Matthew 12:41-50 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
41 There will stand up men of Nineveh at the Judgement together with the present generation, and will condemn it; because they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and mark! there is One greater than Jonah here. 42 The Queen of the south will awake at the Judgement together with the present generation, and will condemn it; because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and mark! there is One greater than Solomon here. 43 "No sooner however has the foul spirit gone out of the man, then he roams about in places where there is no water, seeking rest but finding none. 44 Then he says, `I will return to my house that I left;' and he comes and finds it unoccupied, swept clean, and in good order. 45 Then he goes and brings back with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they come in and dwell there; and in the end that man's condition becomes worse than it was at first. So will it be also with the present wicked generation." 46 While He was still addressing the people His mother and His brothers were standing on the edge of the crowd desiring to speak to Him. 47 So some one told Him, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, and desire to speak to you." 48 "Who is my mother?" He said to the man; "and who are my brothers?" 49 And pointing to His disciples He added, "See here are my mother and my brothers. 50 To obey my Father who is in Heaven--that is to be my brother and my sister and my mother."
