Mark 7:24-37

CEB 24 Jesus left that place and went into the region of Tyre. He didn't want anyone to know that he had entered a house, but he couldn't hide. NRS 24 From there he set out and went away to the region of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know he was there. Yet he could not escape notice, CEB 25 In fact, a woman whose young daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit heard about him right away. She came and fell at his feet. NRS 25 but a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she came and bowed down at his feet. CEB 26 The woman was Greek, Syrophoenician by birth. She begged Jesus to throw the demon out of her daughter. NRS 26 Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. CEB 27 He responded, "The children have to be fed first. It isn't right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs." NRS 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." CEB 28 But she answered, "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." NRS 28 But she answered him, "Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." CEB 29 "Good answer!" he said. "Go on home. The demon has already left your daughter." NRS 29 Then he said to her, "For saying that, you may go—the demon has left your daughter." CEB 30 When she returned to her house, she found the child lying on the bed and the demon gone. NRS 30 So she went home, found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. CEB 31 After leaving the region of Tyre, Jesus went through Sidon toward the Galilee Sea through the region of the Ten Cities. NRS 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. CEB 32 Some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly speak, and they begged him to place his hand on the man for healing. NRS 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. CEB 33 Jesus took him away from the crowd by himself and put his fingers in the man's ears. Then he spit and touched the man's tongue. NRS 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. CEB 34 Looking into heaven, Jesus sighed deeply and said, "Ephphatha," which means, "Open up." NRS 34 Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened." CEB 35 At once, his ears opened, his twisted tongue was released, and he began to speak clearly. NRS 35 And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. CEB 36 Jesus gave the people strict orders not to tell anyone. But the more he tried to silence them, the more eagerly they shared the news. NRS 36 Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. CEB 37 People were overcome with wonder, saying, "He does everything well! He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who can't speak." NRS 37 They were astounded beyond measure, saying, "He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."
