Matthew 12:41-50 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
41 The men of Nineveh will stand up with you at the time of judgment and will condemn you, because they turned to God and changed the way they thought and acted when Jonah spoke his message. But look, someone greater than Jonah is here! 42 The queen from the south will stand up at the time of judgment with you. She will condemn you, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear Solomon's wisdom. But look, someone greater than Solomon is here! 43 "When an evil spirit comes out of a person, it goes through dry places looking for a place to rest. But it doesn't find any. 44 Then it says, 'I'll go back to the home I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean, and in order. 45 Then it goes and brings along seven other spirits more evil than itself. They enter and take up permanent residence there. In the end the condition of that person is worse than it was before. That is what will happen to the evil people of this day." 46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowds, his mother and brothers were standing outside. They wanted to talk to him. 47 Someone told him, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside. They want to talk to you." 48 He replied to the man speaking to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49 Pointing with his hand at his disciples, he said, "Look, here are my mother and my brothers. 50 Whoever does what my Father in heaven wants is my brother and sister and mother."
