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.
30 “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.z 31 And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.a 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this ageb or in the age to come.c
33 “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.d 34 You brood of vipers,e how can you who are evil say anything good?

And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.q That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”
