Heals One Sick with Palsy
Matthew 9:1 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.
2: And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
3: And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
4: And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
5: For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
6: But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
7: And he arose, and departed to his house.
8: But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.
Mark 2:1 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.
2: And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
3: And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
4: And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
5: When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
6: But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
7: Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
8: And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?
9: Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?
10: But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
11: I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.
12: And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.
Luke 5:17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
18: And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
19: Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
20: And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
21: And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
22: And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
23: And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
24: And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.
