Now some of the scribes were sit­ting there, ques­tion­ing in their hearts, “Why does this man speak thus? It is blas­phemy! Who can for­give sins but God alone?” And im­me­di­ately Je­sus, per­ceiv­ing in his spirit that they thus ques­tioned within them­selves, said to them, “Why do you ques­tion thus in your hearts? Which is eas­ier, to say to the par­a­lytic, ‘Your sins are for­given,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your pal­let and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of man has au­thor­ity on earth to for­give sins” — he said to the par­a­lytic — “I say to you, rise, take up your pal­let and go home.” And he rose, and im­me­di­ately took up the pal­let and went out be­fore them all; so that they were all amazed and glo­ri­fied God, say­ing, “We never saw any­thing like this!”

—Mark 2:61-12
