MT 12:18 He shall not strive [quarrel WU], nor cry [shout]; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. MT 12:19 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax [wick WU] shall he not quench, CHARACTER till he send forth judgment [leads justice] unto victory. MT 12:20 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. MT 12:21

MT 12:24 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: MT 12:25 UNITY And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? MT 12:26 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children [sons WU] cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. MT 12:27 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. MT 12:28 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil [plunder] his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. MT 12:29 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. MT 12:30 UNBELIEF Wherefore [therefore] I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost [Spirit] shall not be forgiven unto men. MT 12:31 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. MT 12:32 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Hating Good Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

MT 12:35 But I say unto you, That every idle [careless WU] word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in [for on WU] the day of judgment. MT 12:36 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. MT 12:37 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS It Comes Out Then certain of the scribes [experts in the law WU] and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would [want to] see a [miraculous WU] sign from thee. MT 12:38 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas [Jonah]: MT 12:39 UNBELIEF Darkness For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. MT 12:40 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a [someone] greater than Jonas is here. MT 12:41 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

MT 12:47 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren [brothers]?
