João 9

1 And passing by, he saw a man blind from birth.

2 And asked him the disciples of him, saying: Rabbi, who sinned? this, or the parents of him, that blind he should be born?

3 Answered Jesus: Neither this sinned, nor the parents of him; but that may be manifested the works of the God in him.

4 Me it behooves to work the works of the sending me, while day it is; comes night, when no one is able to work.

5 While in the world I may be, light I am of the world.

6 These things saying, he spit on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and rubbed the clay on the eyes of the blind,

7 and 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.

8 The then neighbors, and those seeing him the before, because a beggar he was, said: Not this is he sitting and begging?

9 Others said: That this is. Others but: That like him it is. He said: That I am.

10 They said then to him: How were opened of thee the eyes?

11 Answered 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.

12 They said then to him: Where is he? He says: Not I know.

13 They bring him to the Pharisees, that once blind.

14 It was and a sabbath, when the clay made the Jesus, and opened of him the eyes.

15 Again 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.

16 Said 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.

17 They 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.

18 Not 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.

19 And they asked them, saying: This is the son of you, whom you say, that blind he was born? how then now he sees?

20 Answered them the parents of him and said: We know, that this is the son of us, and that blind he was born;

21 how 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.

22 These 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.

23 Through this the parents of him said: That full age he has, him ask you.

24 They 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.

25 Answered then he and said: If a sinner he is, not I know; one I know, that blind being, now I see.

26 They said and to him again: What did he to thee? how opened of thee the eyes?

27 He 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?

28 They reviled him, and said: Thou art a disciple of him; we but of the Moses are disciples.

29 We know, that to Moses has spoken the God; this but not we know whence is.

30 Answered 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.

31 We 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.

32 From the age not it was heard, that opened any one eyes of blind having been born.

33 If not was this from God, not were able to do nothing.

34 They answered and said to him: In sins thou wast born wholly; and thou teachest us? And they cast him out.

35 Heard the Jesus, that they cast him out; and having found him, said to him: Thou believest into the son of the God?

36 Answered he and said: And who is he, O sir, that I may believe into him?

37 Said and to him the Jesus: Even thou hast seen him, and he talking with thee, he is.

38 He and said: I believe, O sir; and he prostrated to him.

39 And said the Jesus: For judgment I into the world this came, that those not seeing might see, and those seeing blind might become.

40 And heard of the Pharisees these things those being with him, and said to him: Not also we blind are?

41 Said 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.
