIV 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. ASV 8 The neighbors therefore, and they that saw him aforetime, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? NIV 8 His neighbors and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, "Isn't this the same man who used to sit and beg?" ASV 9 Others said, It is he: others said, No, but he is like him. He said, I am [he]. NIV 9 Some claimed that he was. Others said, "No, he only looks like him." But he himself insisted, "I am the man." ASV 10 They said therefore unto him, How then were thine eyes opened? NIV 10 "How then were your eyes opened?" they demanded. ASV 11 He answered, The man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to Siloam, and wash: so I went away and washed, and I received sight. NIV 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." ASV 12 And they said unto him, Where is he? He saith, I know not. NIV 12 "Where is this man?" they asked him. "I don't know," he said. ASV 13 They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. NIV 13 They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind. ASV 14 Now it was the sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. NIV 14 Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man's eyes was a Sabbath. ASV 15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. And he said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and I see. NIV 15 Therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. "He put mud on my eyes," the man replied, "and I washed, and now I see." ASV 16 Some therefore of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he keepeth not the sabbath. But others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such signs? And there was division among them. NIV 16 Some of the Pharisees said, "This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath." But others asked, "How can a sinner do such miraculous signs?" So they were divided. ASV 17 They say therefore unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, in that he opened thine eyes? And he said, He is a prophet. NIV 17 Finally they turned again to the blind man, "What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened." The man replied, "He is a prophet." ASV 18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight, NIV 18 The Jews still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man's parents. ASV 19 and asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? How then doth he now see? NIV 19 "Is this your son?" they asked. "Is this the one you say was born blind? How is it that now he can see?" ASV 20 His parents answered and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: NIV 20 "We know he is our son," the parents answered, "and we know he was born blind. ASV 21 but how he now seeth, we know not; or who opened his eyes, we know not: ask him; he is of age; he shall speak for himself. NIV 21 But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don't know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself." ASV 22 These things said his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man should confess him [to be] Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. NIV 22 His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews, for already the Jews had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Christ would be put out of the synagogue. ASV 23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him. NIV 23 That was why his parents said, "He is of age; ask him." ASV 24 So they called a second time the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner. NIV 24 A second time they summoned the man who had been blind. "Give glory to God, " they said. "We know this man is a sinner." ASV 25 He therefore answered, Whether he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. NIV 25 He replied, "Whether he is a sinner or not, I don't know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!" ASV 26 They said therefore unto him, What did he to thee? How opened he thine eyes? NIV 26 Then they asked him, "What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?" ASV 27 He answered them, I told you even now, and ye did not hear; wherefore would ye hear it again? would ye also become his disciples? NIV 27 He answered, "I have told you already and you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples, too?" ASV 28 And they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are disciples of Moses. NIV 28 Then they hurled insults at him and said, "You are this fellow's disciple! We are disciples of Moses! ASV 29 We know that God hath spoken unto Moses: but as for this man, we know not whence he is. NIV 29 We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don't even know where he comes from." ASV 30 The man answered and said unto them, Why, herein is the marvel, that ye know not whence he is, and [yet] he opened mine eyes. NIV 30 The man answered, "Now that is remarkable! You don't know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. ASV 31 We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth. NIV 31 We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly man who does his will. ASV 32 Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a man born blind. NIV 32 Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. ASV 33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing. NIV 33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing." ASV 34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. NIV 34 To this they replied, "You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!" And they threw him out. ASV 35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and finding him, he said, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? NIV 35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" ASV 36 He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him? NIV 36 "Who is he, sir?" the man asked. "Tell me so that I may believe in him." ASV 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee. NIV 37 Jesus said, "You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you." ASV 38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. NIV 38 Then the man said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him. ASV 39 And Jesus said, For judgment came I into this world, that they that see not may see; and that they that see may become blind. NIV 39 Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind." ASV 40 Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said unto him, Are we also blind? NIV 40 Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, "What? Are we blind too?" ASV 41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye would have no sin: but now ye say, We see: your sin remaineth. NIV 41 Jesus said, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.
