But immediately a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit heard of him and came and fell down at his feet.
t Now the woman was a u Gentile, v a Syrophoenician by birth. And she begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
And he said to her, "Let the children be w fed first, for it is not right to take the children's bread and x throw it to the dogs."
But she answered him, "Yes, Lord; yet even the dogs under the table eat the children's y crumbs."
And he said to her, "For this statement you may z go your way; the demon has left your daughter."
And she went home and found the child lying in bed and the demon gone.
