Mark 3:20-35 American Standard Version

A Divided House Cannot Stand

20  And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21  And when his friends heard it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.

22  And the scribes that came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and, By the prince of the demons casteth he out the demons. 23  And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24  And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25  And if a house be divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 26  And if Satan hath rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27  But no one can enter into the house of the strong [man], and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong [man]; and then he will spoil his house. 28  Verily I say unto you, All their sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and their blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29  but whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin: 30  because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Jesus' Mother and Brethren

31  And there come his mother and his brethren; and, standing without, they sent unto him, calling him. 32  And a multitude was sitting about him; and they say unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. 33  And he answereth them, and saith, Who is my mother and my brethren? 34  And looking round on them that sat round about him, he saith, Behold, my mother and my brethren! 35  For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
