<​1/​> And Jesus entered into a Ship & passed over, & came into his own country City, and behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsey, laying on a bed; & Jesus, knowing their faith, said unto the sick of the palsey, Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee; go thy way and sin nomore. <​2/​> And behold, certain of the scribes said with in them selves, This man blasphemeth. And Jesus knowing their thoughts, said, wherfore is it that ye think evil in yours in your hearts? For is it not easieer to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; then to say, Arise, & walk? But I said this that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on Earth to forgive sins. Then Jesus saith <​said​> unto the Sick of the palsey, Arise, take up thy bed, & go unto thy house. & <​And​> he immediately arose & departed to his house. But when the multitude saw it, they marveled, & glorifi <​3/​> ed God, which <​who​> had given such power unto men. <​3/​> & <​And​> as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man named Mathew, siting at the receipt of customs <​place <​*​> where they receved tributes as​> <​*​> saith <​said​> unto him, Follow me. & <​And​> he arose & followed <​4​> him. <​4/​> & <​And​> it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meet <​meat​> in the house, behold, many Publicans & Sinners came & set down with him <​him, & with​> his Deciples. & <​And​> when the Pharicees saw them, they said unto his Deciples, Why eateth your master with Publicans & Sinners? But when Jesus heard them, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a Phycician, but they that are sick. But go ye, & learn what this meaneth, I will have mercy, & not Sacrifice; for I am not come to call the righteous, but Sinners [p. 16 (first numbering)]
