When an unclean spirit leaves a man, it wanders through the desert looking for rest, and finding none. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house from whence I came’, and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied and swept clean. Then it returns with seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and dwell there, and the person is worse off than before.
How can one break into a strong man’s house and take his property, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder the house. He who is not with me is against me, he who doesn’t gather with me, scatters.
