Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:1 - As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:2 - His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:3 - “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:4 - As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:5 - While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:6 - After saying this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:7 - “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” (this word means “Sent”). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:8 - His neighbors and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, “Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:9 - Some claimed that he was. Others said, “No, he only looks like him.” But he himself insisted, “I am the man.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:10 - “How then were your eyes opened?” they asked.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:11 - He replied, “The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:12 - “Where is this man?” they asked him. “I don’t know,” he said.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:13 - They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:14 - Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man’s eyes was a Sabbath.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:15 - Therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. “He put mud on my eyes,” the man replied, “and I washed, and now I see.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:16 - Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath.” But others asked, “How can a sinner perform such signs?” So they were divided.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:17 - Then they turned again to the blind man, “What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened.” The man replied, “He is a prophet.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:18 - They still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:19 - “Is this your son?” they asked. “Is this the one you say was born blind? How is it that now he can see?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:20 - “We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:21 - But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:22 - His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, who already had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be put out of the synagogue.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:23 - That was why his parents said, “He is of age; ask him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:24 - A second time they summoned the man who had been blind. “Give glory to God by telling the truth,” they said. “We know this man is a sinner.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:25 - He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:26 - Then they asked him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:27 - He answered, “I have told you already and you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples too?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:28 - Then they hurled insults at him and said, “You are this fellow’s disciple! We are disciples of Moses!

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:29 - We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:30 - The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:31 - We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:32 - Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:33 - If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:34 - To this they replied, “You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!” And they threw him out.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:35 - Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:36 - “Who is he, sir?” the man asked. “Tell me so that I may believe in him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:37 - Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:38 - Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:39 - Jesus said,[fn]“For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:40 - Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, “What? Are we blind too?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:41 - Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.
