Great Is Your Faith

Matthew 9:1–8 English Standard Version

1Getting into a boat [Jesus] crossed over and came to his own city. 2And
behold, some people brought to him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And when
Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Take heart, my son; your sins
are forgiven.” 3And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This
man is blaspheming.” 4But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do
you think evil in your hearts? 5 For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are
forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? 6But that you may know that the Son of
Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he then said to the paralytic—
“Rise, pick up your bed and go home.” 7And he rose and went home.
8When the crowds saw it, they were afraid, and they glorified God, who had
given such authority to men
