John 9 - World English Bible with Greek
1 As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.
1 καὶ παράγων εἶδεν ἄνθρωπον τυφλὸν ἐκ γενετῆς.
2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
2 καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτὸν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ λέγοντες, ῥαββί, τίς ἥμαρτεν, οὖτος ἢ οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ, ἵνα τυφλὸς γεννηθῇ;
3 Jesus answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents; but, that the works of God might be revealed in him.
3 ἀπεκρίθη ἰησοῦς, οὔτε οὖτος ἥμαρτεν οὔτε οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ, ἀλλ᾽ ἵνα φανερωθῇ τὰ ἔργα τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν αὐτῶ.
4 I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work.
4 ἡμᾶς δεῖ ἐργάζεσθαι τὰ ἔργα τοῦ πέμψαντός με ἕως ἡμέρα ἐστίν· ἔρχεται νὺξ ὅτε οὐδεὶς δύναται ἐργάζεσθαι.
5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
5 ὅταν ἐν τῶ κόσμῳ ὦ, φῶς εἰμι τοῦ κόσμου.
6 When he had said this, he spat on the ground, made mud with the saliva, anointed the blind man's eyes with the mud,
6 ταῦτα εἰπὼν ἔπτυσεν χαμαὶ καὶ ἐποίησεν πηλὸν ἐκ τοῦ πτύσματος, καὶ ἐπέχρισεν αὐτοῦ τὸν πηλὸν ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς
7 and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which means "Sent"). So he went away, washed, and came back seeing.
7 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῶ, ὕπαγε νίψαι εἰς τὴν κολυμβήθραν τοῦ σιλωάμ ὃ ἑρμηνεύεται ἀπεσταλμένος. ἀπῆλθεν οὗν καὶ ἐνίψατο, καὶ ἦλθεν βλέπων.
8 The neighbors therefore, and those who saw that he was blind before, said, "Isn't this he who sat and begged?"
8 οἱ οὗν γείτονες καὶ οἱ θεωροῦντες αὐτὸν τὸ πρότερον ὅτι προσαίτης ἦν ἔλεγον, οὐχ οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ καθήμενος καὶ προσαιτῶν;
9 Others were saying, "It is he." Still others were saying, "He looks like him." He said, "I am he."
9 ἄλλοι ἔλεγον ὅτι οὖτός ἐστιν· ἄλλοι ἔλεγον, οὐχί, ἀλλὰ ὅμοιος αὐτῶ ἐστιν. ἐκεῖνος ἔλεγεν ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι.
10 They therefore were asking him, "How were your eyes opened?"
10 ἔλεγον οὗν αὐτῶ, πῶς [οὗν] ἠνεῴχθησάν σου οἱ ὀφθαλμοί;
11 He answered, "A man called Jesus made mud, anointed my eyes, and said to me, 'Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash.' So I went away and washed, and I received sight."
11 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 οὗν καὶ νιψάμενος ἀνέβλεψα.
12 Then they asked him, "Where is he?" He said, "I don't know."
12 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῶ, ποῦ ἐστιν ἐκεῖνος; λέγει, οὐκ οἶδα.
13 They brought him who had been blind to the Pharisees.
13 ἄγουσιν αὐτὸν πρὸς τοὺς φαρισαίους τόν ποτε τυφλόν.
14 It was a Sabbath when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes.
14 ἦν δὲ σάββατον ἐν ᾗ ἡμέρᾳ τὸν πηλὸν ἐποίησεν ὁ ἰησοῦς καὶ ἀνέῳξεν αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς.
15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. He said to them, "He put mud on my eyes, I washed, and I see."
15 πάλιν οὗν ἠρώτων αὐτὸν καὶ οἱ φαρισαῖοι πῶς ἀνέβλεψεν. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, πηλὸν ἐπέθηκέν μου ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς, καὶ ἐνιψάμην, καὶ βλέπω.
16 Some therefore of the Pharisees said, "This man is not from God, because he doesn't keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" There was division among them.
16 ἔλεγον οὗν ἐκ τῶν φαρισαίων τινές, οὐκ ἔστιν οὖτος παρὰ θεοῦ ὁ ἄνθρωπος, ὅτι τὸ σάββατον οὐ τηρεῖ. ἄλλοι [δὲ] ἔλεγον, πῶς δύναται ἄνθρωπος ἁμαρτωλὸς τοιαῦτα σημεῖα ποιεῖν; καὶ σχίσμα ἦν ἐν αὐτοῖς.
17 Therefore they asked the blind man again, "What do you say about him, because he opened your eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet."
17 λέγουσιν οὗν τῶ τυφλῶ πάλιν, τί σὺ λέγεις περὶ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἠνέῳξέν σου τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς; ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ὅτι προφήτης ἐστίν.
18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him who had received his sight,
18 οὐκ ἐπίστευσαν οὗν οἱ ἰουδαῖοι περὶ αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἦν τυφλὸς καὶ ἀνέβλεψεν, ἕως ὅτου ἐφώνησαν τοὺς γονεῖς αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἀναβλέψαντος
19 and asked them, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"
19 καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτοὺς λέγοντες, οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς ὑμῶν, ὃν ὑμεῖς λέγετε ὅτι τυφλὸς ἐγεννήθη; πῶς οὗν βλέπει ἄρτι;
20 His parents answered them, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
20 ἀπεκρίθησαν οὗν οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν, οἴδαμεν ὅτι οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς ἡμῶν καὶ ὅτι τυφλὸς ἐγεννήθη·
21 but how he now sees, we don't know; or who opened his eyes, we don't know. He is of age. Ask him. He will speak for himself."
