Mark 10:46 Then they came to Jericho. But as He was leaving the city with His disciples and a large following, a blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, was sitting on the side of the road. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 But many scolded him, that he should keep quiet, but he cried out even more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 Then Jesus stood still and said, “Call him here.” So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage, rise! He is calling for you.” 50 Casting off his cloak, he jumped up and came to Jesus. 51 Then Jesus answering him said, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied, “Rabbi, I want to have sight again.” 52 And Jesus said to him, “Go, your faith has delivered you.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the way.
