9:1 And passing by he saw a man blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying: Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered: Neither this man sinned nor his parents, but that the works of God might be manifested in him.
4 We must work the works of him that sent us while it is day: there comes night, when no man can work.
5 While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.
6 He said these things, and spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay,
7 and said to him: Go wash in the pool of Siloam, which is, translated. Sent. He went therefore and washed, and came seeing.
8 The neighbors therefore, and those that had seen him before, that he was a beggar, said: Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Others said that this is he; others said: No, but he is like him. He said: I am he.
10 They therefore said to him: How were thy eyes opened?
11 He answered: The man that is called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes, and said to me: Go to Siloam and wash. Having gone therefore and washed, I received sight.
12 They said to him: Where is he? He says: I know not.
13 They bring to the Pharisees him that was formerly blind.
14 And it was a sabbath on the day in which Jesus made clay and opened his eyes.
15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received sight. He said to them: He put clay upon my eyes and I washed and do see.
16 Some of the Pharisees therefore said: This man is not from God, for he keeps not the sabbath. Others said: How can a man a sinner do such signs? And there was a division among them.
17 They say therefore to the blind man again: What sayest thou of him, because he has opened thy eyes? He said: He is a prophet.
18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he was blind and had received sight, till they had called the parents of him that had received sight,
19 and asked them, saying: Is this your son, of whom you say that he was born blind? How, then, does he now see?
20 His parents therefore answered and said: We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
21 but how he now sees we know not, or who opened his eyes we know not: ask him; he is of age: he shall speak for himself
22 These things said his parents because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if any one should confess him to be Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23 For this reason his parents said that he is of age, ask him.
24 They therefore a second time called the man that had been blind, and said to him: Give glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He then answered: If he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, being blind, I now see.
26 They said therefore to him: What did he for thee? How opened he thy eyes?
27 He answered them: I have told you already, and you did not hear: why will you hear again? Will you also become his disciples?
28 They reviled him and said: Thou art a disciple of that man, but we are Moses’ disciples:
29 we know that God spoke to Moses, but this man, we know not whence he is.
30 The man answered and said to them: Why, in this is that which is wonderful, that you know not whence he is, and yet he has opened my eyes.
31 We know that God hears not sinners, but if any one be a worshiper of God and do his will, him he hears.
32 Never was it heard that any one opened the eyes of one that had been born blind:
33 if this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said to him: Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and he found him and said: Dost thou believe on the Son of man?
36 He answered and said: And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him?
37 Jesus said to him: Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that talks with thee.
38 He said, Lord, I believe; and he worshiped him.
39 And Jesus said: For judgment have I come into this world, that those that see not may see, and that those that see may become blind.
40 Some of the Pharisees that were with him heard, and said to him: Are we also blind?
41 Jesus said to them: If you were blind, you would not have sin; but now you say: We see: your sin remains.
