21 g And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, h a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, i "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon." 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, j "Send her away, for she is crying out after us." 24 He answered, k "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came and l knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." 26 And he answered, "It is not right to take the children's bread and m throw it to the dogs." 27 She said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat n the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus answered her, "O woman, o great is your faith! p Be it done for you as you desire." q And her daughter was p healed instantly. 1English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
