John 9

1And passing by, he saw a man blind from birth. 2And asked him the disciples of him, saying: Rabbi, who sinned? this, or the parents of him, that blind he should be born? 3Answered Jesus: Neither this sinned, nor the parents of him; but that may be manifested the works of the God in him. 4Me it behooves to work the works of the sending me, while day it is; comes night, when no one is able to work. 5While in the world I may be, light I am of the world. 6These things saying, he spit on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and rubbed the clay on the eyes of the blind, 7and said to him: Go, wash thyself in the pool of the Siloam; (which is interpreted, having been sent.) He went away therefore, and washed himself, and came seeing. 8The then neighbors, and those seeing him the before, because a beggar he was, said: Not this is he sitting and begging? 9Others said: That this is. Others but: That like him it is. He said: That I am. 10They said then to him: How were opened of thee the eyes? 11Answered he and said: A man, being named Jesus, clay made, and rubbed of me the eyes, and said to me: Go into the Siloam, and wash thyself. Going and and washing myself, I obtained sight. 12They said then to him: Where is he? He says: Not I know. 13They bring him to the Pharisees, that once blind. 14It was and a sabbath, when the clay made the Jesus, and opened of him the eyes. 15Again therefore asked him also the Pharisees, how he obtained sight. He and said to them: Clay he put of me on the eyes, and I washed myself, and see. 16Said therefore of the Pharisees some: This the man not is from the God, because the sabbath not he keeps. Others said: How is able a man a sinner such signs to do? And a division was among them. 17They say to the blind again: Thou what sayest concerning him, seeing that he opened of thee the eyes? He and said: That a prophet he is. 18Not believed therefore the Jews concerning him, that blind he was, and obtained sight, till when they called the parents of him the having obtained sight. 19And they asked them, saying: This is the son of you, whom you say, that blind he was born? how then now he sees? 20Answered them the parents of him and said: We know, that this is the son of us, and that blind he was born; 21how but now he sees, not we know; or who opened of him the eyes, we not know, he full age has, him ask you; he concerning himself shall speak. 22These things said the parents of him, because they feared the Jews. Already for had agreed the Jews, that if any one him should confess Anointed, from a synagogue should be. 23Through this the parents of him said: That full age he has, him ask you. 24They called therefore a second time the man, who was blind, and said to him: Give glory to the God; we know, that the man this a sinner is. 25Answered then he and said: If a sinner he is, not I know; one I know, that blind being, now I see. 26They said and to him again: What did he to thee? how opened of thee the eyes? 27He answered them: I said to you already, and not you did hear; why again do you wish to hear? not also you wish of him disciples to be? 28They reviled him, and said: Thou art a disciple of him; we but of the Moses are disciples. 29We know, that to Moses has spoken the God; this but not we know whence is. 30Answered the man and said to them: In for this a wonder is, that you not know whence he is, and he has opened of me the eyes. 31We know but, that sinners the God not hears; but if any one a worshipper of God may be, and the will him may do, this he hears. 32From the age not it was heard, that opened any one eyes of blind having been born. 33If not was this from God, not were able to do nothing. 34They answered and said to him: In sins thou wast born wholly; and thou teachest us? And they cast him out. 35Heard the Jesus, that they cast him out; and having found him, said to him: Thou believest into the son of the God? 36Answered he and said: And who is he, O sir, that I may believe into him? 37Said and to him the Jesus: Even thou hast seen him, and he talking with thee, he is. 38He and said: I believe, O sir; and he prostrated to him. 39And said the Jesus: For judgment I into the world this came, that those not seeing might see, and those seeing blind might become. 40And heard of the Pharisees these things those being with him, and said to him: Not also we blind are? 41Said to them the Jesus: If blind you were, not you would have sin; now but you say: That we see; the therefore sin of you remains.
