What does Luke 11:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 11:26

Then goeth he and taketh to him seven other spirits,
&c.] Or "demons", as the Ethiopic version, whom he took to him as his consorts and companions, as the same version calls them.

More wicked than himself;
for it seems there are degrees of wickedness among the devils, as well as among men:

and they enter and dwell there;
the unclean spirit, and the other seven: so seven devils were in Mary Magdalene, and a legion in another man; and indeed the evil heart of man is an habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit: here it may chiefly design the place and power which the devil had among the Jews before their destruction:

and the last state of that man is worse than the first;
the Persic version adds, "and more miserable"; as was the case of the Jews, to which this parable refers; as appears by what is subjoined in Matthew, which manifestly applies it to them,

even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation;
(See Gill on Matthew 12:45).
