And immediately he received his sight
As soon as ever the word was gone out of Christ's mouth, virtue went forth from him, and cured the man of his blindness; his eyes were at once opened, and he saw as other men;
and followed him;
his kind benefactor, with a grateful sense of his goodness, with strong affection for him, and faith in him;
who had sent such a Saviour to him; who had wrought such a wonderful miracle for him: for he was sensible that none but God could do this.
And all the people, when they saw [it];
what was done, how that the man they just before saw was blind, and begging by the way side, now had his sight restored to him, in an instant, and was following Jesus, in the crowd, along with them:
gave praise unto God;
or, as Beza's most ancient copy reads, "glory"; they ascribed the glory to God, and praised his name, that he had raised up the Messiah among them; of which this was a clear proof, inasmuch as the eyes of the blind were opened, according to ( Isaiah 35:5 ) .
