John 9 (WEBP)

[1] As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.
[2] His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
[3] Jesus answered, “This man didn’t sin, nor did his parents, but that the works of God might be revealed in him.
[4] I must work the works of him who sent me while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work.
[5] While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
[6] When he had said this, he spat on the ground, made mud with the saliva, anointed the blind man’s eyes with the mud,
[7] and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means “Sent”). So he went away, washed, and came back seeing.
[8] Therefore the neighbors and those who saw that he was blind before said, “Isn’t this he who sat and begged?”
[9] Others were saying, “It is he.” Still others were saying, “He looks like him.” He said, “I am he.”
[10] They therefore were asking him, “How were your eyes opened?”
[11] He answered, “A man called Jesus made mud, anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went away and washed, and I received sight.”
[12] Then they asked him, “Where is he?” He said, “I don’t know.”
[13] They brought him who had been blind to the Pharisees.
[14] It was a Sabbath when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes.
[15] Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. He said to them, “He put mud on my eyes, I washed, and I see.”
[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?” So there was division among them.
[17] Therefore they asked the blind man again, “What do you say about him, because he opened your eyes?” He said, “He is a prophet.”
[18] The Jews therefore didn’t 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,
[19] and asked them, “Is this your son, whom you say was born blind? How then does he now see?”
[20] His parents answered them, “We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
[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.”
[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.
[23] Therefore his parents said, “He is of age. Ask him.”
[24] So they called the man who was blind a second time, and said to him, “Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.”
[25] He therefore answered, “I don’t know if he is a sinner. One thing I do know: that though I was blind, now I see.”
[26] They said to him again, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?”
[27] He answered them, “I told you already, and you didn’t listen. Why do you want to hear it again? You don’t also want to become his disciples, do you?”
[28] They insulted him and said, “You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.
[29] We know that God has spoken to Moses. But as for this man, we don’t know where he comes from.”
[30] The man answered them, “How amazing! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.
[31] We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, he listens to him.
[32] Since the world began it has never been heard of that anyone opened the eyes of someone born blind.
[33] If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.”
[34] They answered him, “You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us?” Then they threw him out.
[35] Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and finding him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of God?”
[36] He answered, “Who is he, Lord, that I may believe in him?”
[37] Jesus said to him, “You have both seen him, and it is he who speaks with you.”
[38] He said, “Lord, I believe!” and he worshiped him.
[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.”
[40] Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and 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.

John 9 (KJVS)

[1] And G2532 as [Jesus] passed by G3855 (PresActPtc), he saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) a man G444 which was blind G5185 from G1537 [his] birth G1079.
[2] And G2532 his G846 disciples G3101 asked G2065 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Master G4461, who G5101 did sin G264 (Aor2ActInd), this man G3778, or G2228 his G846 parents G1118, that G2443 he was born G1080 (AorPasSubj) blind G5185?
[3] Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd), Neither G3777 hath G264 this man G3778 sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd), nor G3777 his G846 parents G1118: but G235 that G2443 the works G2041 of God G2316 should be made manifest G5319 (AorPasSubj) in G1722 him G846.
[4] I G1691 must G1163 (PresInd) work G2038 (PresMidPasDepInf) the works G2041 of him that sent G3992 (AorActPtc) me G3165, while G2193 it is G2076 (PresInd) day G2250: the night G3571 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), when G3753 no man G3762 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) work G2038 (PresMidPasDepInf).
[5] As long as G3752 I am G5600 (PresSubj) in G1722 the world G2889, I am G1510 (PresInd) the light G5457 of the world G2889.
[6] When he had thus G5023 spoken G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), he spat G4429 (AorActInd) on the ground G5476, and G2532 made G4160 (AorActInd) clay G4081 of G1537 the spittle G4427, and G2532 he anointed G2025 (AorActInd) G1909 the eyes G3788 of the blind man G5185 with the clay G4081,
[7] And G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Go G5217 (PresActImpr), wash G3538 (AorMidImpr) in G1519 the pool G2861 of Siloam G4611, (which G3739 is by interpretation G2059 (PresPasInd), Sent G649 (PerfPasPtc).) He went his way G565 (Aor2ActInd) therefore G3767, and G2532 washed G3538 (AorMidInd), and G2532 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) seeing G991 (PresActPtc).
