A Paralytic Healed

1 Getting into a boat, Jesus crossed over the sea and came to 1His own city.
2 2And they brought to Him a 3paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, "4Take courage, son; 5your sins are forgiven."
3 And some of the scribes said to themselves, "This fellow 6blasphemes."
4 And Jesus 7knowing their thoughts said, "Why are you thinking evil in your hearts?
5 "Which is easier, to say, '8Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, and walk '?
6 "But so that you may know that 9the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins "-then He said to the 10paralytic, "Get up, pick up your bed and go home."
7 And he got up and went home.
8 But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and 11glorified God, who had given such authority to men.
