Mark Chapter 10
Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight
10:46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples,
together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus
(that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging.
10:47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout,
"Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
10:48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the
more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
10:49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called to
the blind man, "Cheer up! On your feet! He's calling you."
10:50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
10:51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
10:52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you."
Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