[8] The neighbours G1069 therefore G3767, and G2532 they which before G4386 had seen G2334 (PresActPtc) him G846 that G3754 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) blind G5185, said G3004 (ImpfActInd), Is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 this G3778 he that sat G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc) and G2532 begged G4319 (PresActPtc)?
[9] Some G243 said G3004 (ImpfActInd), G3754 This G3778 is he G2076 (PresInd): G1161 others G243 [said], G3754 He is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 him G846: [but] he G1565 said G3004 (ImpfActInd), G3754 I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) [he].
[10] Therefore G3767 said they G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto him G846, How G4459 were G455 thine G4675 eyes G3788 opened G455 (AorPasInd)?
[11] He G1565 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), A man G444 that is called G3004 (PresPasPtc) Jesus G2424 made G4160 (AorActInd) clay G4081, and G2532 anointed G2025 (AorActInd) mine G3450 eyes G3788, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto me G3427, Go G5217 (PresActImpr) to G1519 the pool G2861 of Siloam G4611, and G2532 wash G3538 (AorMidImpr): and G1161 I went G565 (Aor2ActPtc) and G2532 washed G3538 (AorMidPtc), and I received sight G308 (AorActInd).
[12] Then G3767 said they G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Where G4226 is G2076 (PresInd) he G1565? He said G3004 (PresActInd), I know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756.
[13] They brought G71 (PresActInd) to G4314 the Pharisees G5330 him G846 that aforetime G4218 was blind G5185.
[14] And G1161 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) the sabbath day G4521 when G3753 Jesus G2424 made G4160 (AorActInd) the clay G4081, and G2532 opened G455 (AorActInd) his G846 eyes G3788.
[15] Then G3767 again G3825 the Pharisees G5330 also G2532 asked G2065 (ImpfActInd) him G846 how G4459 he had received his sight G308 (AorActInd). G1161 He said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, He put G2007 (AorActInd) clay G4081 upon G1909 mine G3450 eyes G3788, and G2532 I washed G3538 (AorMidInd), and G2532 do see G991 (PresActInd).
[16] Therefore G3767 said G3004 (ImpfActInd) some G5100 of G1537 the Pharisees G5330, This G3778 man G444 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 of G3844 God G2316, because G3754 he keepeth G5083 (PresActInd) not G3756 the sabbath day G4521. Others G243 said G3004 (ImpfActInd), How G4459 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) a man G444 that is a sinner G268 do G4160 (PresActInf) such G5108 miracles G4592? And G2532 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) a division G4978 among G1722 them G846.
[17] They say G3004 (PresActInd) unto the blind man G5185 again G3825, What G5101 sayest G3004 (PresActInd) thou G4771 of G4012 him G846, that G3754 he hath opened G455 (AorActInd) thine G4675 eyes G3788? He said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), G3754 G1161 He is G2076 (PresInd) a prophet G4396.
[18] But G3767 the Jews G2453 did G4100 not G3756 believe G4100 (AorActInd) concerning G4012 him G846, that G3754 he had been G2258 (ImpfInd) blind G5185, and G2532 received his sight G308 (AorActInd), until G2193 G3755 they called G5455 (AorActInd) the parents G1118 of him G846 that had received his sight G308 (AorActPtc).
[19] And G2532 they asked G2065 (AorActInd) them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Is G2076 (PresInd) this G3778 your G5216 son G5207, who G3739 ye G5210 say G3004 (PresActInd) G3754 was born G1080 (AorPasInd) blind G5185? how G4459 then G3767 doth he G991 now G737 see G991 (PresActInd)?
[20] His G846 parents G1118 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846 and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), We know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 this G3778 is G2076 (PresInd) our G2257 son G5207, and G2532 that G3754 he was born G1080 (AorPasInd) blind G5185:
[21] But G1161 by what means G4459 he G991 now G3568 seeth G991 (PresActInd), we know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756; or G2228 who G5101 hath opened G455 (AorActInd) his G846 eyes G3788, we G2249 know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756: he G846 is G2192 (PresActInd) of age G2244; ask G2065 (AorActImpr) him G846: he G846 shall speak G2980 (FutActInd) for G4012 himself G848.
[22] These G5023 [words] spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) his G846 parents G1118, because G3754 they feared G5399 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) the Jews G2453: for G1063 the Jews G2453 had agreed G4934 (PlupfMidInd) already G2235, that G2443 if G1437 any man G5100 did confess G3670 (AorActSubj) that he G846 was Christ G5547, he should be G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) put out of the synagogue G656.
