30: He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.— edit KJV text
30: He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth.— edit Douay text


He that is not with me, etc. In addition to his other arguments, he urges this general principle that there could be but two parties in the universe. If any one did not act with him, he was against him. If he gathered not with him, he scattered. This is taken from the practice of persons in harvest, he that did not gather with him, or aid him, scattered abroad, or opposed him. The application of this was, "As I have not united with Satan, but opposed him, there can be no league between us." The charge, therefore, is a false one.
