in order for the mute one to speak and see.


Then someone was brought to Him who was under the controlling power of a demon and this was demonstrated by the fact that his ability to see and speak had been taken away. Jesus restored him to wholeness evidenced by the fact that the one who had been unable to speak could now speak and see properly.
