The Syrophoenician Woman’s Faith
24 From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. He entered a house and would have no one know it. Yet He could not be hidden. 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him, and came and fell at His feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. And she begged Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
27 Jesus said to her, “Let the children first be filled. For it is not fitting to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
28 She answered, “Yes, Lord. Yet the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
29 Then He said to her, “For this answer, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter.”
30 When she had come to her house, she found the demon had gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.
