25 Jesus knew their thoughtsu and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satanv drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul,w by whom do your peoplex drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of Gody has come upon you.
