John 9 (KJV) 1-41
[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.


May your each moment be filled with God's love,light and joy!
