Mark 7:29-37

MSG 29 Jesus was impressed. "You're right! On your way! Your daughter is no longer disturbed. The demonic affliction is gone." NIV 29 Then he told her, "For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter." MSG 30 She went home and found her daughter relaxed on the bed, the torment gone for good. NIV 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. MSG 31 Then he left the region of Tyre, went through Sidon back to Galilee Lake and over to the district of the Ten Towns. NIV 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. MSG 32 Some people brought a man who could neither hear nor speak and asked Jesus to lay a healing hand on him. NIV 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. MSG 33 He took the man off by himself, put his fingers in the man's ears and some spit on the man's tongue. NIV 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. MSG 34 Then Jesus looked up in prayer, groaned mightily, and commanded, "Ephphatha! - Open up!" NIV 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, ""Ephphatha!"" (which means, "Be opened!"). MSG 35 And it happened. The man's hearing was clear and his speech plain - just like that. NIV 35 At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. MSG 36 Jesus urged them to keep it quiet, but they talked it up all the more, NIV 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. MSG 37 beside themselves with excitement. "He's done it all and done it well. He gives hearing to the deaf, speech to the speechless." NIV 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. "He has done everything well," they said. "He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak."
