João 9

1 E, passando Jesus, viu um homem cego de nascença.

2 E os seus discípulos lhe perguntaram, dizendo: Rabi, quem pecou, este ou seus pais, para que nascesse cego?

3 Jesus respondeu: Nem ele pecou nem seus pais; mas foi assim para que se manifestem nele as obras de Deus.

4 Convém que eu faça as obras daquele que me enviou, enquanto é dia; a noite vem, quando ninguém pode trabalhar.

5 Enquanto estou no mundo, sou a luz do mundo.

6 Tendo dito isto, cuspiu na terra, e com a saliva fez lodo, e untou com o lodo os olhos do cego.

7 E disse-lhe: Vai, lava-te no tanque de Siloé (que significa o Enviado). Foi, pois, e lavou-se, e voltou vendo.

8 Então os vizinhos, e aqueles que dantes tinham visto que era cego, diziam: Não é este aquele que estava assentado e mendigava?

9 Uns diziam: É este. E outros: Parece-se com ele. Ele dizia: Sou eu.

10 Diziam-lhe, pois: Como se te abriram os olhos?

11 Ele respondeu, e disse: O homem, chamado Jesus, fez lodo, e untou-me os olhos, e disse-me: Vai ao tanque de Siloé, e lava-te. Então fui, e lavei-me, e vi.

12 Disseram-lhe, pois: Onde está ele? Respondeu: Não sei.

13 Levaram, pois, aos fariseus o que dantes era cego.

14 E era sábado quando Jesus fez o lodo e lhe abriu os olhos.

15 Tornaram, pois, também os fariseus a perguntar-lhe como vira, e ele lhes disse: Pôs-me lodo sobre os olhos, lavei-me, e vejo.

16 Então alguns dos fariseus diziam: Este homem não é de Deus, pois não guarda o sábado. Diziam outros: Como pode um homem pecador fazer tais sinais? E havia dissensão entre eles.

17 Tornaram, pois, a dizer ao cego: Tu, que dizes daquele que te abriu os olhos? E ele respondeu: Que é profeta.

18 Os judeus, porém, não creram que ele tivesse sido cego, e que agora visse, enquanto não chamaram os pais do que agora via.

19 E perguntaram-lhes, dizendo: É este o vosso filho, que vós dizeis ter nascido cego? Como, pois, vê agora?

20 Seus pais lhes responderam, e disseram: Sabemos que este é o nosso filho, e que nasceu cego;

21 Mas como agora vê, não sabemos; ou quem lhe tenha aberto os olhos, não sabemos. Tem idade, perguntai-lho a ele mesmo; e ele falará por si mesmo.

22 Seus pais disseram isto, porque temiam os judeus. Porquanto já os judeus tinham resolvido que, se alguém confessasse ser ele o Cristo, fosse expulso da sinagoga.

23 Por isso é que seus pais disseram: Tem idade, perguntai-lho a ele mesmo.

24 Chamaram, pois, pela segunda vez o homem que tinha sido cego, e disseram-lhe: Dá glória a Deus; nós sabemos que esse homem é pecador.

25 Respondeu ele pois, e disse: Se é pecador, não sei; uma coisa sei, é que, havendo eu sido cego, agora vejo.

26 E tornaram a dizer-lhe: Que te fez ele? Como te abriu os olhos?

27 Respondeu-lhes: Já vo-lo disse, e não ouvistes; para que o quereis tornar a ouvir? Quereis vós porventura fazer-vos também seus discípulos?

28 Então o injuriaram, e disseram: Discípulo dele sejas tu; nós, porém, somos discípulos de Moisés.

29 Nós bem sabemos que Deus falou a Moisés, mas este não sabemos de onde é.

30 O homem respondeu, e disse-lhes: Nisto, pois, está a maravilha, que vós não saibais de onde ele é, e contudo me abrisse os olhos.

31 Ora, nós sabemos que Deus não ouve a pecadores; mas, se alguém é temente a Deus, e faz a sua vontade, a esse ouve.

32 Desde o princípio do mundo nunca se ouviu que alguém abrisse os olhos a um cego de nascença.

33 Se este não fosse de Deus, nada poderia fazer.

34 Responderam eles, e disseram-lhe: Tu és nascido todo em pecados, e nos ensinas a nós? E expulsaram-no.

35 Jesus ouviu que o tinham expulsado e, encontrando-o, disse-lhe: Crês tu no Filho de Deus?

36 Ele respondeu, e disse: Quem é ele, Senhor, para que nele creia?

37 E Jesus lhe disse: Tu já o tens visto, e é aquele que fala contigo.

38 Ele disse: Creio, Senhor. E o adorou.

39 E disse-lhe Jesus: Eu vim a este mundo para juízo, a fim de que os que não vêem vejam, e os que vêem sejam cegos.

40 E aqueles dos fariseus, que estavam com ele, ouvindo isto, disseram-lhe: Também nós somos cegos?

41 Disse-lhes Jesus: Se fôsseis cegos, não teríeis pecado; mas como agora dizeis: Vemos; por isso o vosso pecado permanece.

1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

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

4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

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

6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.

13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

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

19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?

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

21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.

22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

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

25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?

27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?

28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples.

29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.

31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

34 They answered and said unto 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 when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.

38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?

41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
