25 Knowing their thoughts, 23 And he called them to him, 17 But knowing their thoughts,
  he said to them,   and said to them   he said to them,
      in parables,    
      "How can Satan    
      cast out Satan?    
  "Every kingdom 24 If a kingdom is   "Every kingdom
  divided against itself   divided against itself,   divided against itself
  is laid waste,       is laid waste,
      that kingdom cannot    
  and no city 25 And   and
  or house divided   if a house is divided   a divided household
  against itself   against itself,    
  will   that house will not be able    
  stand;   to stand.   falls.
26 and if Satan 26 And if Satan 18 And if Satan
  casts out Satan,   has risen up   also
  he is divided*   against himself*   is divided*
  against himself;*   and is divided,*   against himself,*
  how then        how
  will his kingdom stand?   he cannot stand,   will his kingdom stand?
      but is coming to an end.    
          For you say
          that I cast out demons
          by Beelzebul.
27 And if I cast out demons     19 And if I cast out demons
  by Beelzebul,       by Beelzebul,
  by whom       by whom
  do your sons cast them out?       do your sons cast them out?
  Therefore       Therefore
  they shall be your judges.       they shall be your judges.
28 But if it is     20 But if it is
  by the Spirit of God       by the finger of God
  that I cast out demons,       that I cast out demons,
  then the kingdom of God        then the kingdom of God 
  has come upon you.       has come upon you.
29 Or how can one enter 27 But no one can enter    
  a strong man's house   a strong man's house 21 When a strong man,
          fully armed,
          guards his own palace,
  and plunder his goods,   and plunder his goods,   his goods are in peace;
  unless he first binds   unless he first binds 22 but when
  the strong man?   the strong man;   one stronger than he
          assails him
          and overcomes him,
          he takes away his armor
          in which he trusted,
  Then indeed   then indeed    
  he may plunder his house.   he may plunder his house.   and divides his spoil.
30 He who is not with me     23 He who is not with me
  is against me,       is against me,
  and he who does not gather       and he who does not gather
  with me scatters.       with me scatters."
31 Therefore I tell you, 28 "Truly, I say to you,    
  every sin and blasphemy*   all sins    
  will be forgiven   will be forgiven      
  men,   the sons of men,    
      and whatever blasphemies*    
      they utter;    
  but the blasphemy


but whoever blasphemes    
  against the Spirit   against the Holy Spirit    
  will not be forgiven."   never has forgiveness,    
      but is guilty    
      of an eternal sin" --    


for they had said,    
      "He has an unclean spirit."
