I know you who you are, the Holy One of God." But Jesus rebuked him, saying. "Be quit! Come out of him." read more.
So the unclean spirit, after tearing him, came out of him with a loud cry; and every one was amazed so that they began questioning among themselves. "What does this mean? A new teaching with authority? He lays commands even upon unclean spirits and they obey him."
