4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.
4 We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
6 Having said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay from the saliva; and He applied the clay on the eyes of the blind [man].
6 When he had said these things, he spat on the ground, and he made clay from the spittle, and he smeared the clay over his eyes.
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 He said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam"(which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
7 and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
7 Then he said to him, Go and wash in the baptismal pool of Siloam. He went and washed, and he came seeing.
8 Therefore the neighbors and those who previously saw him, that he was blind, were saying, "Is not this he who sat and begged?"
8 And so the bystanders and those who had seen him before, when he was a beggar, said, “Is this not the one who was sitting and begging?” Some said, “This is he.”
8 His neighbors and those who had seen him before begging, said, Is not this he who used to sit down and beg?
9 Some said, "This is he."Others said, "He looks like him."He kept saying, "I am [he]."
9 But others said, “Certainly not, but he is similar to him.” Yet truly, he himself said, “I am he.”
10 Therefore they said to him, "How were your eyes opened?"
10 They said therefore unto him, How then were thine eyes opened?
11 He answered and said, "A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, 'Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.' When I had gone and washed, I received [my ]sight."
12 Then they said to him, "Where is He?"He said, "I do not know."
12 And they said unto him, Where is he? He saith, I know not.
13 They brought him who was once blind to the Pharisees.
13 They bring to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
13 So they brought to the Pharisees him who had been blind from his birth.
14 Now it was a Sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
15 Then again the Pharisees were asking him how he received [his] sight. And he said to them, "He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see."
15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. And he said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and I see.
15 Again the Pharisees asked him, How did you receive your sight? He said to them, He placed clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.
16 Therefore some of the Pharisees were saying, "This Man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath."Others said, "How can a sinful man do such signs?"And there was a division among them.
16 And so certain Pharisees said: “This man, who does not keep the Sabbath, is not from God.” But others said, “How could a sinful man accomplish these signs?” And there was a schism among them.
16 Then some of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he does not observe the sabbath; others said, How can a man who is a sinner do these miracles? And there was a division among them.
17 They said to the blind [man] again, "What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?"He said, "He is a prophet."
17 They say therefore unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, in that he opened thine eyes? And he said, He is a prophet.
17 Therefore, they spoke again to the blind man, “What do you say about him who opened your eyes?” Then he said, “He is a Prophet.”
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he was blind and received [his] sight, until they called the parents of him who had received [his] sight.
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 that had received his sight,
18 Therefore, the Jews did not believe, about him, that he had been blind and had seen, until they called the parents of him who had seen.
19 And they asked them, saying, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"
19 And they questioned them, saying: “Is this your son, whom you say was born blind? Then how is it that he now sees?”
20 And his parents answered them and said, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
20 His parents responded to them and said: “We know that this is our son and that he was born blind.
21 but how he now sees we do not know, or who opened his eyes we do not know. He is of age; ask him. He will speak for himself."
21 But how it is that he now sees, we do not know. And who opened his eyes, we do not know. Ask him. He is old enough. Let him speak for himself.”
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 things[ ]his parents said because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had agreed already that if anyone should confess that He was Christ, he would be excommunicated.
22 His parents said these things because they were afraid of the Jews. For the Jews had already conspired, so that if anyone were to confess him to be the Christ, he would be expelled from the synagogue.
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 On account of this his parents said, "He is of age; ask him."
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
23 It was for this reason that his parents said: “He is old enough. Ask him.”
24 Therefore they called a second time the man who was blind, and said to him, "Give glory to God! We know that this Man is a sinner."
24 So they called a second time the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner.
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 is a sinner or not I do not know. One [thing] I do know: that although I was blind, now I see."
25 He therefore answered, Whether he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
25 And so he said to them: “If he is a sinner, I do not know it. One thing I do know, that although I was blind, now I see.”
26 Then they said to him again, "What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?"
26 They said therefore unto him, What did he to thee? How opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, "I told you already, and you did not listen. Why do you wish to hear [it] again? Do you also want to become His disciples?"
27 He said to them, I have already told you, and you did not listen; why do you want to hear it again? why, do you also want to become his disciples?
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, "You are His disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.
28 Therefore, they cursed him and said: “You be his disciple. But we are disciples of Moses.
29 We know that God has spoken to Moses; but [as for ]this [Man], we do not know where He is from."
30 The man answered and said to them, "Why, this is a remarkable thing, that you do not know where He is from; yet He opened my eyes!
31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.
31 We know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and do his will, him he heareth.
32 Since eternity past it was unheard of that anyone opened the eyes of [one] having been born blind.
32 From ages it has never been heard that a man opened the eyes of one who was born blind.
33 If this [Man] were not from God, He could do nothing."
33 Unless this man were of God, he would not be able to do any such thing.”
34 They answered and said to him, "You were completely born in sins, and do you teach us?"And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and having found him, He said to him, "Do you believe in the Son of God?"
36 He answered and said, "And who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?"
36 He who was healed answered and said, Who is he, my Lord, so that I may believe in him?
37 And Jesus said to him, "You have both seen Him and it is He who is speaking with you."
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee.
38 Then he said, "Lord, I believe!"And he worshipped Him.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
38 He said, I do believe, my Lord; and he fell down and worshipped him.
39 And Jesus said, "For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see might become blind."
39 Then Jesus said to him, I have come for the judgment of this world, so that those who cannot see may see, and those who see may become blind.
40 Then [some] of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things, and said to Him, "Are we blind also?"
40 And certain Pharisees, who were with him, heard this, and they said to him, “Are we also blind?”
41 Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains.
