29Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho. A large crowd followed him. 30Two blind men were sitting by the side of the road. They heard that Jesus was going by. So they shouted, "Lord! Son of David! Have mercy on us!" 31The crowd commanded them to stop. They told them to be quiet. But the two men shouted even louder, "Lord! Son of David! Have mercy on us!" 32Jesus stopped and called out to them. "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. 33"Lord," they answered, "we want to be able to see." 34Jesus felt deep concern for them. He touched their eyes. Right away they could see. And they followed him.
