2:01 And entering again into Capernaum through days ...
  it is heard he is in a house.
2:02 And many were led together so that there was no longer any more space (between them)
  but now, not even before the door.
  And he spoke "the word" to them.
2:03 And they come before him carrying a paralytic ...
  raised up by "four."
2:04 And not being able to carry (the paralytic) through the "crowd" to him ...
  they "unroofed the roof" where he was.
  And having dug (it) out ...
  they lowered the bed upon which the paralytic was laid down.
2:05 And Jesus having perceived their "belief" ...
  says to the paralytic ... Child, your "sins" are forgiven.
2:06 Now some of the scribes were sitting there.
  And they were reasoning things through in their "hearts."
2:07 Why? This (man) thus speaks blasphemies!
  Who is able to able to forgive sins? ... if not (this one), (then) only God!
2:08 And immediately, Jesus on knowing to his "Spirit" they were reasoning things through among themselves ...
  he said to them ... Why are you reasoning these (things) through in your hearts?
2:09 Which is easier to say to the paralytic ... your sins are forgiven? ...
  Or to say ... Stand, raise up your bed ...
  and walk around?
2:10 But so that you may perceive ...
  that the "Son of Man" has authority to forgive sins upon the earth ...
  he says to the paralytic ...
2:11 I say to you ... Stand ...
  raise up your bed!
  And "underlead" into your house!
2:12 And he stood, and "immediately" raising the bed, he went outside in front of everyone ...
  so as to astonish everyone ...
  and to glorify God ...
  they were saying ... We have never seen anything like this!
