Jesus Heals a Blind Beggar
a Then it happened, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road begging.
And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant.
So they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
And he cried out, saying, "Jesus, b Son of David, have mercy on me!"
Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him,
saying, "What do you want Me to do for you?" He said, "Lord, that I may receive my sight."
Then Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; c your faith has made you well."
And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, d glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging.
When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, "Son of David, have mercy on us!
And He said to him, "Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.
And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today!
So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way of punishing them, because of the people, since they all glorified God for what had been done.
When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, "Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life.
