Chapter 9

John 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from his birth.

John 9:2 Then His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

John 9:3 Jesus answered, neither has this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

John 9:4 I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.

John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

John 9:6 When He had so spoken, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spit, and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

John 9:7 and said to him, go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is translated, Sent) therefore he went his way, and washed, and came seeing.

John 9:8 Therefore the neighbors and they who before had seen him that was blind, said, is not this he that sat and begged?

John 9:9 Some said, this is he: others said, he is like him: but he said, I am he.

John 9:10 Therefore they said to him, how were your eyes opened?

John 9:11 He answered and said, a man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

John 9:12 Then said they to him, where is He? He said, I do not know.

John 9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that previously was blind.

John 9:14 It was the Sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

John 9:15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said to them, He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I do see.

John 9:16 Therefore some of the Pharisees said, this man is not of God, because He does not keep the Sabbath day. Others said, how can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? So there was a division among them.

John 9:17 They say to the blind man again, what do you say of Him, that He has opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

John 9:18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called his parents about him that had received his sight.

John 9:19 So they asked them, saying, is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?

John 9:20 His parents answered them and said, we know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:

John 9:21 but by what means he now sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he will speak for himself.

John 9:22 These words spoke his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if anyone did confess that He was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

John 9:23 Therefore his parents said, he is of age; ask him.

John 9:24 Then again they called the man that was blind, and said to him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.

John 9:25 He answered and said, whether He is a sinner or not, I do not know: one thing I know, I once was blind, but now I see.

John 9:26 Then they said to him again, what did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?

John 9:27 He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear: why would you hear it again? Will you also be His disciples?

John 9:28 Then they reviled him, and said, you are His disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples.

John 9:29 We know that God spoke to Moses: as for this fellow, we do not know where He is from.

John 9:30 The man answered and said to them, why this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know where He is from, and yet He has opened my eyes.

John 9:31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners: but if any man be a worshiper of God, and does His will, He hears him.

John 9:32 Since this Old Covenant Age began, it has not been heard that anyone opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

John 9:33 If this man were not of God, He could do nothing.

John 9:34 They answered and said to him, you were altogether born in sin, and do you teach us? Then they cast him out.

John 9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, do you believe in the Son of God?

John 9:36 He answered and said, who is He Lord that I may believe in Him?

John 9:37 Then Jesus said to him, you have both seen Him, and it is He that talks with you.

John 9:38 So he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshiped Him.

John 9:39 Then Jesus said, for judgment I have come into this world, that they who see not might see; and that they who see might be made blind.

John 9:40 and some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, are we blind also?

John 9:41 Jesus said to them, if you were blind, you should have no sin: but now you say, we see; therefore your sin remains.
