John 9:24-41 Darby’s Translation

24  They called therefore a second time the man who had been blind, and said to him, Give glory to God: we know that this man is sinful. 25  He answered therefore, If he is sinful I know not. One thing I know, that, being blind [before], now I see. 26  And they said to him again, What did he do to thee? how opened he thine eyes? 27  He answered them, I told you already and ye did not hear: why do ye desire to hear again? do ye also wish to become his disciples? 28  They railed at him, and said, Thou art his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. 29  We know that God spoke to Moses; but [as to] this [man], we know not whence he is. 30  The man answered and said to them, Now in this is a wonderful thing, that ye do not know whence he is, and he has opened mine eyes. 31  [But] we know that God does not hear sinners; but if any one be God-fearing and do his will, him he hears. 32  Since time was, it has not been heard that any one opened the eyes of one born blind. 33  If this [man] were not of God he would be able to do nothing. 34  They answered and said to him, Thou hast been wholly born in sins, and thou teachest us? And they cast him out.

Spiritual Blindness

35  Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him, he said to him, Thou, dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36  He answered and said, And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him? 37  And Jesus said to him, Thou hast both seen him, and he that speaks with thee is he. 38  And he said, I believe, Lord: and he did him homage.

39  And Jesus said, For judgment am I come into this world, that they which see not may see, and they which see may become blind. 40  And [some] of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and they said to him, Are we blind also? 41  Jesus said to them, If ye were blind ye would not have sin; but now ye say, We see, your sin remains.
