For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?
 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
 And he arose, and departed to his house.
