Matthew 12:29 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

29 [a]How can anyone enter a strong man’s house and steal his property, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.


  1. 12:29 A short parable illustrates what Jesus is doing. The strong man is Satan, whom Jesus has tied up and whose house he is plundering. Jewish expectation was that Satan would be chained up in the last days (Rev 20:2); Jesus’ exorcisms indicate that those days have begun.
