Return of an Unclean Spirit
k "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, l he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.
"Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
"Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; m and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation."
