In fact, a woman whose young daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit heard about him right away. She came and fell at his feet.
The woman was Greek, Syrophoenician by birth. She begged Jesus to throw the demon out of her daughter.
He responded, "The children have to be fed first. It isn't right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs."
But she answered, "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs."
"Good answer!" he said. "Go on home. The demon has already left your daughter."
When she returned to her house, she found the child lying on the bed and the demon gone.
After leaving the region of Tyre, Jesus went through Sidon toward the Galilee Sea through the region of the Ten Cities.
