The Desire for Signs

38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him, "Teacher, 1we want to see a asign from You." 39 But He answered and said to them, "2An evil and adulterous generation craves for a bsign; and yet no csign will be given to it but the dsign of Jonah the prophet; 40 for just as 3JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER, so will 4the Son of Man be 5three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 "6The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because 7they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, 8something greater than Jonah is here. 42 "9The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, 10something greater than Solomon is here. 43 "11Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. 44 "Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came '; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. 45 "Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and 12the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."
