Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit
And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, s "He has Beelzebub," and, "By the t ruler of the demons He casts out demons."
u So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: "How can Satan cast out Satan?
"If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
"And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
"And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.
v "No one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
w "Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter;
"but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation" -
because they x said, "He has an unclean spirit."

Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
Of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
In which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.

Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, Or the captives of the righteous be delivered?
But thus says the LORD: "Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children.

Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.
Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
And anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven.
