|Luke 5:12-21. καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτὸν ἐν μιᾷ
τῶν πόλεων καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ πλήρης λέπρας: ἰδὼν δὲ τὸν ἰησοῦν πεσὼν ἐπὶ
πρόσωπον ἐδεήθη αὐτοῦ λέγων, κύριε, ἐὰν θέλῃς δύνασαί με καθαρίσαι. καὶ
ἐκτείνας τὴν χεῖρα ἥψατο αὐτοῦ λέγων, θέλω, καθαρίσθητι: καὶ εὐθέως ἡ
λέπρα ἀπῆλθεν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ. καὶ αὐτὸς παρήγγειλεν αὐτῷ μηδενὶ εἰπεῖν, ἀλλὰ
ἀπελθὼν δεῖξον σεαυτὸν τῷ ἱερεῖ, καὶ προσένεγκε περὶ τοῦ καθαρισμοῦ σου
καθὼς προσέταξεν μωϋσῆς, εἰς μαρτύριον αὐτοῖς. διήρχετο δὲ μᾶλλον ὁ λόγος
περὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ συνήρχοντο ὄχλοι πολλοὶ ἀκούειν καὶ θεραπεύεσθαι ἀπὸ
τῶν ἀσθενειῶν αὐτῶν: αὐτὸς δὲ ἦν ὑποχωρῶν ἐν ταῖς ἐρήμοις καὶ προσευχόμενος.
καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν μιᾷ τῶν ἡμερῶν καὶ αὐτὸς ἦν διδάσκων, καὶ ἦσαν καθήμενοι
φαρισαῖοι καὶ νομοδιδάσκαλοι οἳ ἦσαν ἐληλυθότες ἐκ πάσης κώμης τῆς γαλιλαίας
καὶ ἰουδαίας καὶ ἰερουσαλήμ: καὶ δύναμις κυρίου ἦν εἰς τὸ ἰᾶσθαι αὐτόν.
καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνδρες φέροντες ἐπὶ κλίνης ἄνθρωπον ὃς ἦν παραλελυμένος, καὶ
ἐζήτουν αὐτὸν εἰσενεγκεῖν καὶ θεῖναι [αὐτὸν] ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ. καὶ μὴ εὑρόντες
ποίας εἰσενέγκωσιν αὐτὸν διὰ τὸν ὄχλον ἀναβάντες ἐπὶ τὸ δῶμα διὰ τῶν
κεράμων καθῆκαν αὐτὸν σὺν τῷ κλινιδίῳ εἰς τὸ μέσον ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ ἰησοῦ.
καὶ ἰδὼν τὴν πίστιν αὐτῶν εἶπεν, ἄνθρωπε, ἀφέωνταί σοι αἱ ἁμαρτίαι σου.
καὶ ἤρξαντο διαλογίζεσθαι οἱ γραμματεῖς καὶ οἱ φαρισαῖοι λέγοντες, τίς
ἐστιν οὗτος ὃς λαλεῖ βλασφημίας; τίς δύναται ἁμαρτίας ἀφεῖναι εἰ μὴ μόνος
||Luke 5:12-21. And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold
a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought
him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And he put forth
his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately
the leprosy departed from him. And he charged him to tell no man: but go,
and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according
as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. But so much the more went
there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear,
and to be healed by him of their infirmities. And he withdrew himself into
the wilderness, and prayed. 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 Judaea, and Jerusalem:
and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 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. 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. And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins
are forgiven thee. And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying,
Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
