John 9:1-12Modern English Version (MEV)

The Healing of a Man Born Blind

As Jesus passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned. But it happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. I must do the works of Him who sent Me while it is day. Night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

When He had said this, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva. He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means “Sent”). So he went away and washed, and returned seeing.

The neighbors and those who had previously seen that he was blind said, “Is this not he who sat and begged?” Some said, “This is he.”

Others said, “He is like him.”

But he said, “I am he.”

10 So they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?”

11 He answered, “A Man called Jesus made clay, anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went away and washed, and I received my sight.”

12 They said to him, “Where is He?”

He said, “I do not know.”
