 New English Bible John:9Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 AS HE WENT on his way Jesus saw a man blind from his birth. The Healing of a Man Born Blind Jn.9.1-12 (Jerusalem) - Καὶ παράγων εἶδεν ἄνθρωπον τυφλὸν ἐκ γενετῆς.
2 His disciples put the question, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents? Why was he born blind?'  καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτὸν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ λέγοντες, Ῥαββί, τίς ἡμαρτεν, οὗτος ἢ οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ, ἵνα τυφλὸς γεννηθῇ;
3 'It is not that this man or his parents sinned,' Jesus answered; 'he was born blind that God's power might be displayed in curing him.  ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς, Οὐτε οὗτος ἡμαρτεν οὐτε οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ, ἀλλ' ἵνα φανερωθῇ τὰ ἐργα τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ.
4 While daylight lasts we [Some witnesses read: I] must carry on the work of him who sent me, night comes, when no one can work.  ἡμᾶς δεῖ ἐργάζεσθαι τὰ ἐργα τοῦ πέμψαντός με ἑως ἡμέρα ἐστίν· ἐρχεται νὺξ ὅτε οὐδεὶς δύναται ἐργάζεσθαι.
5 While I am in the world I am the light of the world.'
 ὁταν ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ὦ, φῶς εἰμι τοῦ κόσμου.
6 With these words he spat on the ground and made a paste with the spittle; he spread it on the man's eyes,  ταῦτα εἰπὼν ἐπτυσεν χαμαὶ καὶ ἐποίησεν πηλὸν ἐκ τοῦ πτύσματος, καὶ ἐπέχρισεν αὐτοῦ τὸν πηλὸν ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς
7 and said to him, 'Go and wash in the pool of Siloam.' (The name means 'sent'.) The man went away and washed, and when he returned he could see.
 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Ὕπαγε νίψαι εἰς τὴν κολυμβήθραν τοῦ Σιλωάμ ὃ ἑρμηνεύεται Ἀπεσταλμένος. ἀπῆλθεν οὖν καὶ ἐνίψατο, καὶ ἦλθεν βλέπων.
8 His neighbours and those who were accustomed to see him begging said, 'Is not this the man who used to sit and beg?'  Οἱ οὖν γείτονες καὶ οἱ θεωροῦντες αὐτὸν τὸ πρότερον ὅτι προσαίτης ἦν ἐλεγον, Οὐχ οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ καθήμενος καὶ προσαιτῶν;
9 Others said, 'Yes, this is the man.' Others again said, 'No, but it is someone like him.'  ἀλλοι ἐλεγον ὅτι Οὗτός ἐστιν· ἀλλοι ἐλεγον, Οὐχί, ἀλλὰ ὁμοιος αὐτῷ ἐστιν. ἐκεῖνος ἐλεγεν ὅτι Ἐγώ εἰμι.
10 The man himself said, 'I am the man.' They asked him, 'How were your eyes opened?'  ἐλεγον οὖν αὐτῷ, Πῶς [οὖν] ἠνεῴχθησάν σου οἱ ὀφθαλμοί;
11 He replied, 'The man called Jesus made a paste and smeared my eyes with it, and told me to go to Siloam and wash. I went and washed, and gained my sight.'  ἀπεκρίθη ἐκεῖνος, Ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὁ λεγόμενος Ἰησοῦς πηλὸν ἐποίησεν καὶ ἐπέχρισέν μου τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς καὶ εἶπέν μοι ὅτι Ὕπαγε εἰς τὸν Σιλωὰμ καὶ νίψαι· ἀπελθὼν οὖν καὶ νι ψάμενος ἀνέβλεψα.
12 'Where is he?' they asked. He answered, 'I do not know.'
 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ, Ποῦ ἐστιν ἐκεῖνος; λέγει, Οὐκ οἶδα.
13 THE MAN who had been blind was brought before the Pharisees. The Pharisees Investigate the Healing Jn.9.13-34 (Jerusalem) - Ἄγουσιν αὐτὸν πρὸς τοὺς Φαρισαίους τόν ποτε τυφλόν.
14 As it was a Sabbath day when Jesus made the paste and opened his eyes,  ἦν δὲ σάββατον ἐν ᾗ ἡμέρᾳ τὸν πηλὸν ἐποίησεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ ἀνέῳξεν αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς.
