The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
29 Jesus was impressed. "You're right! On your way! Your daughter is no longer disturbed. The demonic affliction is gone." 29 Then he told her, "For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter."
30 She went home and found her daughter relaxed on the bed, the torment gone for good. 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
31 Then he left the region of Tyre, went through Sidon back to Galilee Lake and over to the district of the Ten Towns. 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 Some people brought a man who could neither hear nor speak and asked Jesus to lay a healing 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 the man off by himself, put his fingers in the man's ears and some spit on the man's 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 Jesus looked up in prayer, groaned mightily, and commanded, "Ephphatha! - Open up!" 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, ""Ephphatha!"" (which means, "Be opened!").
35 And it happened. The man's hearing was clear and his speech plain - just like that. 35 At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.
36 Jesus urged them to keep it quiet, but they talked it up all the more, 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it.
37 beside themselves with excitement. "He's done it all and done it well. He gives hearing to the deaf, speech to the speechless." 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. "He has done everything well," they said. "He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak."
