John 9:1-12 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And Jesus passing, saw a man blind from the birth.

And his disciples asked him, Master, who sinned, this man, or his elders [And his disciples asked him, Rabbi, that is, Master, who sinned, this man, or his father and mother], that he should be born blind?

Jesus answered, Neither this man sinned, neither his elders [neither his father and mother]; but that the works of God be showed in him.

It behooveth me to work the works of him that sent me, as long as the day is [the while the day is]; the night shall come, when no man may work.

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

When he had said these things, he spat into the earth, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed the clay on his eyes,

and said to him, Go, and be thou washed in the water of Siloam, that is to say, Sent. Then he went, and washed, and came seeing. [and said to him, Go, and be thou washen in the water, or cistern, of Siloam, that is interpreted, Sent. Therefore he went, and washed, and came seeing.]

And so neighbours, and they that had seen him before, for he was a beggar, said, Whether this is not he, that sat, and begged?

Other men said, That this it is; and other men said, Nay, but he is like him. But he said, I am [he].

10 Therefore they said to him, How be thine eyes opened?

11 He answered, That man, that is said Jesus, made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said to me, Go thou to the water of Siloam, and wash [Go thou to the water, or cistern, of Siloam, and wash]; and I went, and washed, and saw.

12 And they said to him, Where is he? He said, I know not.

John 9:1-12 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Christ makes the man who was born blind able to see.

And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin: this man, or his father and mother, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither has this man sinned, nor yet his father and mother, but it is so that the works of God may be shown on him. I must work the works of him that sent me while it is day. The night comes, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

As soon as he had thus spoken, 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, Go and wash in the pool of Siloam (which translated, means Sent). He went his way and washed, and came back seeing. The neighbours and people that had seen him before, how he was a beggar, said, Is this not the man who sat and begged? Some said, This is the man. Others said, He is like him. But he himself said, I am he.

10 They said to him, How were your eyes opened then? 11 He answered and said, The man that is called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to the pool Siloam and wash. And I went and washed, and received my sight.

12 They said to him, Where is he? He said, I do not know.

John 9:1-12 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 Christ giveth sight on the Sabbath day, to him that was born blind. 13 Whom, after he had long reasoned against the Pharisees, 22, 35 and was cast out of the Synagogue, 36 Christ endueth with the knowledge of the everlasting light.

And [a]as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

Jesus answered, [b]Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents, but that the works of God should be showed on him.

[c]I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is [d]day: the night cometh when no man can work.

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

[e]As soon as he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed the eyes of the blind with the clay,

And said unto him, Go wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore and washed, and came again seeing.

[f]Now the neighbors and they that had seen him before, when he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

Some said, This is he: and others said, He is like him: but he himself said, I am he.

10 Therefore they said unto him, How were thine eyes [g]opened?

11 He answered, and said, The man that is called Jesus, made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and received sight.

12 Then they said unto him, Where is he? He said, I cannot tell.

Footnotes:

  1. John 9:1 Sin is the beginning even of all bodily diseases, and yet doth it not follow, that God always respecteth their sins, whom he most sharply punisheth.
  2. John 9:3 Christ reasoneth here, as his disciples thought, which presuppose that there come no diseases but for sins only: whereupon he answereth that there was another cause of this man’s blindness, and that was, that God’s his work might be seen.
  3. John 9:4 The works of Christ are as it were a light, which lighten the darkness of the world.
  4. John 9:4 By (day) is meant the light, that is, the lightsome, doctrine of the heavenly truth: and by (night) is meant the darkness which cometh by the obscurity of the same doctrine.
  5. John 9:6 Christ healing the man born blind, by taking the sign of clay, and afterward the sign of the fountain of Siloam (which signifieth Sent) showeth that as he at the beginning made man, so doth he again restore both his body and soul: and yet so, that he himself cometh first of his own accord to heal us.
  6. John 9:8 A true image of all men, who as they are of nature blind, do neither themselves receive the light that is offered unto them, nor suffer it in others, and yet make a great ado amongst themselves.
  7. John 9:10 This is an Hebrew kind of speech, for they call a man’s eyes shut, when they cannot receive any light: And therefore they are said to have their eyes opened, which of blind men are made to see.

John 9:1-12 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 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, and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he. 10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? 11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. 12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
