We must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day; night comes, when no one can work.
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
As he said this, he spat on the ground and made clay of the spittle and anointed the man's eyes with the clay,
saying to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Silo'am" (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing.
The neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar, said, "Is not this the man who used to sit and beg?"
Some said, "It is he"; others said, "No, but he is like him." He said, "I am the man."
