Jesus Heals a Paralytic

1 And getting into a boat he crossed over and came to 1his own city. 2 2And behold, some people brought to him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And when Jesus 3saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, 4"Take heart, my son; 5your sins are forgiven." 3 And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves, 6"This man is blaspheming." 4 But Jesus, 7knowinga their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? 5 For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise and walk'? 6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"--he then said to the paralytic--"Rise, pick up your bed and go home." 7 And he rose and went home. 8 When the crowds saw it, 8they were afraid, and 9they glorified God, who had 10given such authority to men.
