John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 12:44

Whence he came out — He speaks as if he had come out of his own accord: See his pride! He findeth it empty — of God, of Christ, of his Spirit: Swept — from love, lowliness, meekness, and all the fruits of the Spirit: And garnished — With levity and security: so that there is nothing to keep him out, and much to invite him in.
