47 And when he heard that it was Jesus the aNazarene, he began to cry out and say, Jesus, 1bSon of David, have cmercy on me!
48 And many arebuked him so that he would be silent, but he cried out much more, Son of David, have mercy on me!
49 And Jesus, standing still, said, 1Call him here. And they called the blind man, saying to him, Take courage. Rise. He is calling you.
50 And throwing his garment aside, he leaped up and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered him and said, 1What do you want Me to ado for you? And the blind man said to Him, bRabboni, that I may receive my sight!
52 And Jesus said to him, Go; your afaith has 1healed you. And bimmediately he received his sight and followed Him on the road.
