Canaanite woman's daughter
Jesus tests the faith of a Canaanite woman as she begs for Jesus to heal her daughter
7:24 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know
: but he could not be hid.
7:25 For a
woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
7:26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
7:27 But Jesus said unto her,
Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast
unto the dogs.
7:28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes. Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.
7:29 And he said unto her,
For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
7:30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord,
Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
15:24 But he answered and said,
I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
15:26 But he answered and said,
It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast
15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her,
O woman, great
thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.
And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
