Matthew 20:29-34 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

29 And when they went out of Jericho, much people followed him. [And they going out of Jericho, many companies followed him.]

30 And lo! two blind men sat beside the way, and heard that Jesus passed; and they cried, and said, Lord, the son of David, have mercy on us. [And lo! two blind men sitting beside the way, heard that Jesus passed; and they cried, saying, Lord, the son of David, have mercy on us.]

31 And the people blamed them, that they should be still; and they cried the more, and said, Lord, the son of David, have mercy on us. [Forsooth the company blamed them, that they should be still; and they cried more, saying, Lord, the son of David, have mercy on us.]

32 And Jesus stood, and called them, and said, What will ye, that I do to you?

33 They say to him, Lord, that our eyes be opened.

34 And Jesus had mercy on them, and touched their eyes; and at once [and anon] they saw, and followed him.

Matthew 20:29-34 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

29 And as they departed from Jericho, crowds of people followed Jesus. 30 And two blind men sitting by the wayside, when they heard Jesus pass by, cried out, saying, Lord Son of David, have mercy on us! 31 And the people admonished them to hold their peace. But they cried out all the more, saying, Have mercy on us, Lord Son of David!

32 Then Jesus stood still and called them, and said, What do you want me to do for you? 33 They said to him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened! 34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes, and immediately their eyes received sight. And they followed him.
