9 Revised Standard Version Passage

1As he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth.The Healing of a Man Born Blind Jn.9.1-12 (Jerusalem)
2And his disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" 
3Jesus answered, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest in him. 
4We must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day; night comes, when no one can work. 
5As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." 
6As he said this, he spat on the ground and made clay of the spittle and anointed the man's eyes with the clay, 
7saying to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Silo'am" (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing. 
8The neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar, said, "Is not this the man who used to sit and beg?" 
9Some said, "It is he"; others said, "No, but he is like him." He said, "I am the man." 
10They said to him, "Then how were your eyes opened?" 
11He answered, "The man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, 'Go to Silo'am and wash'; so I went and washed and received my sight." 
12They said to him, "Where is he?" He said, "I do not know."
