Day 58 – Visit Tyre and Sidon


From there Jesus arose and went away, and withdrew into the borders of the region of Tyre and Sidon. He entered into a house, and didn’t want anyone to know it, but he couldn’t escape notice. Behold, a Canaanite woman (having heard of him) came out from those borders, and fell down at his feet and cried, saying, “Have mercy on me, Lord, you son of David! My daughter is severely possessed by a demon!”

But he answered her not a word. Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter. His disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries after us.”

But he answered, “I wasn’t sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” But she came and worshiped him, answering, “Lord, help me.”

But Jesus answered her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”

But she said, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs (which fall from their masters’ table.”

Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, great is your faith! For this saying, go your way. Be it done to you even as you desire. The demon has gone out of your daughter.”

She went away to her house, and her daughter was healed from that hour, with the demon gone out.
