When a strong man, fully armed, guards his estate, his possessions are secure.
But when one stronger than he attacks and overpowers him, he takes from him all his weapons he trusted in, and divides up his plunder.
Anyone who is not with Me is against Me, and anyone who does not gather with Me scatters.
"When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it roams through waterless places looking for rest, and not finding rest, it then says, 'I'll go back to my house where I came from.'
And returning, it finds [the house] swept and put in order.
Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and settle down there. As a result, that man's last condition is worse than the first."
