“And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgiue sinnes, but God alone?”
King James Version (KJV)
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? 22. But when Iesus perceiued their thoughts, he answering, saide vnto them, What reason ye in your hearts? 23. Whether is easier to say, Thy sinnes be forgiuen thee: or to say, Rise vp and walke? 24. But that ye may know that the Sonne of man hath power vpon earth to forgiue sinnes (he said vnto the sicke of the palsie,) I say vnto thee, Arise, and take vp thy couch, and go into thine house.
