So dey wen go up on top da flat roof, an make one big puka inside da roof, right ova da place wea Jesus stay. Dey put da guy on top his mat an put um down real slow in front Jesus. Wen Jesus see dat, he wen tink, “Eh, wow! Dis guys trus me fo real kine, dat I goin make dea friend come good!” Den he tell da guy, “Eh, my boy, you know all da bad kine stuff you wen do befo?

But now, I goin show proof you guys -- I goin make dis sick guy make strong.”
