Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

John 9

The man that was born blind restored to sight.

John 9:1 And, passing along, he saw a man, blind from birth. John 9:2 And his disciples questioned him, saying—Rabbi! who sinned, this man or his parents, that, blind, he should be born? John 9:3 Jesus answered—Neither, this man, sinned nor his parents; but . . . that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:4 We must needs be working the works of him that sent me, while it is, day: There cometh a night, when, no one, can work. John 9:5 Whensoever I may be, in the world, I am, the light, of the world. John 9:6 These things, having said, he spat on the ground, and made clay with the spittle, and laid the clay upon his eyes; John 9:7 and said unto him—Withdraw! wash in the pool of Siloam,—which is to be translated, Sent. He went away, therefore, and washed, and came, seeing.

John 9:8 The neighbours, therefore, and they who used to observe him aforetime—that he was, a beggar, were saying—Is not, this, he that used to sit and beg? John 9:9 Others, were saying—'Tis, the same. Others, were saying—Nay! but he is, like him. He, was saying—I, am he. John 9:10 So they were saying unto him—How [then] were thine eyes opened? John 9:11 He, answered—The man that is called Jesus, made, clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me: Withdraw unto the pool of Siloam, and wash. Going away, therefore, and washing, I received sight. John 9:12 And they said unto him—Where is, He? He saith—I know not.

He is brought to the Pharisees.

John 9:13 They bring him unto the Pharisees—him at one time blind. John 9:14 Now it was Sabbath, on the day when Jesus made, the clay, and opened his eyes. John 9:15 Again, therefore, the Pharisees also questioned him, as to how he received sight. And, he, said unto them—Clay, laid he upon mine eyes, and I washed,—and do see. John 9:16 Certain from among the Pharisees, therefore, were saying—This man is not, from God, because, the Sabbath, he keepeth not. Others, [however] were saying—How can a sinful man, such signs as these, be doing? And there was, a division, among them. John 9:17 So they were saying unto the blind man, again, What dost, thou, say concerning him, in that he opened thine eyes? And, he, said—A prophet, is he.

They are offended at it, and excommunicate him:

John 9:18 The Jews, therefore, did not believe, concerning him, that he was blind, and received sight,—until they called the parents of him that had received sight, John 9:19 and questioned them, saying—Is, this, your son, of whom, ye, say, that blind, he was, born? How, then, seeth he, even now? John 9:20 His parents, therefore, answered, and said—We know that, this, is our son, and that, blind, he was born; John 9:21 But, how he now seeth, we know not, or, who opened his eyes, we, know not,—Question, him, he is, of age, he, concerning himself, shall speak. John 9:22 These things, said his parents, because they were in fear of the Jews,—for, already, had the Jews agreed together, that, if anyone should confess, him, to be Christ, an, excommunicant from the synagogue, should he be made. John 9:23 For this cause, his parents said—He is, of age,—question him. John 9:24 So they called the man a second time—[him] who had been blind, and said unto him—Give glory unto God! We know that, this man, is, a sinner. John 9:25 He, therefore, answered—Whether he is a sinner, I know not: One thing, I know,—That, whereas I was, blind, now, I see! John 9:26 They said, therefore, unto him—What did he unto thee? How opened he thine eyes? John 9:27 He answered them—I told you just now, and ye did not hear: Why, again, do ye wish to hear? Are, ye also, wishing to become, his disciples? John 9:28 And they reviled him, and said—Thou, art, the disciple, of that man; but, we, are, Moses', disciples:— John 9:29 We, know, that, unto Moses, hath God spoken; but, as for this man, we know not whence he is. John 9:30 The man answered, and said unto them—Why! Herein, is, the marvel: That, ye, know not whence he is, and yet he opened mine eyes. John 9:31 We know that, God, unto sinners, doth not hearken: but, if one be, a worshipper of God, and be doing, his will, unto this one, he hearkeneth. John 9:32 Out of age-past time, hath it never been heard, that anyone opened the eyes of one who, blind, had been born. John 9:33 If this man were not from God, he could have done nothing. John 9:34 They answered and said unto him—In sins, wast, thou, born, altogether; and art, thou, teaching, us? And they cast him out.

but he is received of Jesus, and confesseth him.

John 9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out: and, finding him, said—Dost, thou, believe on the son of Man? John 9:36 He answered [and said]—And, who, is he, Sir, that I may believe on him? John 9:37 Jesus said unto him—Thou hast both seen him and, he that is speaking with thee, is, he. John 9:38 And, he, said—I believe, Sir! and worshipped him.

Who they are whom Christ enlighteneth.

John 9:39 And Jesus said—For judgment, I, unto this world, came: that, they who were not seeing, might see, and, they who were seeing, might become, blind. John 9:40 They of the Pharisees who were with him, heard, these things, and said unto him—Are, we also, blind? John 9:41 Jesus said unto them—If, blind, ye had been, ye had not had sin; but, now, ye say, We see, your sin, abideth.
