The Syrophoenician Woman

21 1Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of 2Tyre and 3Sidon. 22 And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, 4Son of David ; my daughter is cruelly 5demon-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 aat us." 24 But He answered and said, "I was sent only to 6the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came and 7began bto bow down before Him, saying, "Lord, help me!" 26 And He answered and said, "It is not cgood to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 27 But she said, "Yes, Lord ; dbut even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus said to her, "O woman, 8your faith is great ; it shall be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed eat once .

Healing Crowds

29 9Departing from there, Jesus went along by 10the Sea of Galilee, and having gone up on the mountain, He was sitting there. 30 And flarge crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet ; and 11He healed them. 31 So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled grestored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing ; and they 12glorified the God of Israel.

Four Thousand Fed

32 13And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, "14I feel compassion for the hpeople, because they ihave remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat ; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way." 33 The disciples said to Him, "Where would we get so many loaves in this desolate place to satisfy such a large crowd ?" 34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have ?" And they said, "Seven, and a few small fish." 35 And He directed the jpeople to ksit down on the ground ; 36 and He took the seven loaves and the fish ; and 15giving thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven large 16baskets full. 38 And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And sending away the crowds, Jesus got into 17the boat and came to the region of 18Magadan.
