As he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth.
His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
Jesus answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents. But, that the works of God might be revealed in him,
I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work.
When I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
When he had said this, he spat on the ground, made mud with the saliva, anointed the blind man's eyes with the mud,
and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which means "Sent"). So he went away, washed, and came seeing.
The neighbors therefore, and those who saw that he was blind before, said, "Isn't this he who sat and begged?"
Others said, "It is he." Still others said, "He is like him." He said, "I am he."
They said therefore to him, "How were your eyes opened?"
