Wenn ein starker Gewappneter seinen Palast bewahret,
so bleibet das Seine mit Frieden.
Aber: ein jeglich Reich, so es mit ihm selbst uneins wird,
das wird wüste; und ein Haus fället über das andere.

Luk.11,22/17b

(literal translation)
When a strong armed man guards his palace
His property will remain in peace
But any kingdom that is divided amongst itself
Will be laid waste
and one house will fall upon another…
When a strong armed man guards his palace
His property will remain in peace
