“Four Bright Jewels” From Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

There are four bright Jewels in the crown of forgiveness. The first is a full forgiveness. Whoever God forgives, He forgives all every sin be it ever so dark and deep.
The second Jewel also sparkles; it is “freeness.” Yes, thank God, forgiveness is free. Free.
“I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake.” It is a free forgiveness.
It is neither goodness in man that makes God willing; nor yet evil in man that makes Him unwilling to forgive. It is only and entirely “for His own sake” (His love), that He pardons the guilty sinner. The words in every language which express pardon and forgiveness, all imply a free gift.
We have a third Jewel in this crown: Christ’s forgiveness is final. No after charges. No blotting out today and writing down again tomorrow. The sins of a believer are “cast behind God’s back into the very depths of the sea.”
But there is yet one more Jewel in this crown. Forgiveness is a present blessing. It is not something in prospect, but for present possession. It is not a mere plank on which to cross the stormy waters of Jordan at death, but a staff on which to lean all our journey through life. It is not a promissory note payable in the next world, but a treasure possessed and enjoyed now in this world.
Unconverted men take a different view of forgiveness. They think about it only in connection with the time when they come to die, not before; they only hope to be forgiven then.
Fellow sinner, sin is no trifle, or fancy, but a dread reality. And thank God, “forgiveness” of sin is also no mere fancy, but a grand truth. It is our first, our greatest need, and obtained only through accepting the substitutionary work of this Man Christ Jesus.
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.” (John 10:27, 2827My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. (John 10:27‑28)).

“Couch” From Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

(placed). [BED.]

Concise Bible Dictionary:

In the East the beds were simply mats that could be rolled up in the morning and put away in any corner. This explains why the persons who were healed were told to “take up” their beds (Matt. 9:66But 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. (Matthew 9:6); Mark 2:9, 11-129Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? (Mark 2:9)
11I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. 12And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion. (Mark 2:11‑12)
; John 5:8-128Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. 10The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. 11He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. 12Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? (John 5:8‑12)). For covering, a quilt sufficed, and in cold weather a thicker one; but often they used their own garments only: this accounts for the law that a garment taken in pledge must be restored when the sun went down, that the owner might sleep in his own raiment, or outer garment (Deut. 24:1313In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the Lord thy God. (Deuteronomy 24:13)). For bedsteads, simple couches were commonly used, and where there was no separate bed-chamber the divan on one side of the room, that was used for reclining on in the day, served for the bedstead at night. Doubtless light movable couches were also used as bedsteads, (2 Kings 4:1010Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither. (2 Kings 4:10)), under which a lamp could be placed, (Mark 6:2121And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; (Mark 6:21)), and on which the man was let down through the roof (Luke 5:1818And, 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. (Luke 5:18)). The bedstead of Og the giant king of Bashan was of iron, 9 cubits long (about 13 feet 6 inches) and 4 cubits wide (6 feet) (Deut. 3:1111For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. (Deuteronomy 3:11)).
