Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 9:39-41.


John 9:41

_ _ If ye were blind — wanted light to discern My claims, and only waited to receive it.

_ _ ye should have no sin — none of the guilt of shutting out the light.

_ _ ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth — Your claim to possess light, while rejecting Me, is that which seals you up in the guilt of unbelief.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 9:39-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 9:41

If ye had been blind — Invincibly ignorant; if ye had not had so many means of knowing: ye would have had no sin — Comparatively to what ye have now. But now ye say — Ye yourselves acknowledge, Ye see, therefore your sin remaineth — Without excuse, without remedy.
