7. The Faith of a Gentile Woman

21 aAnd Jesus went from there and withdrew into the parts of 1bTyre and Sidon.

22 And behold, a 1aCanaanite woman came out from those borders and cried out, saying, Have mercy on me, 2Lord, bSon of David! My daughter suffers terribly from demon possession.

23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, Send her away, for she is crying out after us.

24 But He answered and said, I was not 1sent except to the lost sheep of the ahouse of Israel.

25 But she came and 1aworshipped Him, saying, 2Lord, help me!

26 But He answered and said, It is not good to take the children's 1bread and throw it to the 2little adogs.

27 And she said, Yes, Lord, for even the little dogs eat of the 1crumbs which fall from their masters' atable.

28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, O woman, great is your afaith! Be it bdone to you as you wish. And her daughter was healed from that chour.
