1As Jesus walked along, he saw a man who was blind from birth. 2Jesus’ disciples asked, "Rabbi, who sinned so that he was born blind, this man or his parents?" 3Jesus answered, "Neither he nor his parents. This happened so that God’s mighty works might be displayed in him. 4While it’s daytime, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming when no one can work. 5While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." 6After he said this, he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and smeared the mud on the man’s eyes. 7Jesus said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (this word means sent). So the man went away and washed. When he returned, he could see.
