Mark 3:20-35 Darby’s Translation

A Divided House Cannot Stand

20  And again a crowd comes together, so that they cannot even eat bread. 21  And his relatives having heard [of it] went out to lay hold on him, for they said, He is out of his mind.

22  And the scribes who had come down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the prince of the demons he casts out demons. 23  And having called them to [him], he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24  And if a kingdom has become divided against itself, that kingdom cannot subsist. 25  And if a house has become divided against itself, that house cannot subsist. 26  And if Satan rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot subsist, but has an end. 27  But no one can, having entered into his house, plunder the goods of the strong [man] unless he first bind the strong [man], and then he will plunder his house. 28  Verily I say unto you, that all sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and all the injurious speeches [with] which they may speak injuriously; 29  but whosoever shall speak injuriously against the Holy Spirit, to eternity has no forgiveness; but lies under the guilt of an everlasting sin; 30  —because they said, He has an unclean spirit.

Jesus' Mother and Brethren

31  And his brethren and his mother come, and standing without sent to him calling him. 32  And a crowd sat around him. And they said to him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren seek thee without. 33  And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother or my brethren? 34  And looking around in a circuit at those that were sitting around him, he says, Behold my mother and my brethren: 35  for whosoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.
