Luke 5:18-25 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
18And behold, men brought in a bed a man, who had the palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
19And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in, because of the multitude, they went up upon the roof, and let him down through the tiles with his bed into the midst before Jesus.
20Whose faith when he saw, he said: Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
21And the scribes and Pharisees began to think, saying: Who is this who speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
22And when Jesus knew their thoughts, answering, he said to them: What is it you think in your hearts?
23Which is easier to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk?
24But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say to thee, Arise, take up thy bed, and go into thy house.
25And immediately rising up before them, he took up the bed on which he lay; and he went away to his own house, glorifying God.
