The Evangeliad (14:24-27)


Section 14:24-27 (corresponding to Lk. 11:21-23Mt. 12:29-30; Mk. 3:27)

Can anyone enter a strong man's house,
To plunder his goods and safely get out,
Unless the strong man himself they would bind,
To keep him from thwarting what they have in mind?

A strong man, armed, guards his palace in peace,
But suppose one stronger appears on the scene.
Then the stronger will triumph and overcome,
And despoil the first man's armor and home.

Who then has more strength? The demons or I?
Just look at my works, and you can decide.
Those people not with me, against me are,
And those not with me scatter wide and far.
