Sequentia Sancti Evangelii secundum Matthaeum – Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew

Matthew 9 : 1-8

In illo tempore : Ascendens Jesus in naviculam, transfretavit et venit in civitatem Suam. Et ecce, offerebant ei paralyticum jacentem in lecto. Et videns Jesus fidem illorum, dixit paralytico : Confide, fili, remittuntur tibi peccata tua.

Et ecce, quidam de scribis dixerunt intra se : Hic blasphemat. Et cum vidisset Jesus cogitationes eorum, dixit : Ut quid cogitatis mala in cordibus vestris? Quid est facilius dicere : Dimittuntur tibi peccata tua; an dicere : Surge et ambula? Ut autem sciatis, quia Filius Hominis habet potestatem in terra dimittendi peccata, tunc ait paralytico : Surge, tolle lectum tuum, et vade in domum tuam.

Et surrexit et abiit in domum suam. Videntes autem turbae timuerunt, et glorificaverunt Deum, qui dedit potestatem talem hominibus.

 

English translation

At that time, Jesus entering into a ship, passed over the water and came into His own city. And behold they brought to Him one sick of the palsy lying in a bed; and Jesus seeing their faith, said to the man sick of the palsy, “Be of good heart, son, your sins are forgiven.”

And behold some of the scribes said within themselves, “He has blasphemed.” And Jesus seeing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? Whether it is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk?’ But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins, (then He said to the man sick of the palsy), ‘Arise, take up your bed, and go into your house.”

And he arose, and went into his house, and the multitude seeing it feared, and glorified God Who had given such power to men.
