24 So a second time they summoned the man who had been blind and told him,
"Give glory to God.[d: _Give glory to God_ was a solemn charge to tell the truth; Jos 7:19.]
We know that this man is a sinner!"
25 He answered,
"Whether or not He's a sinner,
I don't know.
One thing I do know:
I was blind,
and now I can see!"
26 Then they asked him,
"What did He do to you?
How did He open your eyes?"
