Luke 5:17-26 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

17 And it was done in one of the days, he sat, and taught [and he sitting taught]; and there were Pharisees sitting, and doctors of the law, that came of each castle of Galilee, and of Judaea, and of Jerusalem[a]; and the virtue of the Lord was to heal sick men.

18 And lo! men bare in a bed a man that was sick in the palsy [that was sick in palsy], and they sought to bear him in, and set before him [and to put before him].

19 And they found not in what part they should bear him in, for the people, and they went upon the roof [And they not finding in what part they should bear him in, for the company of people, ascended up on the roof], and by the slates they let him down with the bed, into the midst, before Jesus.

20 And when Jesus saw the faith of them, he said, Man, thy sins be forgiven to thee.

21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to think, saying, Who is this, that speaketh blasphemies? who may forgive sins, but God alone?

22 And as Jesus knew the thoughts of them, he answered, and said to them [he answering said to them], What think ye evil things in your hearts?

23 What is lighter to say, Sins be forgiven to thee, or to say, Rise up, and walk?

24 But that ye know, that man's Son hath power in earth to forgive sins, he said to the sick man in palsy, I say to thee, rise up, take thy bed, and go into thine house.

25 And at once [And anon] he rose up before them, and took the bed in which he lay, and went into his house, and magnified God [magnifying God].

26 And great wonder took all, and they magnified God; and they were full-filled with great dread, and said[b], For we have seen marvelous things to day.

Luke 5:17-26 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

17 And it happened on a certain day that he was teaching, and there sat the Pharisees and doctors of the law, who had come out of all the towns of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was to heal the people. 18 And behold, some men brought a man lying in his bed, who was taken with paralysis, and were trying to find a way to bring him in and to lay him before Jesus. 19 And when they could not find a way to bring him in, because of the press, they went up on the top of the house and let him down through the tiling, bed and all, in the midst before Jesus. 20 When he saw their faith, he said to him, Man, your sins are forgiven you. 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to think, saying, What fellow is this, who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins, but God only?

22 When Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answered and said to them, What are you thinking in your hearts? 23 Which is easier to say: Your sins are forgiven you, or to say, Rise and walk?  24 But so that you may know that the Son of man has power to forgive sins on earth – He said to the paralytic, I say to you, arise; take up your bed and go home to your house.

25 And immediately he rose up before them, took up the bed he laid on, and departed to his own house, praising God.

26 And they were all amazed, and they lauded God and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things today.

Luke 5:17-26 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

17 [a]And it came to pass, on a certain day, as he was teaching, that the Pharisees and doctors of the Law sat by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord [b]was in him, to heal them.

18 Then behold, men brought a man lying in a bed, which was taken with a palsy, and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.

19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in, because of the press, they went up on the house, and let him down through the tiling, bed and all, in the midst before Jesus.

20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

21 Then the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this that speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God only?

22 But when Jesus perceived their reasoning he answered, and said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?

23 Whether is easier to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee, or to say, Rise and walk?

24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority to forgive sins in earth, (he said unto the sick of the palsy) I say to thee, Arise: take up thy bed, and go into thine house.

25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up his bed whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, praising God.

26 And they were all amazed, and praised God, and were filled with fear, saying, Doubtless we have seen strange things today.

17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judæa, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. 19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus. 20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies?
