João 9

1 AND as he was passing, he saw a man blind from the womb of his mother.

2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Raban, who sinned, this or his parents, that blind he should have been born?

3 Jeshu saith to them, Neither he sinned, nor his parents; but that there might be seen in him the works of Aloha.

4 Me it behoveth to do the works of Him who sent me, while it is to-day: the night cometh when man cannot work.

5 So long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.

6 And when he had said these things, he spat upon the ground, and formed clay from his spittle, and rubbed upon the eyes of the blind,

7 and said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Shilucha. And he went, washed, and came seeing.

8 But his neighbours, and they who had seen (him) aforetime as he begged, said, Is not this he who sat and begged?

9 Some said, It is he; and some said, It is not, but one like him; but he said, I am he.

10 They say to him, How were thine eyes opened?

11 He answered and said to them, The man whose name is Jeshu made clay, and rubbed upon mine eyes, and said to me, Go, wash in the waters of Shilucha; and I went, washed, and received sight.

12 They say to him, Where is he? He saith to them, I know not.

13 They brought him who from the beginning was blind to the Pharishee.

14 Now it was shabath when Jeshu made the clay and opened his eyes:

15 and again the Pharishee questioned him, How didst thou receive sight? He said to them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and received sight.

16 And some of the Pharishee said, This man is not from Aloha; for the shabath he keepeth not. But others said, How can a man, a sinner, perform these signs? And there was a division among them.

17 They say again to the blind, What sayest thou concerning him, because he hath opened thine eyes? He saith to them, I say that he is the Prophet.

18 But believed not concerning him the Jihudoyee that blind he had been and made-to-see, until they called the parents of him who had been made to see,

19 and asked them, If this is your son who, you say, was born blind, how now doth he see?

20 His parents answered and said, We know that this (is) our son, and that blind he was born.

21 But how he now seeth, or who hath opened his eyes, we know not. He also hath entered on his years, ask him: he for himself shall speak.

22 These words said his parents, because they feared the Jihudoyee; for the Jihudoyee had determined that if any man should confess him that he was the Meshicha, they would cast him out of the synagogue:

23 on this account said his parents, He hath entered on his years, ask him.

24 And they called the second time the man who had been blind, and said to him, Glorify Aloha: for we know that this man is a sinner.

25 He answered and said to them, Whether he be a sinner, I know not; but one (thing) I know, that I have been blind, and now, behold, I see.

26 They say to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he to thee thine eyes?

27 He saith to them, I told you, and you heard not: what will you hear? Are you also willing disciples to him to become?

28 But they reviled him, and said to him, Thou art the disciple of him; but we are the disciples of Musha.

29 And we know that with Musha Aloha spake; but for this, we know not whence he is.

30 Answered the man and said to them, At this then we must wonder, that you know not from whence he is, and (yet) mine eyes he hath opened!

31 But we know that Aloha the voice of sinners heareth not; but if any man fear him and do his will, him he heareth.

32 From of old it hath not been heard that a man hath opened the eyes of one born blind.

33 If this were not from Aloha, he could not this have done.

34 They answered and say to him, Thou altogether wast born in sins, and art thou teaching us? And they cast him without.

35 Jeshu heard that they had cast him without, and he found him, and said to him, Dost thou believe on the Son of Aloha?

36 He who had been cured answered and said, Who (is he), my Lord, that I may believe in him?

37 Jeshu said to him, Thou hast SEEN him, and He who talketh with thee is He.

38 He said, I believe, my Lord! And, falling, he adored him.

39 Jeshu said to them, For the judgment of this world am I come, that they who see not may see, and they who see may be made blind.

40 And some of the Pharishee who were with him heard these (words), and they said to him, Are we blind also?

41 Jeshu saith to them, If blind you were, you would have no sin; but now you say, We see: therefore your sin is confirmed.
