The Sick of the palsie let down
through the Tiling.
And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which
was taken with a palsy: and they sought meants 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
