9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
from birth εκ γενετης (1079)
1 As He passed by, He saw a man who had been blind from birth.
9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
2 So His disciples inquired of Him, "Rabbi, who sinned—this man or his parents—that he was born blind?" * *
9:3 Jesus answered, Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
3 "Neither he nor his parents sinned," answered Jesus, "but he was born blind so that God's work might be made manifest in him.

9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.
4 It is necessary to do the works of HIM who sent me while there is daylight. Night comes on when no one is able to work.
9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
5 When I am present in the world, I am the Light of the World."
9:6 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,
ground [made] mud χαμαι (5476) πηλον(4081)
6 Having said this, He spat on the ground, and making the dust and spittle into a clay poultice, He applied the clay over the man's eyes,
9:7 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.
7 And said to him, "Go and wash in the pool of Siloam"—the name means `Sent.´ So he went and washed his eyes, and returned having received his sight.
9:8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
8 Therefore his neighbors and the other people who had noticed him before because he was blind, began asking, "Is this not the man always sitting and begging?"
9:9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
9 "Yes he is," some replied. "No," said others, "but he is like him." But his own statement was, "I am he."
9:10 Therefore said they unto him, How were your eyes opened?
LATIN aperti sunt tibi oculi
10 Then they asked, "How were your eyes opened?"
9:11 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.
11 "He whose name is Jesus," he answered, "applied wet clay over my eyes, and told me to go to the water at Siloam and wash. So I went and washed and gained my sight."
9:12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
12 "Where is He?" they said. “I do not know,” he replied.
9:13 They brought to the Pharisees him that in old times was blind.
13 They brought the man who had been blind to the Pharisees.
9:14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
14 Now the day on which Jesus made the clay poultice and opened the man's eyes was the Sabbath.
9:15 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.
15 Then the Pharisees in their turn asked him how he had received his sight. "He put wet clay on my eyes," he replied, "and I washed it off, and now I see."
9:16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keeps not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
16 This led some of the Pharisees to say, "This man has not come from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath." Others argued, "How is it possible for a man of sin to do such miracles?" There remained a division among them.
9:17 They say unto the blind man again, What says you of him, that he has opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
17 Again they asked the man who once had been blind, "What do you say about Him opening your eyes." The man said, "He is a Prophet."
9:18 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.
18 However, these Judeans did not believe his statement—that he had been blind and had obtained his sight—until they called his parents and asked them,
9:19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who all of you say was born blind? how then does he now see?
19 "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How can he now see?"
9:20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
20 "We know," replied the parents, "that this is our son and he was born blind:
9:21 But by what means he now sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
21 We do not know how he can now see or who has opened his eyes. He is of full age; ask him, he will give his own account."
9:22 These words spoke 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.
Out of synagogue αποσυναγωγος (656)
22 The parents said this, because they were afraid of the leaders of Judea who had already agreed that if anyone should avow Jesus as the Christ, that person should be removed from the synagogue.
9:23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
23 That was the reason his parents said, "He is an adult: ask him."
9:24 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.
24 Then the second time, they interviewed the man who had been blind and said, "Give God the praise: we know that the man who did this act is a man of sin."
9:25 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.
25 "Whether He is a sinner or not, I do not know," he replied; "What I do know is I was once blind and now I see."
9:26 Then said they to him again, What did he to you? how opened he your eyes?
26 "What did He do to you?" they asked again; "How did He open your eyes?"
9:27 He answered them, I have told you already, and all of you did not hear: wherefore would all of you hear it again? will all of you also be his disciples?
27 "I have told you already," he replied, "and you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to be His disciples?"
9:28 Then they reviled him, and said, You are his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
28 Then they turned on him and said, "You are that man's disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.
9:29 We know that God spoke unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
29 We know that God spoke to Moses; but as for this man we do not know where He comes from."
9:30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that all of you know not from whence he is, and yet he has opened mine eyes.
30 "What a wonder!" the man replied; "You do not know where He comes from, and yet He has opened my eyes!
9:31 Now we know that God hears not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and does his will, him he hears.
31 We know that God does not listen to sinful people, but that if anyone is God-fearing and does HIS will, God will listen.
9:32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
32 From the beginning of the world such a thing has never been heard of as to how anyone could open the eyes of a man blind from his birth.
9:33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
33 Unless this man came from God, He would not be able to do anything."
9:34 They answered and said unto him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.
34 "You," they replied, "were entirely born in sin, and you try to teach us?" And they put him out of the synagogue.
9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Do you believe on the Son of God?
35 Jesus heard that they had turned the man out. So, having found him, He asked him, "Do you believe in the Son of God?"
9:36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
36 "Who is He, Master?" answered the man. "Tell me, so that I may believe in Him."
9:37 And Jesus said unto him, You have both seen him, and it is he that talks with you.
37 Jesus said, "You both see Him and hear Him: He is the One speaking to you."
9:38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
38 "I believe, Master," he said. And he threw himself down in reverence.
No divine protest here.
9:39 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.
39 "I came into this world," said Jesus, "for judgment, that those who do not see might see, and those who do see might become blind."
9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
40 These words were heard by the Pharisees who were present, and they asked Him, "Are we blind also?"
9:41 Jesus said unto them, If all of you were blind, all of you should have no sin: but now all of you say, We see; therefore your sin remains.
41 "If you were blind," answered Jesus, "you would have no sin; but now you boast, `We see.´ Therefore your sin remains!"
