Matthew - Chapter 12
2 The Pharisees noticed it and said to him, 'Look, your disciples are doing something that is forbidden on the Sabbath.'
4 how he went into the house of God and they ate the loaves of the offering although neither he nor his followers were permitted to eat them, but only the priests?
8 For the Son of man is master of the Sabbath.'
11 But he said to them, 'If any one of you here had only one sheep and it fell down a hole on the Sabbath day, would he not get hold of it and lift it out?
14 At this the Pharisees went out and began to plot against him, discussing how to destroy him.
17 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:
19 he will not brawl or cry out, his voice is not heard in the streets,
20 he will not break the crushed reed, or snuff the faltering wick,
21 until he has made judgement victorious; in him the nations will put their hope.
22 Then they brought to him a blind and dumb demoniac; and he cured him, so that the dumb man could speak and see.
26 Now if Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself; so how can his kingdom last?
29 'Or again, how can anyone make his way into a strong man's house and plunder his property unless he has first tied up the strong man? Only then can he plunder his house.
34 You brood of vipers, how can your speech be good when you are evil? For words flow out of what fills the heart.
35 Good people draw good things from their store of goodness; bad people draw bad things from their store of badness.
36 So I tell you this, that for every unfounded word people utter they will answer on Judgement Day,
37 since it is by your words you will be justified, and by your words condemned.'
41 On Judgement Day the men of Nineveh will appear against this generation and they will be its condemnation, because when Jonah preached they repented; and look, there is something greater than Jonah here.
42 On Judgement Day the Queen of the South will appear against this generation and be its condemnation, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and look, there is something greater than Solomon here.
43 'When an unclean spirit goes out of someone it wanders through waterless country looking for a place to rest, and cannot find one.
44 Then it says, "I will return to the home I came from." But on arrival, finding it unoccupied, swept and tidied,
45 it then goes off and collects seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and set up house there, and so that person ends up worse off than before. That is what will happen to this wicked generation.'

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
