Matthew 12:41-50 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
41 "1The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because 2they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, 3something greater than Jonah is here. 42 "4The 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, 5something greater than Solomon is here. 43 "6Now 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 7the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."
