24 a From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre 1 and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be b hidden. 25 For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and c fell at His feet. 26 The woman was a 2 Greek, a 3 SyroPhoeni'cian by birth, and she kept 4 asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 But 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." 28 And she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs." 29 Then He said to her, "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter." 30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
