Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentLuke 11:24
- And finding none (kai mh euriskon).
- Here Matthew 12:43 has kai oux euriskei (present active indicative instead of present active participle). Luke 11:24-26 is almost verbatim like Matthew 12:43-45, which see. Instead of just "taketh" (paralambanei) in verse Luke 11:26, Matthew has "taketh with himself" (paralambanei met' eautou). And Luke omits: "Even so shall it be also unto this evil generation" of Matthew 12:45.
- Than the first (twn prwtwn).
- Ablative case after the comparative xeirona. The seven demons brought back remind one of the seven that afflicted Mary Magdalene (Luke 8:2).
