And  he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came again into Capernaum(a) after some days; And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judæa, and Jerusalem: and it was noised that he was in the house. And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. And, behold, men(b) come unto(c) him, bringing(d)   a man which was taken with a(e) palsy, lying on(f) a bed which was borne of four: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in(g) because of the multitude(h), they went upon the housetop, and they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let him down through the tiling with his couch(i) wherein the sick of the palsy lay into the midst before Jesus. And when Jesus(j) seeing(k) their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy(l), Son(m), be of good cheer; thy sins be(n) forgiven thee. But(o) behold there were certain of the scribes and the Pharisees sitting there, and began to reason(p) in their hearts, saying(q) within themselves, Who is(r) this man which(s) speaketh(t) blasphemies(u)? Who can forgive sins, but God alone(v)? And immediately when Jesus perceived(x) in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves(y), he answering said unto them, Why(z) reason(aa) ye these things(bb) in your hearts? For Whether is it easier, to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise(cc) and take up thy bed and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon(dd) earth to forgive sins, (then he saith(ee)  unto(ff) the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch(gg), and go thy way into(hh) thine house. And immediately he arose(ii) up before them, and took up the bed(jj) whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. And went forth before them all; insomuch that(kk) when the multitudes saw it, they were all amazed(ll), and they glorified God, which had given such power unto men, and were filled with fear, saying, We never saw it on this fashion(mm).
