Mark 7 : 24 - 37

Chapter 7

24From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden.
25For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.
26The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
27But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
28And she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs."
29Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
30And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.
31Again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee.
32Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him.
33And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue.
34Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened."
35Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly.
36Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it.
37And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."
