Mark 7:24-37

NLT 24 Then Jesus left Galilee and went north to the region of Tyre. He didn’t want anyone to know which house he was staying in, but he couldn’t keep it a secret. NIV 24 Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. NLT 25 Right away a woman who had heard about him came and fell at his feet. Her little girl was possessed by an evil spirit, NIV 25 In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an impure spirit came and fell at his feet. NLT 26 and she begged him to cast out the demon from her daughter. Since she was a Gentile, born in Syrian Phoenicia, NIV 26 The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter. NLT 27 Jesus told her, “First I should feed the children—my own family, the Jews. It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs.” NIV 27 “First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” NLT 28 She replied, “That’s true, Lord, but even the dogs under the table are allowed to eat the scraps from the children’s plates.” NIV 28 “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” NLT 29 “Good answer!” he said. “Now go home, for the demon has left your daughter.” NIV 29 Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.” NLT 30 And when she arrived home, she found her little girl lying quietly in bed, and the demon was gone. NIV 30 She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone. NLT 31 Jesus left Tyre and went up to Sidon before going back to the Sea of Galilee and the region 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. NLT 32 A deaf man with a speech impediment was brought to him, and the people begged Jesus to lay his hands on the man to heal him. NIV 32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him. NLT 33 Jesus led him away from the crowd so they could be alone. He put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then, spitting on his own fingers, he touched 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. NLT 34 Looking up to heaven, he sighed and said, which means, “Be opened!” NIV 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). NLT 35 Instantly the man could hear perfectly, and his tongue was freed so he could speak plainly! NIV 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. NLT 36 Jesus told the crowd not to tell anyone, but the more he told them not to, the more they spread the news. NIV 36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. NLT 37 They were completely amazed and said again and again, “Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak.” NIV 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”
