“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:”
King James Version (KJV)
12:25 Jesus knowing their thoughts - It seems they had as yet only said it in their hearts.
Mt 12:25 Knew their thoughts. They had not made this charge to Christ, but to the multitudes. Every city or house divided against itself. A general truth is stated. Most states and kingdoms fall, not by the power of foreign enemies, but by the weakness due to divisions.
