|Luke 11:14-26. καὶ ἦν ἐκβάλλων δαιμόνιον [, καὶ αὐτὸ
ἦν] κωφόν: ἐγένετο δὲ τοῦ δαιμονίου ἐξελθόντος ἐλάλησεν ὁ κωφός. καὶ
ἐθαύμασαν οἱ ὄχλοι: τινὲς δὲ ἐξ αὐτῶν εἶπον, ἐν βεελζεβοὺλ τῷ ἄρχοντι
τῶν δαιμονίων ἐκβάλλει τὰ δαιμόνια: ἕτεροι δὲ πειράζοντες σημεῖον ἐξ
οὐρανοῦ ἐζήτουν παρ' αὐτοῦ. αὐτὸς δὲ εἰδὼς αὐτῶν τὰ διανοήματα εἶπεν
αὐτοῖς, πᾶσα βασιλεία ἐφ' ἑαυτὴν διαμερισθεῖσα ἐρημοῦται, καὶ οἶκος ἐπὶ
οἶκον πίπτει. εἰ δὲ καὶ ὁ σατανᾶς ἐφ' ἑαυτὸν διεμερίσθη, πῶς σταθήσεται
ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ; ὅτι λέγετε ἐν βεελζεβοὺλ ἐκβάλλειν με τὰ δαιμόνια.
εἰ δὲ ἐγὼ ἐν βεελζεβοὺλ ἐκβάλλω τὰ δαιμόνια, οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν ἐν τίνι ἐκβάλλουσιν;
διὰ τοῦτο αὐτοὶ ὑμῶν κριταὶ ἔσονται. εἰ δὲ ἐν δακτύλῳ θεοῦ [ἐγὼ] ἐκβάλλω
τὰ δαιμόνια, ἄρα ἔφθασεν ἐφ' ὑμᾶς ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ. ὅταν ὁ ἰσχυρὸς
καθωπλισμένος φυλάσσῃ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ αὐλήν, ἐν εἰρήνῃ ἐστὶν τὰ ὑπάρχοντα
αὐτοῦ: ἐπὰν δὲ ἰσχυρότερος αὐτοῦ ἐπελθὼν νικήσῃ αὐτόν, τὴν πανοπλίαν
αὐτοῦ αἴρει ἐφ' ᾗ ἐπεποίθει, καὶ τὰ σκῦλα αὐτοῦ διαδίδωσιν. ὁ μὴ ὢν μετ'
ἐμοῦ κατ' ἐμοῦ ἐστιν, καὶ ὁ μὴ συνάγων μετ' ἐμοῦ σκορπίζει. ὅταν τὸ ἀκάθαρτον
πνεῦμα ἐξέλθῃ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, διέρχεται δι' ἀνύδρων τόπων ζητοῦν ἀνάπαυσιν,
καὶ μὴ εὑρίσκον, [τότε] λέγει, ὑποστρέψω εἰς τὸν οἶκόν μου ὅθεν ἐξῆλθον:
καὶ ἐλθὸν εὑρίσκει σεσαρωμένον καὶ κεκοσμημένον. τότε πορεύεται καὶ παραλαμβάνει
ἕτερα πνεύματα πονηρότερα ἑαυτοῦ ἑπτά, καὶ εἰσελθόντα κατοικεῖ ἐκεῖ,
καὶ γίνεται τὰ ἔσχατα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκείνου χείρονα τῶν πρώτων.
||Luke 11:14-26. And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it
came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people
wondered. But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub
the chief of the devils. And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign
from heaven. But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom
divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against
a house falleth. If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his
kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out?
therefore shall they be your judges. But if I with the finger of God cast
out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. When a strong
man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger
than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his
armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. He that is not with
me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. When the
unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking
rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I
came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth
he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and
they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse
than the first.
