Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 12:26

_ _ And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? — The argument here is irresistible. “No organized society can stand — whether kingdom, city, or household — when turned against itself; such intestine war is suicidal: But the works I do are destructive of Satan’s kingdom: That I should be in league with Satan, therefore, is incredible and absurd.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 12:22-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 12:26

How shall his kingdom be established — Does not that subtle spirit know thin is not the way to establish his kingdom?
