“I say vnto thee, Arise, & take vp thy bed, & goe thy way into thine house.”
King James Version (KJV)
8. And immediatly, when Iesus perceiued in his Spirit, that they so reasoned within themselues, he said vnto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? 9. Whether is it easier to say to the sicke of the palsie, Thy sinnes be forgiuen thee: or to say, Arise, and take vp thy bed and walke? 10. But that yee may know that the Sonne of man hath power on earth to forgiue sinnes, (Hee saith to the sicke of the palsie,) 11. I say vnto thee, Arise, & take vp thy bed, & goe thy way into thine house. 12. And immediatly he arose, tooke vp the bed, and went foorth before them all, insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, Wee neuer saw it on this fashion. 13. And he went foorth againe by the sea side, and all the multitude resorted vnto him, and he taught them. 14. And as he passed by, he saw Leui the son of Alpheus sitting at the receit of Custome, and said vnto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
