3:20 And he came into a house ...
  and again a crowd came together ...
  so that they were not able to eat bread.
3:21 And hearing (this) ...
  his family came out to control him ...
  for they said that ... "he is out beside himself"
3:22 And the scribes, the ones having come down from Jerusalem ...
  they were saying that he has Beelzebul ...
  and for the "ruler of the demons" he casts out the demons.
3:23 And having called them before him in "parables," he says to them ...
  How is it possible for "satan" to cast out an "opponent?"
3:24 And if a kingdom is divided against itself ...
  it is not possible for that kingdom to stand.
3:25 And if a house is divided against itself ...
  it will not be possible for that house to stand.
3:26 And if an opponent stood up against himself ...
  and (if a kingdom and house) was divided (against itself) ...
  it is not possible to stand ... but he has an end.
3:27 But no one is able having entered into the house of the strong to plunder his vessels ...
  unless first, he binds the strong ...
  and then he will plunder his house.
3:28 "Amen" ... I say to you ...
  that all will be forgiven ...
  the sins of the "Sons of Men" ...
  and the blasphemies ...
  whatever, if ever they may be blaspheming.
3:29 Yet who ever should be blaspheming into the "Holy Spirit" ...
  is not having forgiveness into eternity ...
  but is guilty of an eternal sin.
3:30 For they were saying ... He has an "unclean spirit."

The Family Circle of Jesus

3:31 And his mother comes ...
  and his brothers ...
  and standing outside, they stand away before him, calling him.
3:32 And a crowd was sitting around him ...
  and they are saying to him ... Behold, your mother and your brothers ...
  [and your sisters] outside looking for you.
3:33 And having answered them he says ... Who are my mother and brothers?
3:34 And looking around at the ones around him sitting in a circle ...
  he says ... Behold my mother ...
  and my brothers.
3:35 For whoever does the will of God ...
  this one is my brother, and sister, and mother.
