1 And as Jesus
passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin,
this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents:
but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
the night cometh, when no man can work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 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
7 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.
8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him
that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 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.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and
opened his eyes.
15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received
his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and
I washed, and do see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of
God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How
can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a
division among them.
17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him,
that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had
been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents
of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say
was born blind? how then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is
our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath
opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall
speak for himself.
22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews:
for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess
that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto
him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know
not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened
he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not
hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his
28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but
we are Moses' disciples.
29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we
know not from whence he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous
thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened
31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man
be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened
the eyes of one that was born blind.
33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born
in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found
him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it
is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that
they which see not might see; and that they which see might
be made blind.
40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these
words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no
sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
1 Verily, verily,
I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold,
but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and
he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them,
and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him:
for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not
what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but
the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and
to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life
for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own
the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep,
and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth
not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and
I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them
also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall
be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life,
that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I
have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.
This commandment have I received of my Father.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these
20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear
21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil.
Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and
it was winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How
long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the
works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I
said unto you.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no
man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30 I and my Father are one.
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from
my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee
not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man,
makest thyself God.
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said,
Ye are gods?
35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and
the scripture cannot be broken;
36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent
into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son
37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works:
that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and
I in him.
39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out
of their hand,
40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John
at first baptized; and there he abode.
41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle:
but all things that John spake of this man were true.
42 And many believed on him there.