21 πῶς δὲ νῦν βλέπει οὐκ οἴδαμεν, ἢ τίς ἤνοιξεν αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ἡμεῖς οὐκ οἴδαμεν· αὐτὸν ἐρωτήσατε, ἡλικίαν ἔχει, αὐτὸς περὶ ἑαυτοῦ λαλήσει.
22 His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if any man would confess him as Christ, he would be put out of the synagogue.
22 ταῦτα εἶπαν οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐφοβοῦντο τοὺς ἰουδαίους, ἤδη γὰρ συνετέθειντο οἱ ἰουδαῖοι ἵνα ἐάν τις αὐτὸν ὁμολογήσῃ χριστόν, ἀποσυνάγωγος γένηται.
23 Therefore his parents said, "He is of age. Ask him."
23 διὰ τοῦτο οἱ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ εἶπαν ὅτι ἡλικίαν ἔχει, αὐτὸν ἐπερωτήσατε.
24 So they called the man who was blind a second time, and said to him, "Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner."
24 ἐφώνησαν οὗν τὸν ἄνθρωπον ἐκ δευτέρου ὃς ἦν τυφλὸς καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῶ, δὸς δόξαν τῶ θεῶ· ἡμεῖς οἴδαμεν ὅτι οὖτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἁμαρτωλός ἐστιν.
25 He therefore answered, "I don't know if he is a sinner. One thing I do know: that though I was blind, now I see."
25 ἀπεκρίθη οὗν ἐκεῖνος, εἰ ἁμαρτωλός ἐστιν οὐκ οἶδα· ἓν οἶδα, ὅτι τυφλὸς ὢν ἄρτι βλέπω.
26 They said to him again, "What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?"
26 εἶπον οὗν αὐτῶ, τί ἐποίησέν σοι; πῶς ἤνοιξέν σου τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς;
27 He answered them, "I told you already, and you didn't listen. Why do you want to hear it again? You don't also want to become his disciples, do you?"
27 ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς, εἶπον ὑμῖν ἤδη καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατε· τί πάλιν θέλετε ἀκούειν; μὴ καὶ ὑμεῖς θέλετε αὐτοῦ μαθηταὶ γενέσθαι;
28 They insulted him and said, "You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.
28 καὶ ἐλοιδόρησαν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπον, σὺ μαθητὴς εἶ ἐκείνου, ἡμεῖς δὲ τοῦ μωϊσέως ἐσμὲν μαθηταί·
29 We know that God has spoken to Moses. But as for this man, we don't know where he comes from."
29 ἡμεῖς οἴδαμεν ὅτι μωϊσεῖ λελάληκεν ὁ θεός, τοῦτον δὲ οὐκ οἴδαμεν πόθεν ἐστίν.
30 The man answered them, "How amazing! You don't know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.
30 ἀπεκρίθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, ἐν τούτῳ γὰρ τὸ θαυμαστόν ἐστιν ὅτι ὑμεῖς οὐκ οἴδατε πόθεν ἐστίν, καὶ ἤνοιξέν μου τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς.
31 We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshipper of God, and does his will, he listens to him.
31 οἴδαμεν ὅτι ἁμαρτωλῶν ὁ θεὸς οὐκ ἀκούει, ἀλλ᾽ ἐάν τις θεοσεβὴς ᾖ καὶ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ποιῇ τούτου ἀκούει.
32 Since the world began it has never been heard of that anyone opened the eyes of someone born blind.
32 ἐκ τοῦ αἰῶνος οὐκ ἠκούσθη ὅτι ἠνέῳξέν τις ὀφθαλμοὺς τυφλοῦ γεγεννημένου·
33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing."
33 εἰ μὴ ἦν οὖτος παρὰ θεοῦ, οὐκ ἠδύνατο ποιεῖν οὐδέν.
34 They answered him, "You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us?" They threw him out.
34 ἀπεκρίθησαν καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῶ, ἐν ἁμαρτίαις σὺ ἐγεννήθης ὅλος, καὶ σὺ διδάσκεις ἡμᾶς; καὶ ἐξέβαλον αὐτὸν ἔξω.
35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and finding him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of God?"
35 ἤκουσεν ἰησοῦς ὅτι ἐξέβαλον αὐτὸν ἔξω, καὶ εὑρὼν αὐτὸν εἶπεν, σὺ πιστεύεις εἰς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου;
36 He answered, "Who is he, Lord, that I may believe in him?"
36 ἀπεκρίθη ἐκεῖνος καὶ εἶπεν, καὶ τίς ἐστιν, κύριε, ἵνα πιστεύσω εἰς αὐτόν;
37 Jesus said to him, "You have both seen him, and it is he who speaks with you."
37 εἶπεν αὐτῶ ὁ ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἑώρακας αὐτὸν καὶ ὁ λαλῶν μετὰ σοῦ ἐκεῖνός ἐστιν.
38 He said, "Lord, I believe!" and he worshiped him.
38 ὁ δὲ ἔφη, πιστεύω, κύριε· καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῶ.
39 Jesus said, "I came into this world for judgment, that those who don't see may see; and that those who see may become blind."
39 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἰησοῦς, εἰς κρίμα ἐγὼ εἰς τὸν κόσμον τοῦτον ἦλθον, ἵνα οἱ μὴ βλέποντες βλέπωσιν καὶ οἱ βλέποντες τυφλοὶ γένωνται.
40 Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said to him, "Are we also blind?"
40 ἤκουσαν ἐκ τῶν φαρισαίων ταῦτα οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὄντες, καὶ εἶπον αὐτῶ, μὴ καὶ ἡμεῖς τυφλοί ἐσμεν;
41 Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains.
41 εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, εἰ τυφλοὶ ἦτε, οὐκ ἂν εἴχετε ἁμαρτίαν· νῦν δὲ λέγετε ὅτι βλέπομεν· ἡ ἁμαρτία ὑμῶν μένει.
