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