What does Mark 3:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 3:11

And unclean spirits, when they saw him
That is, as the Syriac and Arabic versions read, "they who had unclean spirits": or, as the Ethiopic, "they that were possessed with unclean spirits"; as soon as ever they beheld Christ, though they had never seen him before, and he was an entire stranger to them, yet

fell down before him:
the unclean spirits being said to do that, which they that were possessed with them did; and which, notwithstanding their possession of them, they could not prevent, but were obliged to admit of it, as a token of their subjection to Christ:

and
even the devils themselves in the men,

cried, saying, thou art the Son of God;
a divine person, equal with God; and such his power over them, and his healing all manner of diseases, by a word, or touch, showed him to be.
