After saying this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.

Tools specific to Jhn 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.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:9

Some claimed that he was. Others said, “No, he only looks like him.” But he himself insisted, “I am the man.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:10

“How then were your eyes opened?” they asked.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:12

“Where is this man?” they asked him. “I don’t know,” he said.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:13

They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:14

Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man’s eyes was a Sabbath.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:20

“We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:23

That was why his parents said, “He is of age; ask him.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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!”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:26

Then they asked him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 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?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:28

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:28

Then they hurled insults at him and said, “You are this fellow’s disciple! We are disciples of Moses!

Tools specific to Jhn 9:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:29

We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:30

The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:31

We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:32

Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:33

If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:34

To this they replied, “You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!” And they threw him out.

Tools specific to Jhn 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?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:36

“Who is he, sir?” the man asked. “Tell me so that I may believe in him.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:39
