Jesus came near one of the towns. There was a blind man sitting next to the road. He was asking people for money.

He heard many people coming down the road. So he asked, “What is happening?”

They told him, “Jesus is coming here.”

The blind began to shout in a loud voice. “Jesus, Son of David,” he said. “Have pity on me!”

The people who led the way told him to be quiet. But he shouted more and more, “Son of David, have pity on me!”

Jesus stopped. He told the people to bring the blind man to him. When he came close, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”

He said, “Lord, I want to see.”

So Jesus said to him, “ Then see. You are healed because you believed.”

Immediately, the man was able to see. He followed Jesus, thanking God. And everyone who saw this, praised God too.