15 the Pharisees now asked him by what means he had gained his sight. The man told them, 'He spread a paste on my eyes; then I washed, and now I can see.'  πάλιν οὖν ἠρώτων αὐτὸν καὶ οἱ Φαρισαῖοι πῶς ἀνέβλεψεν. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Πηλὸν ἐπέθηκέν μου ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς, καὶ ἐνιψάμην, καὶ βλέπω.
16 Some of the Pharisees said, 'This fellow is no man of God; he does not keep the Sabbath.' Others said, 'How could such signs come from a sinful man?' So they took different sides.  ἐλεγον οὖν ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων τινές, Οὐκ ἐστιν οὗτος παρὰ θεοῦ ὁ ἄνθρωπος, ὅτι τὸ σάββατον οὐ τηρεῖ. ἀλλοι [δὲ] ἐλεγον, Πῶς δύναται ἄνθρωπος ἀμαρτωλὸς τοιαῦτα σημεῖα πο ιεῖν; καὶ σχίσμα ἦν ἐν αὐτοῖς.
17 Then they continued to question him: 'What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened.' He answered, 'He is a prophet.'  λέγουσιν οὖν τῷ τυφλῷ πάλιν, Τί σὺ λέγεις περὶ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἠνέῳξέν σου τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς; ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ὅτι Προφήτης ἐστίν.
18 The Jews would not believe that the man had been blind and had gained his sight, until they had summoned his parents  Οὐκ ἐπίστευσαν οὖν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι περὶ αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἦν τυφλὸς καὶ ἀνέβλεψεν, ἑως ὁτου ἐφώνησαν τοὺς γονεῖς αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἀναβλέψαντος
19 and questioned them: 'Is this man your son? Do you say that he was born blind? How is it that he can see now?'  καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτοὺς λέγοντες, Οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς ὑμῶν, ὃν ὑμεῖς λέγετε ὅτι τυφλὸς ἐγεννήθὴ πῶς οὖν βλέπει ἀρτὶ;
20 The parents replied, 'We know that he is our son, and that he was born blind.  ἀπεκρίθησαν οὖν οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν, Οἴδαμεν ὅτι οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς ἡμῶν καὶ ὅτι τυφλὸς ἐγεννήθη·
21 But how it is that he can now see, or who opened his eyes, we do not know. Ask him; he is of age; he will speak for himself.'  πῶς δὲ νῦν βλέπει οὐκ οἰδαμεν, ἢ τίς ἠνοιξεν αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ἡμεῖς οὐκ οἰδαμεν· αὐτὸν ἐρωτήσατε, ἡλικίαν ἐχει, αὐτὸς περὶ ἑαυτοῦ λαλήσει.
22 His parents gave this answer because they were afraid of the Jews; for the Jewish authorities had already agreed that anyone who acknowledged Jesus as Messiah should be banned from the synagogue.  ταῦτα εἶπαν οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐφοβοῦντο τοὺς Ἰουδαίους, ἠδη γὰρ συνετέθειντο οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι ἵνα ἐάν τις αὐτὸν ὁμολογήσῃ Χριστόν, ἀποσυνάγωγος γένηται.
23 That is why the parents said, 'He is of age; ask him.'
 διὰ τοῦτο οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ εἶπαν ὅτι Ἡλικίαν ἐχει, αὐτὸν ἐπερωτήσατε.
24 So for the second time they summoned the man who had been blind, and said, 'Speak the truth before God. We know that this fellow is a sinner.'  Ἐφώνησαν οὖν τὸν ἄνθρωπον ἐκ δευτέρου ὃς ἦν τυφλὸς καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ, Δὸς δόξαν τῷ θεῷ· ἡμεῖς οἰδαμεν ὅτι οὗτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἀμαρτωλός ἐστιν.
25 'Whether or not he is a sinner, I do not know', the man replied. 'All I know is this: once I was blind, now I can see.'  ἀπεκρίθη οὖν ἐκεῖνος, Εἰ ἀμαρτωλός ἐστιν οὐκ οἶδα· ἓν οἶδα, ὅτι τυφλὸς ὢν ἀρτι βλέπω.
