35 As he approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36When he heard a crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37They told him, Jesus of Nazareth is passing by. 38Then he shouted, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! 39Those who were in front sternly ordered him to be quiet; but he shouted even more loudly, Son of David, have mercy on me! 40Jesus stood still and ordered the man to be brought to him; and when he came near, he asked him, 41What do you want me to do for you? He said, Lord, let me see again. 42Jesus said to him, Receive your sight; your faith has saved you. 43Immediately he regained his sight and followed him, glorifying God; and all the people, when they saw it, praised God.
