And it came to pass that as He was coming nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the wayside begging.
And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
And he cried, saying, "Jesus, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me!"
And those who went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace, but he cried out all the more, "Thou Son of David, have mercy on me!"
And Jesus stood and commanded him to be brought unto Him. And when he had come near, He asked him,
saying, "What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?" And he said, "Lord, that I may receive my sight."
And Jesus said unto him, "Receive thy sight; thy faith hath saved thee."
And immediately he received his sight and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