[23] Therefore G1223 G5124 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) his G846 parents G1118, G3754 He is G2192 (PresActInd) of age G2244; ask G2065 (AorActImpr) him G846.
[24] Then G3767 again G1208 G1537 called they G5455 (AorActInd) the man G444 that G3739 was G2258 (ImpfInd) blind G5185, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Give G1325 (Aor2ActImpr) God G2316 the praise G1391: we G2249 know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 this G3778 man G444 is G2076 (PresInd) a sinner G268.
[25] G3767 He G1565 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Whether G1487 he be G2076 (PresInd) a sinner G268 [or no], I know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756: one thing G1520 I know G1492 (PerfActInd), that G3754, whereas I was G5607 (PresPtc) blind G5185, now G737 I see G991 (PresActInd).
[26] Then G1161 said they G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to him G846 again G3825, What G5101 did he G4160 (AorActInd) to thee G4671? how G4459 opened he G455 (AorActInd) thine G4675 eyes G3788?
[27] He answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) them G846, I have told G2036 (Aor2ActInd) you G5213 already G2235, and G2532 ye did G191 not G3756 hear G191 (AorActInd): wherefore G5101 would G2309 (PresActInd) ye hear G191 (PresActInf) [it] again G3825? will G3361 G2309 (PresActInd) ye G5210 also G2532 be G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) his G846 disciples G3101?
[28] Then G3767 they reviled G3058 (AorActInd) him G846, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Thou G4771 art G1488 (PresInd) his G1565 disciple G3101; but G1161 we G2249 are G2070 (PresInd) Moses G3475’ disciples G3101.
[29] We G2249 know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 God G2316 spake G2980 (PerfActInd) unto Moses G3475: [as for] this G1161 G5126 [fellow], we know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756 from whence G4159 he is G2076 (PresInd).
[30] The man G444 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Why G1063 herein G1722 G5129 is G2076 (PresInd) a marvellous thing G2298, that G3754 ye G5210 know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756 from whence G4159 he is G2076 (PresInd), and G2532 [yet] he hath opened G455 (AorActInd) mine G3450 eyes G3788.
[31] Now G1161 we know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 God G2316 heareth G191 (PresActInd) not G3756 sinners G268: but G235 if G1437 any man G5100 be G5600 (PresSubj) a worshipper of God G2318, and G2532 doeth G4160 (PresActSubj) his G846 will G2307, him G5127 he heareth G191 (PresActInd).
[32] Since G1537 the world began G165 was it G191 not G3756 heard G191 (AorPasInd) that G3754 any man G5100 opened G455 (AorActInd) the eyes G3788 of one that was born G1080 (PerfPasPtc) blind G5185.
[33] If G1508 this man G3778 were G2258 (ImpfInd) not G1508 of G3844 God G2316, he could G1410 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) G3756 do G4160 (PresActInf) nothing G3762.
[34] They answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Thou G4771 wast G1080 altogether G3650 born G1080 (AorPasInd) in G1722 sins G266, and G2532 dost thou G4771 teach G1321 (PresActInd) us G2248? And G2532 they cast G1544 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 out G1854.
[35] Jesus G2424 heard G191 (AorActInd) that G3754 they had cast G1544 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 out G1854; and G2532 when he had found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) him G846, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Dost G4100 thou G4771 believe G4100 (PresActInd) on G1519 the Son G5207 of God G2316?
[36] He G1565 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Who G5101 is he G2076 (PresInd), Lord G2962, that G2443 I might believe G4100 (AorActSubj) on G1519 him G846?
[37] And G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Thou hast G3708 both G2532 seen G3708 (PerfActInd) him G846, and G2532 it is G2076 (PresInd) he G1565 that talketh G2980 (PresActPtc) with G3326 thee G4675.
[38] And G1161 he said G5346 (ImpfInd), Lord G2962, I believe G4100 (PresActInd). And G2532 he worshipped G4352 (AorActInd) him G846.
[39] And G2532 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), For G1519 judgment G2917 I G1473 am come G2064 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 this G5126 world G2889, that G2443 they which see G991 (PresActPtc) not G3361 might see G991 (PresActSubj); and G2532 that they which see G991 (PresActPtc) might be made G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) blind G5185.
[40] And G2532 [some] of G1537 the Pharisees G5330 which G3588 were G5607 (PresPtc) with G3326 him G846 heard G191 (AorActInd) these words G5023, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Are G3361 G2070 (PresInd) we G2249 blind G5185 also G2532?