26 'What did he do to you?' they asked. 'How did he open your eyes?'  εἶπον οὖν αὐτῷ, Τί ἐποίησέν σοὶ πῶς ἠνοιξέν σου τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς;
27 'I have told you already,' he retorted, 'but you took no notice. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples?'  ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς, Εἶπον ὑμῖν ἠδη καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατε· τί πάλιν θέλετε ἀκούειν; μὴ καὶ ὑμεῖς θέλετε αὐτοῦ μαθηταὶ γενέσθαὶ;
28 Then they became abusive. 'You are that man's disciple,' they said, 'but we are disciples of Moses.  καὶ ἐλοιδόρησαν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπον, Σὺ μαθητὴς εἶ ἐκείνου, ἡμεῖς δὲ τοῦ Μωϋσέως ἐσμὲν μαθηταί·
29 We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we do not know where he comes from.'
 ἡμεῖς οἰδαμεν ὅτι Μωϋσεῖ λελάληκεν ὁ θεός, τοῦτον δὲ οὐκ οἰδαμεν πόθεν ἐστίν.
30 The man replied, 'What an extraordinary thing! Here is a man who has opened my eyes, yet you do not know where he comes from!  ἀπεκρίθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Ἐν τούτῳ γὰρ τὸ θαυμαστόν ἐστιν ὅτι ὑμεῖς οὐκ οἰδατε πόθεν ἐστίν, καὶ ἠνοιξέν μου τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς.
31 It is common knowledge that God does not listen to sinners; he listens to anyone who is devout and obeys his will.  οἰδαμεν ὅτι ἀμαρτωλῶν ὁ θεὸς οὐκ ἀκούει, ἀλλ' ἐάν τις θεοσεβὴς ᾖ καὶ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ποιῇ τούτου ἀκούει.
32 To open the eyes of a man born blind—it is unheard of since time began.  ἐκ τοῦ αἰῶνος οὐκ ἠκούσθη ὅτι ἠνέῳξέν τις ὀφθαλμοὺς τυφλοῦ γεγεννημένου·
33 If that man had not come from God he could have done nothing.'  εἰ μὴ ἦν οὗτος παρὰ θεοῦ, οὐκ ἠδύνατο ποιεῖν οὐδέν.
34 'Who are you to give us lessons,' they retorted, 'born and bred in sin as you are?' Then they expelled him from the synagogue.
 ἀπεκρίθησαν καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ, Ἐν ἀμαρτίαις σὺ ἐγεννήθης ὁλος, καὶ σὺ διδάσκεις ἡμᾶς; καὶ ἐξέβαλον αὐτὸν ἐξω.
35 Jesus heard that they had expelled him. When he found him he asked, 'Have you faith in the Son of Man?' [Some witnesses read: Son of God.] Spiritual Blindness  Jn.9.35-41 (Jerusalem) - Ἤκουσεν Ἰησοῦς ὅτι ἐξέβαλον αὐτὸν ἐξω, καὶ εὑρὼν αὐτὸν εἶπεν, Σὺ πιστεύεις εἰς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώποὺ;
36 The man answered, 'Tell me who he is, sir, that I should put my faith in him.'  ἀπεκρίθη ἐκεῖνος καὶ εἶπεν, Καὶ τίς ἐστιν, κύριε, ἵνα πιστεύσω εἰς αὐτόν;
37 'You have seen him,' said Jesus; 'indeed, it is he who is speaking to you.'  εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Καὶ ἑώρακας αὐτὸν καὶ ὁ λαλῶν μετὰ σοῦ ἐκεῖνός ἐστιν.
38 'Lord, I believe', he said, and bowed before him.  ὁ δὲ ἐφη, Πιστεύω, κύριε· καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῷ.
39 Jesus said, 'It is for judgement that I have come into this world—to give sight to the sightless and to make blind those who see.'  καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Εἰς κρίμα ἐγὼ εἰς τὸν κόσμον τοῦτον ἦλθον, ἵνα οἱ μὴ βλέποντες βλέπωσιν καὶ οἱ βλέποντες τυφλοὶ γένωνται.
40 Some Pharisees in his company asked, 'Do you mean that we are blind?'  Ἤκουσαν ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων ταῦτα οἱ μετ' αὐτοῦ ὄντες, καὶ εἶπον αὐτῷ, Μὴ καὶ ἡμεῖς τυφλοί ἐσμεν;
41 'If you were blind,' said Jesus, 'you would not be guilty, but because you say "We see"; your guilt remains.
 εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Εἰ τυφλοὶ ἦτε, οὐκ ἂν εἰχετε ἀμαρτίαν· νῦν δὲ λέγετε ὅτι Βλέπομεν· ἡ ἀμαρτία ὑμῶν μένει.
