4. Binding Satan and Plundering His House
22 1And the 2scribes who came down from aJerusalem bsaid, He chas 3dBeelzebul, and by the 4eruler of the demons He casts out the demons.
23 And He called them to Himself and said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
24 And if a 1akingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom is not able to stand;
25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand;
26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he is not able to stand but has come to an end.
27 But no one can enter into the house of the strong man and thoroughly aplunder his 1goods unless he first 2bbinds the strong man, and then he will thoroughly plunder his house.
28 Truly I say to you that all sins will be aforgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they bblaspheme,
29 But whoever blasphemes against the 1Holy aSpirit has no forgiveness forever, but is guilty of an 2everlasting sin.
30 He said this because they said, He has an unclean spirit.
