An Unclean Spirit Returns

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44  Then he said, I will return into my house from where I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then he goes, and takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
