Mark 7:24-37

The Syrophoenician Woman

24 1Jesus got up and went away from there to the region of 2Tyre . And when He had entered a house, He wanted no one to know of it; yet He could not escape notice.
25 But after hearing of Him, a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately came and fell at His feet.
26 Now the woman was a Gentile, of the Syrophoenician race. And she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
27 And He was saying to her, "Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
28 But she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table feed on the children's crumbs."
29 And He said to her, "Because of this answer go; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
30 And going back to her home, she found the child lying on the bed, the demon having left.
31 3Again He went out from the region of 4Tyre, and came through Sidon to 5the Sea of Galilee, within * the region of 6Decapolis.
32 They brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they implored Him to 7lay His hand on him.
33 8Jesus took him aside from the crowd, by himself, and put His fingers into his ears, and after 9spitting, He touched his tongue with the saliva;
34 and looking up to heaven with a deep 10sigh, He said to him, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!"
35 And his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was removed, and he began speaking plainly.
36 And 11He gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they 12continued to proclaim it.
37 They were utterly astonished, saying, "He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."
