And he [Jesus WU] was casting out a devil [demon], and it was dumb [mute]. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb [man] spake; and the people wondered [marveled]. LK 11:14 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. LK 11:15 And others, tempting [testing] him, sought of him a sign from heaven. LK 11:16

But he [Jesus WU], knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house [itself] falleth. LK 11:17 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? {I ask this WU] because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. LK 11:18 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. LK 11:19 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. LK 11:20 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace [dwelling], his goods are in peace [safe]: LK 11:21 But when a stronger [one WU] than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth [up WU] his spoils [plunder WU]. LK 11:22 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. LK 11:23 When the unclean [evil WU] spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my [the WU] house whence [from which] I came out. LK 11:24 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished [put in order]. LK 11:25 Then goeth he, and taketh to [with WU] him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. LK 11:26

And it came to pass, as he [Jesus WU] spake these things, a certain woman of the company [crowd WU] lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare [bore] thee, and the paps [breasts] which thou hast sucked [nursed you]. LK 11:27 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep [obey WU] it. LK 11:28 APPLY Can't Fool

And when the people were gathered thick together, he [Jesus WU] began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas [Jonah] the prophet. LK 11:29 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. LK 11:30 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a [one] greater than Solomon is here. LK 11:31 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. LK 11:32 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel [basket], but on a candlestick [stand], that they which come in may see the light. LK 11:33 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single [good], thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil [bad WU], thy body also is full of darkness. LK 11:34 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. LK 11:35 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle [lamp] doth give thee light. LK 11:36

And as he [Jesus WU] spake, a certain Pharisee besought [asked] him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat [at the table]. LK 11:37 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. LK 11:38 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter [plate WU]; but your inward part [inside WU] is full of ravening [greed WU] and wickedness. LK 11:39 UNBELIEF Deceit Ye fools [foolish ones], did not he that made that which is without [outside] make that which is within also? LK 11:40 But rather give [from your heart WU] alms [to the poor] of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are [will be] clean unto [for WU] you. LK 11:41 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe [give God a tenth of your WU] mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment [neglect justice WU] and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. LK 11:42 UNBELIEF Deceit Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost [most important WU] seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. LK 11:43 Woe unto you, scribes [experts in the law WU] and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not [are unmarked WU], and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. LK 11:44 UNBELIEF Deceit Then answered one of the lawyers [experts in religious law WU], and said unto him, Master [Teacher], thus [in] saying [this] thou reproachest [insult] us also. LK 11:45 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade [load] men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers [won't lift one finger to help carry them WU]. LK 11:46 UNBELIEF Deceit Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres [tombs] of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. LK 11:47 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow [approve of WU] the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. LK 11:48 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay [kill] and persecute: LK 11:49 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from [since] the foundation of the world, may be required of [held accountable to WU] this generation; LK 11:50 From the blood of Abel unto [to] the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily [yes] I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. LK 11:51 Woe unto you, lawyers [experts in the law WU]! for ye have taken away the key of [to WU] knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. LK 11:52 UNBELIEF Deceit
