5. The Rejecting Generation Becoming Worse
vv.43-45

43 aWhen the unclean spirit goes out from the man, it roams through 1waterless places, seeking rest, and does not find it.

44 Then it says, I will return to my house from which I came out. And it comes and finds it unoccupied, swept, and decorated.

45 Then it goes and takes along with itself seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter in and settle down there. And the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. Thus shall it be also with 1this aevil generation.
