Luke 5:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 When he saw their faith, he said, “As for you, your sins are forgiven.”[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 5:20 As for you, your sins are forgiven: literally, “O man, your sins are forgiven you.” The connection between the forgiveness of sins and the cure of the paralytic reflects the belief of first-century Palestine (based on the Old Testament: Ex 20:5; Dt 5:9) that sickness and infirmity are the result of sin, one’s own or that of one’s ancestors (see also Lk 13:2; Jn 5:14; 9:2).
