A Canaanite Woman’s Great Faith

21 And departing from there, Jesus went away to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that district came [and] cried out, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter [is] severely possessed by a demon!" 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came up [and]a asked him, saying, "Send her away, because she is crying out after us!" 24 But he answered [and]b said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came [and]c knelt down before him, saying, "Lord, help me!" 26 And he answered [and]d said, "It is not right to take the children's bread and throw [it]e to the dogs!" 27 So she said, "Yes, Lord, for even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table." 28 Then Jesus answered [and] said to her, "O woman, your faith [is] great! Let it be done for you as you want." And her daughter was healed from that hour.
