22  Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and implored Him to touch him.

23  And having taken the hand of the blind [man], He led him outside the village, and having spit on his eyes, and having laid His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.

24  And when he looked up he said, "I see men like trees, walking."

24  And he looked up, and said, I see men; for I behold [them] as trees, walking.

24  And looking up, he said, “I see men but they are like walking trees.”

25  Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him to look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly again.

25  Next he placed his hands again over his eyes, and he began to see. And he was restored, so that he could see everything clearly.

25  Again he put his hands over his eyes, and he was restored, and saw everything clearly.

26  Then He sent him away to his house, saying, "Neither go into the village, nor tell anyone in the village."

26  And he sent him away to his home, saying, Do not even enter into the village.

26  And he sent him to his house, saying, “Go into your own house, and if you enter into the town, tell no one.”
