But immediately a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit heard of him and came and fell down at his feet.
1Now the woman was a 2Gentile, 3a Syrophoenician by birth. And she begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
And he said to her, "Let the children be 4fed first, for it is not right to take the children's bread and 5throw it to the dogs."
But she answered him, "Yes, Lord; yet even the dogs under the table eat the children's 6crumbs."
And he said to her, "For this statement you may 7go your way; the demon has left your daughter."
And she went home and found the child lying in bed and the demon gone.
8Then he returned from the region of Tyre and went through Sidon to 9the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the 10Decapolis.
