The Paralyzed Man Let Down through the Roof
(Le paralytique descendu du toit)

Matthew 9:2 - 9:3 - 9:4 - 9:5 - 9:6 - 9:7

9:2. They brought to Him one sick with palsy lying in a bed. Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the man sick with palsy, “Be of good heart, son, your sins are forgiven you.”
9:3 Some of the scribes said to themselves, “He blasphemes.”
9:4. Jesus, seeing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts?
9:5. “Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise, and walk?'
9:6. “But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins,” (then said He to the man sick with palsy,) “Arise, take up your bed, and go into your house.”
9:7. The man arose and went into his house.

Mark 2:1 - 2:2 - 2:3 - 2:4 - 2:5 - 2:6 - 2:7 - 2:8 - 2:9 - 2:10 - 2:11 - 2:12

2:1. Again Jesus entered into Capernaum after some days.
2:2. It was heard that He was in the house. Many came together, so that there was no room, not even at the door. To them Jesus spoke the Word.
2:3. Some came to Jesus bringing one sick with palsy; he was carried by four people.
2:4. When they could not bring the man to Jesus because of the multitude, they uncovered the roof where Jesus was, and opening it, they let down the bed in which the man lay sick with palsy.
2:5. When Jesus had seen their faith, He said to the one sick with palsy, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
2:6. There were some of the scribes sitting there and thinking in their hearts,
2:7. “Why does this Man say that? He blasphemes. Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
2:8. Jesus, knowing what they thought, said to them, “Why do you think these things in your hearts?
2:9. “Which is easier to say to the one sick with palsy: 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise, take up your bed and walk?'
2:10. “So that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins,” (Jesus said to the one sick with palsy,)
2:11. “I say to you: arise. Pick up your bed and go into your house.”
2:12. Immediately the man arose and, picking up his bed, went his way in the sight of all, so that all wondered and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this before.”

Luke 5:17 - 5:18 - 5:19 - 5:20 - 5:21 - 5:22 - 5:23 - 5:24 - 5:25 - 5:26

5:17. It came to pass on a certain day, as He sat teaching, that there were also Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by who had come out of every town of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was disposed to heal the afflicted.
5:18. Behold, men brought a man who had palsy in a bed, and they sought a way to bring him in and to lay him before Jesus.
5:19. When they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went up on the roof and let him down through the tiles with his bed into the midst before Jesus.
5:20. When He saw their faith, He said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.”
5:21. The scribes and Pharisees began to think, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?”
5:22. Jesus knew their thoughts and answered them, “What is it you think in your hearts?
5:23. “Which is easier to say: 'Your sins are forgiven you;' or to say, 'Arise and walk?'
5:24. “But, that you may know that the Son of Man has the power on earth to forgive sins (He said to the one sick with palsy), I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go into your house.”
5:25. Immediately rising up before them, he took up the bed on which he lay, and he went away to his own house, glorifying God.
5:26. All were astonished, and they glorified God. They were filled with fear, saying, “We have seen wonderful things today.”
