New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
26 Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 26 The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.
27 He said to her, "Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs." 27 "First let the children eat all they want," he told her, "for it is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs."
28 But she answered him, "Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." 28 "Yes, Lord," she replied, "but even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs."
29 Then he said to her, "For saying that, you may go—the demon has left your daughter." 29 Then he told her, "For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter."
30 So she went home, found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
31 Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. 31 Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis.
32 They brought to him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him. 32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged him to place his hand on the man.
33 He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue. 33 After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man's ears. Then he spit and touched the man's tongue.
34 Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened." 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, ""Ephphatha!"" (which means, "Be opened!").
35 And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. 35 At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.
36 Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it.
