35. Healing a Blind Man near Jericho
35 And as He 1adrew near to bJericho, a certain cblind man was sitting by the road, begging.
36 And hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what this might be.
37 And they told him that Jesus the aNazarene was passing by.
38 And he shouted, saying, Jesus, 1aSon of David, have mercy on me!
39 And those going before arebuked him so that he would be silent, but he cried out much more, Son of David, have mercy on me!
40 And Jesus, standing still, commanded that he be led to Him. And when he drew near, He questioned him,
41 1What do you want Me to ado for you? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight!
42 And Jesus said to him, Receive your sight; your afaith has 1healed you.
43 And instantly he received his sight and followed Him, aglorifying God. And all the people, seeing it, gave bpraise to God.
