But not finding any way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on 1the roof and let him down 2through the tiles with his stretcher, into the middle of the crowd, in front of Jesus.
Seeing their faith, He said, "Friend, 3your sins are forgiven you."
The scribes and the Pharisees 4began to reason, saying, "5Who is this man who speaks blasphemies? 6Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"
