Matthew 15:17-27 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
17 "Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is aeliminated ? 18 "But 1the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. 19 "2For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, bfornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. 20 "These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man."

The Syrophoenician Woman

21 3Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of 4Tyre and 5Sidon. 22 And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, 6Son of David; my daughter is cruelly 7demon-possessed." 23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, "Send her away, because she keeps shouting cat us." 24 But He answered and said, "I was sent only to 8the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came and 9began dto bow down before Him, saying, "Lord, help me!" 26 And He answered and said, "It is not egood to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 27 But she said, "Yes, Lord; fbut even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
