“Whose soeuer sinnes yee remit, they are remitted vnto them, and whose soeuer sinnes yee retaine, they are retained.”
King James Version (KJV)
20. And when hee had so saide, hee shewed vnto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. 21. Then said Iesus to them againe, Peace be vnto you: As my Father hath sent me, euen so send I you. 22. And when he had said this, hee breathed on them, and saith vnto them, Receiue ye the holy Ghost. 23. Whose soeuer sinnes yee remit, they are remitted vnto them, and whose soeuer sinnes yee retaine, they are retained. 24. ¶ But Thomas one of the twelue, called Didymus, was not with them when Iesus came. 25. The other disciples therefore said vnto him, We haue seene the Lord. But he said vnto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nailes, and put my finger into the print of the nailes, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not beleeue. 26. ¶ And after eight dayes, againe his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: Then came Iesus, the doores being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be vnto you.
