Returned with joy (upestrepsan meta cara). They had profited by the directions of Jesus. Joy overflows their faces and their words. Even the demons (kai ta daimonia). This was a real test. The Twelve had been expressly endowed with this power when they were sent out ( Luke 9:1 ), but the Seventy were only told to heal the sick ( Luke 10:9 ). It was better than they expected. The Gospel worked wonders and they were happy. The demons were merely one sign of the conflict between Christ and Satan. Every preacher has to grapple with demons in his work. Are subject (upotassetai). Present passive indicative (repetition).
