John 9:34 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou wast altogether born in sins - Thou hast not only been a vile wretch in some other pre-existent state, but thy parents also have been grossly iniquitous; therefore thou and they are punished by this blindness: Thou wast altogether born in sins - thou art no other than a sinful lump of deformity, and utterly unfit to have any connection with those who worship God.

His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, who already had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be put out of the synagogue.
Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"
3 John 1:10
So when I come, I will call attention to what he is doing, spreading malicious nonsense about us. Not satisfied with that, he even refuses to welcome other believers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church.
