And a Canaanitewoman from that regioncame out and began to cry out, saying, "Havemercy on me, Lord, 4Son of David ; my daughter is cruelly5demon-possessed."
But He did not answer her a word. And His disciplescame and implored Him, saying, "Send her away, because she keeps shoutingaat us."
But He answered and said, "I was sentonly to 6the lostsheep of the house of Israel."25
But she came and 7began bto bowdownbefore Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"
And He answered and said, "It is not cgood to take the children'sbread and throw it to the dogs."27
But she said, "Yes, Lord ; dbut even the dogsfeed on the crumbs which fall from their masters'table."
28ThenJesussaid to her, "Owoman, 8your faith is great ; it shall be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healedeat once .

And Jesussaid to them, "Howmanyloaves do you have ?" And they said, "Seven, and a fewsmallfish."
And He directed the jpeople to ksitdown on the ground ;
and He took the sevenloaves and the fish ; and 15givingthanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
