“¶ And behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsie: and they sought meanes to bring him in, and to lay him before him.”
King James Version (KJV)
15. But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him, and great multitudes came together to heare, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. 16. ¶ And he withdrew himselfe into the wildernesse, and prayed. 17. And it came to passe on a certaine day, as hee was teaching, that there were Pharisees and Doctours of the Law sitting by, which were come out of euery towne of Galilee, and Iudea, and Hierusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heale them. 18. ¶ And behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsie: and they sought meanes to bring him in, and to lay him before him. 19. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in, because of the multitude, they went vpon the house top, & let him downe through the tiling with his couch, into the midst before Iesus. 20. And when he saw their faith, hee said vnto him, Man, thy sinnes are forgiuen thee. 21. And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgiue sinnes, but God alone?
