Text and translations
Erat Jesus ejiciens daemonium Et illud erat mutum. Et cum ejecisset daemonium,
locutus est mutus, et admiratae sunt turbae.
Et dixit eis: 'Omne regnum in seipsum divisum, desolabitur.'
Jesus was driving out a demon, which was dumb. And when he had driven out the demon,
the dumb person spoke, and the people were amazed.
Tejeda adds the following (Luke 11:17):
And he said: Every kingdom divided against itself shall be brought to desolation.