[41] Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, If G1487 ye were G2258 (ImpfInd) blind G5185, ye should G302 have G2192 (ImpfActInd) no G3756 sin G266: but G1161 now G3568 ye say G3004 (PresActInd), G3754 We see G991 (PresActInd); therefore G3767 your G5216 sin G266 remaineth G3306 (PresActInd).

Young’s Literal Translation

John 9 (YLT)

[1] And passing by, he saw a man blind from birth,
[2] and his disciples asked him, saying, ‘Rabbi, who did sin, this one or his parents, that he should be born blind?’
[3] Jesus answered, ‘Neither did this one sin nor his parents, but that the works of God may be manifested in him;
[4] it behoveth me to be working the works of Him who sent me while it is day; night doth come, when no one is able to work:-
[5] when I am in the world, I am a light of the world.’
[6] These things saying, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and rubbed the clay on the eyes of the blind man, and said to him,
[7] ‘Go away, wash at the pool of Siloam,’ which is, interpreted, Sent. He went away, therefore, and did wash, and came seeing;
[8] the neighbours, therefore, and those seeing him before, that he was blind, said, ‘Is not this he who is sitting and begging?’
[9] others said-‘This is he;’ and others-‘He is like to him;’ he himself said,-‘I am he.’
[10] They said, therefore, to him, ‘How were thine eyes opened?’
[11] he answered and said, ‘A man called Jesus made clay, and rubbed my eyes, and said to me, Go away to the pool of Siloam, and wash; and having gone away and having washed, I received sight;’
[12] they said, therefore, to him, ‘Where is that one?’ he saith, ‘I have not known.’
[13] They bring him to the Pharisees who once was blind,
[14] and it was a sabbath when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
[15] Again, therefore, the Pharisees also were asking him how he received sight, and he said to them, ‘Clay he did put upon my eyes, and I did wash-and I see.’
[16] Of the Pharisees, therefore, certain said, ‘This man is not from God, because the sabbath he doth not keep;’ others said, ‘How is a man-a sinful one-able to do such signs?’ and there was a division among them.
[17] They said to the blind man again, ‘Thou-what dost thou say of him-that he opened thine eyes?’
[18] and he said-‘He is a prophet.’ The Jews, therefore, did not believe concerning him that he was blind and did receive sight, till that they called the parents of him who received sight,
[19] and they asked them, saying, ‘Is your son, of whom ye say that he was born blind? how then now doth he see?’
[20] His parents answered them and said, ‘We have known that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
[21] and how he now seeth, we have not known; or who opened his eyes, we have not known; himself is of age, ask him; he himself shall speak concerning himself.’
[22] These things said his parents, because they were afraid of the Jews, for already had the Jews agreed together, that if any one may confess him-Christ, he may be put out of the synagogue;
[23] because of this his parents said-‘He is of age, ask him.’
[24] They called, therefore, a second time the man who was blind, and they said to him, ‘Give glory to God, we have known that this man is a sinner;’
[25] he answered, therefore, and said, ‘If he be a sinner-I have not known, one thing I have known, that, being blind, now I see.’
[26] And they said to him again, ‘What did he to thee? how did he open thine eyes?’
[27] He answered them, ‘I told you already, and ye did not hear; why again do ye wish to hear? do ye also wish to become his disciples?’
[28] They reviled him, therefore, and said, ‘Thou art his disciple, and we are Moses’ disciples;
[29] we have known that God hath spoken to Moses, but this one-we have not known whence he is.’
[30] The man answered and said to them, ‘Why, in this is a wonderful thing, that ye have not known whence he is, and he opened my eyes!
[31] and we have known that God doth not hear sinners, but, if any one may be a worshipper of God, and may do His will, him He doth hear;
[32] from the age it was not heard, that any one did open eyes of one who hath been born blind;
[33] if this one were not from God, he were not able to do anything.’
[34] They answered and said to him, ‘In sins thou wast born altogether, and thou dost teach us!’ and they cast him forth without.
[35] Jesus heard that they cast him forth without, and having found him, he said to him, ‘Dost thou believe in the Son of God?’
[36] he answered and said, ‘Who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?’
[37] And Jesus said to him, ‘Thou hast both seen him, and he who is speaking with thee is he;’
[38] and he said, ‘I believe, sir,’ and bowed before him.
