9:1 As he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth.
9:2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
9:3 Jesus answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents. But, that the works of God might be revealed in him,
9:5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
9:7 and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which means "Sent"). So he went away, washed, and came seeing.
9:8 The neighbors therefore, and those who saw that he was blind, before, said, "Isn`t this he who sat and begged?"
9:9 Others said, "It is he." Still others said, "He is like him." He said, "I am he."
9:10 They said therefore to him, "How were your eyes opened?"
9:12 Then they asked him, "Where is he?" He said, "I don`t know."
9:13 They brought him who before was blind to the Pharisees.
9:16 Some therefore of the Pharisees said, "This man is not from God, because he doesn`t keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" There was division among them.
9:17 Therefore they asked the blind man again, "What do you say about him, in that he opened your eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet."
9:18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him who had received his sight,
9:19 and asked them, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"
9:20 His parents answered them, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
9:21 but how he now sees, we don`t know; or who opened his eyes, we don`t know. He is of age. Ask him. He will speak for himself."
9:22 His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if any man would confess him as Christ, he would be put out of the synagogue.
9:23 Therefore his parents said, "He is of age. Ask him."
9:25 He therefore answered, "I don`t know if he is a sinner. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see."
9:26 They said to him again, "What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?"
9:27 He answered them, "I told you already, and you didn`t listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples?"
9:30 The man answered them, "How amazing! You don`t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.
9:32 Since the world began it has never been heard of that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind.
9:33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing."
9:34 They answered him, "You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us?" They threw him out.
9:35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and finding him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of God?"
9:36 He answered, "Who is he, Lord, that I may believe in him?"
9:37 Jesus said to him, "You have both seen him, and it is he who speaks with you."
9:38 He said, "Lord, I believe!" and he worshipped him.
9:39 Jesus said, "I came into this world for judgment, that those who don`t see may see; and that those who see may become blind."
9:40 Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said to him, "Are we also blind?"
9:41 Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, `We see.` Therefore your sin remains.
