48 The Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.50 But I do not seek My glory; there is One who seeks and judges.51 Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he will never see death.”52 The Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets also; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste of death.’53 Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom do You make Yourself out to be?”54 Jesus answered, “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God’;55 and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be a liar like you, but I do know Him and keep His word.56 Your father Abraham rejoiced [a]to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”57 So the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham [b]was born, I am.”59 Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus [c]hid Himself and went out of the temple.
Healing the Man Born Blind
9 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth.2 And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?”3 Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him.4 We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; 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, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes,7 and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing.8 Therefore the neighbors, and those who previously saw him as a beggar, were saying, “Is not this the one who used to sit and beg?”9 Others were saying, “This is he,” still others were saying, “No, but he is like him.” [d]He kept saying, “I am the one.”10 So they were saying to him, “How then were your eyes opened?”11 He answered, “The man who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash’; so I went away and washed, and I received sight.”12 They said to him, “Where is He?” He *said, “I do not know.”
