35 And it came to pass as he approached Jericho, a certain blind man sat beside the road begging.

36 And having heard a multitude going by, he inquired what this may be.

37 And they informed him that Jesus the Nazarene passes by.

38 And he cried out, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, be merciful to me.

39 And those who went ahead rebuked him, so that he would be quiet, but he cried out much more, Thou son of David, be merciful to me.

40 And having stood still, Jesus commanded him to be brought to him. And when he came near, he questioned him,

41 saying, What do thou want that I would do to thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive sight.

42 And Jesus said to him, Receive sight. Thy faith has healed thee.

43 And immediately he received sight, and followed him glorifying God. And all the people when they saw it gave praise to God.
