A Canaanite woman from that territory came [to him] and began to shout, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon."
But he did not answer her at all. Then his disciples came to him and urged him, "Send her away. She keeps shouting behind us."
Jesus responded, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the nation of Israel."
She came to him, bowed down, and said, "Lord, help me!"
Jesus replied, "It's not right to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs."
She said, "You're right, Lord. But even the dogs eat scraps that fall from their masters' tables."
Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, you have strong faith! What you wanted will be done for you." At that moment her daughter was cured.
Jesus moved on from there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up a mountain and sat there.
A large crowd came to him, bringing with them the lame, blind, disabled, those unable to talk, and many others. They laid them at his feet, and he cured them.
The crowd was amazed to see mute people talking, the disabled cured, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. So they praised the God of Israel.
Jesus called his disciples and said, "I feel sorry for the people. They have been with me three days now and have nothing to eat. I don't want to send them away hungry, or they may become exhausted on their way home."
