1 And He entered again into Capernaum after [some] days, and it was heard that He was in a certain house.
1 And after some days, he again entered into Capernaum.
1 AND Jesus entered again into Capernaum for a few days; and when they heard that he was in a house,
2 And immediately many were gathered together, so that there was no longer any room, not even near the door. And He was speaking the word to them.
2 And it was heard that he was in the house. And so many gathered that there was no room left, not even at the door. And he spoke the word to them.
3 And they came to Him, bringing a paralytic being carried by four [men].
3 And they come, bringing unto him a man sick of the palsy, borne of four.
4 And not being able to get near Him because of the crowd, they removed the tiles from the roof where He was, and having dug through they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying.
4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed whereon the sick of the palsy lay.
4 But as they were unable to come near him because of the crowd, they went up to the roof and uncovered it over the place where Jesus was; and they lowered the quilt-bed in which the paralyzed man lay.
5 And Jesus, seeing their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Child, your sins have been forgiven you."
5 Then, when Jesus had seen their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, My son, your sins are forgiven.
6 And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts,
6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
6 But some of the scribes were sitting in that place and thinking in their hearts
7 Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who is able to forgive sins except God alone?"
7 Why doth this man thus speak? he blasphemeth: who can forgive sins but one, [even] God?
7 “Why is this man speaking in this way? He is blaspheming. Who can forgive sins, but God alone?”
8 And immediately, when Jesus recognized in His spirit that they were reasoning thus among themselves, He said to them, "Why are you reasoning these things in your hearts?
8 At once, Jesus, realizing in his spirit that they were thinking this within themselves, said to them: “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts?
9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins have been forgiven,' or to say, 'Arise, take up your bed and walk'?
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 in order that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on the earth to forgive sins"-He said to the paralytic,
10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority on earth to forgive sins (he saith to the sick of the palsy),
10 But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, he said to the paralytic,
11 "I say to you, arise, and take up your bed, and go to your house."
11 I say unto thee, Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thy house.
11 I tell you, Rise, take up your quilt-bed, and go to your house.
12 And immediately he arose, and taking his bed, he went out before [them] all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw [anything] like this!"
12 And he arose, and straightway 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.
