The Pharisees hated Jesus and wanted to find a reason to arrest him.
Rhunmwuda ne Ivbi e Farisi na gha khẹko Jesu, iran kegha gualọ vbene iran khian ya muẹn khui hẹ.
They said that he should not heal sick people on the Sabbath.
Iran keghi tama rẹn, nẹ ghẹ ghi mu emwa egbe rran vbe Ẹdẹ Ikẹtin.
One Sabbath, Jesus found a blind man begging in the street.
Vbe ọ ghi sẹ Ẹdẹ Ikẹtin ọkpa, Jesu keghi miẹn arhuaro ọkpa nọ dabọ khian vbe abọ idunmwu.
He told his disciples:
Jesu na tama erhuanegbe ẹre wẹẹ:
‘See how God’s power will help this man.’
‘Wa ghee vbene Osanobua khian ya ru iyobọ ne okpia na hẹ.’
Jesus mixed his own saliva with dirt to make a paste, and then he put it on the man’s eyes.
Vbe iyeke ọni, Jesu keghi tu asẹn yotọ ya fuẹn ekẹn kugbe, ọ na yae wuo okpia nii aro.
Jesus told him:
Jesu na tama rẹn wẹẹ:
‘Go and wash your eyes in the pool of Siloam.’
‘Ya kpe aro ruẹ vbe ọghọdọ ọghe Siloam.’
The man did that, and then for the first time in his life, he could see.
Vbe nene okpia ghi kpe aro nẹ, aro ọre nọ te rhu ke ẹko rre keghi rran.
People were shocked.
Emwi nọ sunu na, keghi yan emwa unu ruan.
Iran na gha kha wẹẹ:
‘Is this the man who used to sit and beg, or is it just someone who looks like him?’
‘Ẹi re ọna ọre okpia nii, ne ọ tota lele ada dabọ khian? Ra ọmwa nọ khọ ọre nọ?’
The man said:
Nene okpia keghi wanniẹn iran wẹẹ:
‘I was the one born blind!’
‘Mẹ wa nọ. Ẹi re ọmwa ọvbehe!’
The people asked him:
Ẹre iran na ghi nọ rẹn wẹẹ:
‘Why aren’t you blind anymore?’
‘De vbene aro ruẹ ghi ya rran hẹ?’
When he told them what had happened, they took him to the Pharisees.
Vbe ọ ghi tama iran emwi nọ sunu, iran keghi rhie ẹre bu Ivbi e Farisi.
The man told the Pharisees:
Nene okpia keghi tama Ivbi e Farisi wẹẹ:
‘Jesus put a paste on my eyes and told me to go and wash it off.
‘Jesu ghi ya asẹn fuẹn ekẹn nẹ, ọ na yae wuo mwẹ aro. Ọ na wẹẹ ne I ya kpe aro vbe Siloam.
I did, and now I can see.’
I ghi ruẹ nẹ, I na suẹn gha bẹghe.’
The Pharisees said:
Ivbi e Farisi keghi kha wẹẹ:
‘If Jesus cures on the Sabbath, his power cannot be from God.’
‘Ne Jesu na mu ọmwa egbe rran vbe Ẹdẹ Ikẹtin rhiema wẹẹ ẹi re ẹtin Osanobua ẹre ọ loo.’
But others said:
Ẹre emwa eso na wẹẹ:
‘If his power were not from God, he would not be able to cure at all.’
‘Akpawẹ ẹi re ẹtin Osanobua, ẹi ghẹ te sẹtin gha mu emwa egbe rran.’
The Pharisees called the man’s parents and asked:
Ivbi e Farisi keghi nọ evbibiẹ nene okpia wẹẹ:
‘How is it that your son can now see?’
‘De vbene aro ovbi uwa ya rran hẹ?’
His parents were afraid because the Pharisees had said that anyone who puts faith in Jesus would be thrown out of the synagogue.
Ohan na gha mu evbibiẹ ọre rhunmwuda, te Ivbi e Farisi khu emwa ni mu ẹtin yan Jesu hin e sinagọg rre.
So they said:
Ẹre iran na ghi wanniẹn Ivbi e Farisi wẹẹ:
‘We don’t know.
‘Ima ma rẹn.
Ask him yourself.’
Wa tobọ uwa nọ rẹn.’
The Pharisees asked the man more questions until he said:
Ivbi e Farisi keghi dọlegbe suẹn gha zọlọ okpia nii ọta. Iran ghi zẹ nọ rẹn ọta, nene okpia keghi wanniẹn iran wẹẹ:
‘I’ve told you all I know.
‘I ka tama uwa nẹ.
Why do you keep asking me?’
Vbọsiẹ ne uwa na ye nọ mwẹ yi?’
The Pharisees were angry, and they threw him out.
Ohu na suẹn gha mu Ivbi e Farisi, iran keghi sua nene okpia fua.
Jesus went to find the man, and asked him:
Jesu ghi miẹn okpia na, ọ na nọ rẹn wẹẹ:
‘Do you have faith in the Messiah?’
‘Uwẹ mu ẹtin yan e Mezaia ra?’
The man said:
Ọ na wanniẹn Jesu wẹẹ:
‘I would if I knew who he was.’
‘I kpa rẹn ọmwa nọ khin, I gha te mu ẹtin yan rẹn.’
Jesu keghi tama rẹn wẹẹ:
‘I am the Messiah.’
‘Mẹ ọre Mezaia.’
Was that not kind of Jesus?
Uwẹ ma bẹghe ẹre wẹẹ, ọmwa nọ mwẹ ekhọe esi ẹre Jesu khin ra?
Not only did he cure the man but he also helped him to have faith.
Ọ ghi rran okpia nii aro nẹ, ọ na vbe ru iyobọ nẹ ya gha mwẹ amuẹtinyan.
“You are mistaken, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God.”—Matthew 22:29
“Wa wa bae ku rhunmwuda ighẹ wa ma ren otọe Ebe nii, ra ẹtin Osanobua.”—Matiu 22:29
How did Jesus help the blind man?
De vbene Jesu ya ru iyobọ ne arhuaro ọkpa hẹ?
Why did the Pharisees hate Jesus?
Vbọsiẹ ne Ivbi e Farisi na gha khẹko Jesu?
