23 And he clepide hem togidir, and he seide to hem in parablis, Hou may Sathanas caste out Sathanas?
24 And if a rewme be departid ayens it silf, thilke rewme may not stonde.
25 And if an hous be disparpoilid on it silf, thilke hous may not stonde.
26 And if Sathanas hath risun ayens hym silf, he is departid, and he schal not mowe stonde, but hath an ende.

28 Treuli Y seie to you, that alle synnes and blasfemyes, bi whiche thei han blasfemed, schulen be foryouun to the sones of men.
