3:26 And (kai) if (ei) the (ho) Satan (Satanas) stood up (anestē) over (eph’) [the sake] of himself (heauton) and (kai) he was divided (emeristhē), he can absolutely not inherently power himself (ou dunatai) to stand (stēnai), BUT (alla), he has (echei) an end (telos)!


3:27 BUT (all’), absolutely not one (oudeis) having entered in (eiselthōn) into (eis) the (tēn) house (oikian) of the (tou) strong one (ischurou), he can absolutely not inherently power himself (ou dunatai) to snatch through (diarpasai) the (ta) vessels (skeuē) of him (autou), if perhaps (ean) he may not first bind (mē prōton dēsē) the (ton) strong one (ischuron)!

3:29 But (d’) whoever (hos) perhaps (an) may blaspheme (blasphēmēsē) into (eis) the (to) Spirit (pneuma), the (to) holy one (hagion), he absolutely does not have (ouk echei) a letting go (aphesin) [of sins] into (eis) the (ton) age (aiōna)!


BUT (alla), he is (estin) one held (enochos) of ageless (aiōniou) sin (hamatēmatos)!”,

They search (zētousin) for you (se).”


3:33 And (kai) having answered (apokritheis) them (autois), he says (legei), “Who (tis) is (estin) the (hē) mother (mētēr) of me (mou), and (kai) the (hoi) brothers (adelphoi) of me (mou)?”


3:34 And (kai) having caused himself to look around at (periblepsamenos) the ones (tous) around (peri) him (auton) causing themselves to sit down (kathēmenous) circularly (kuklō), he says (legei), “Behold (idou), the (hē) mother (mētēr) of me (mou), and (kai) the (hoi) brothers (adelphoi) of me (mou)!


3:35 Because (gar) perhaps (an) whoever (hos) may do (poiēsē) the (to) desire (thelēma) of the (tou) God (theou), this one (houtos) is (estin) a brother (adelphos), and (kai) a sister (adelphē), and (kai) a mother (mētēr) of me (mou).”
