|And the scribes who had descended from Jerusalem said, “Because he has Beelzebub, and because by the prince of demons does he cast out demons.”
|And having called them together, he spoke to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan?
|For if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom is not able to stand.
|And if a house is divided against itself, that house is not able to stand.
|And if Satan has risen up against himself, he would be divided, and he would not be able to stand; instead he reaches the end.
|No one is able to plunder the goods of a strong man, having entered into the house, unless he first binds the strong man, and then he shall plunder his house.
|Amen I say to you, that all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and the blasphemies by which they will have blasphemed.
|But he who will have blasphemed against the Holy Spirit shall not have forgiveness in eternity; instead he shall be guilty of an eternal offense.”
|For they said: “He has an unclean spirit.”
