31 For this reason I say to you— every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to people. But the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven[a]. 32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven to him.

Footnotes

  1. Matthew 12:31 To attribute the works and power of Jesus to Satan is to speak against the Spirit empowering Him.
  2. Matthew 12:33 make the tree good... or... bad. That is, either make the tree (Jesus) good and the fruit (His works) good... or bad. You can’t say that His miracles are good and He is from Satan. Or, either make the tree (you Pharisees) good and its fruit (repentance, believing Jesus) good... or bad. Make your choice about Me!
