Matthew 12:41-50 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible
41 The people of Nineveh1 will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah,2 and now onea greater than Jonah is here. 42 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came3 from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here. 43 "When an evilb spirit comes out of anyone, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.4 That is how it will be with this wicked generation."

Jesus' Mother and Brothers

12:46-50pp -- Mk 3:31-35; Lk 8:19-21

46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother5 and brothers6 stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you." 48 He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven7 is my brother and sister and mother."
