They say unto the blind Man again,
What sayest thou of him, that he hath

But the Jews did not believe con- 18.

and received his fight, until they callid
the Parents of him that had receiv'd
his fight. And they asked them, say-19.
ing, Is this your Son, who ye say was born
blind? hoc then doth he now see? His 20.
Parents answered them and said, We
know that this is our son, and that he was
born blind: But by what means he now 21.
Seeth, we know not ; or who hath opened
his eyes we know not : be is of age, ask him,

spake his parents, because they feared
the Jews: For the Jews had agreed al-
ready, that if any Man did confess that
he was Christ, he should be put out of
the Synagogue. Therefore said his Pa-23.

Then again callid they the Man that 24.
was blind, and said unto him, Give
God i he praise. We know that this man
is a finner. He answered and said, as.
Whether he be a finner or no, I know
not: one thing I know, that whereas I
was blind, now I see. Then said they 25.

opened he thine eyes? He answer'd them, 27.

hear : wherefore should you hear it again?
