Matthew: 12
40For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41The men of Nin'eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. 43"When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through waterless places seeking rest, but he finds none. 44Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45Then he goes and brings with him seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. So shall it be also with this evil generation." 46While he was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. 47[Other ancient authorities insert verse 47 ...] [someone told him, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, asking to speak to you"] 48But he replied to the man who told him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers! 50For whosoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother."
