Jesus Helps a Non-Jewish Woman
24Jesus left that place and went to the area around Tyre. Jesus went into a house
there. Jesus did not want the people in that area to know he was there. But Jesus
could not stay hidden. 25A woman heard that Jesus was there. Her little daughter
had an evil spirit [from the devil] inside her. So the woman came to Jesus and
bowed down near his feet. 26The woman was not a Jew. She was Greek, born in Phoenicia,
an area in Syria. The woman begged Jesus to force the demon* out of her daughter.
27Jesus told the woman: "It is not right to take the children's bread and give it
to the dogs. First let the children eat all they want." 28The woman answered, "That
is true, Lord. But the dogs under the table can eat the pieces of food that the
children don't eat." 29Then Jesus told the woman, "That is a very good answer. You
may go. The demon* has left your daughter." 30The woman went home and found her
daughter lying on the bed. The demon was gone.
Jesus Heals a Deaf Man
31Then Jesus left the area around Tyre and went through Sidon. Jesus went to Lake
Galilee. Jesus went through the area of the Ten Towns.* 32While he was there, some
people brought a man to him. This man was deaf and could not talk. The people begged
Jesus to put his hand on the man [to heal him]. 33Jesus led the man away from the
people to be alone with him. Jesus put his fingers in the man's ears. Then Jesus
spit and touched the man's tongue. 34Jesus looked up to the sky and made a breathing
sound. Jesus said to the man, "Ephphatha!" (This means, "Open!") 35When Jesus did
this, the man was able to hear. The man was able to use his tongue and spoke clearly.
36Jesus commanded the people not to tell any person about what happened. Jesus always
commanded people not to tell other people about him. But this only caused the people
to tell about him more and more. 37The people were really amazed. The people said,
"Jesus does everything in a good way. Jesus makes deaf people able to hear. And
people that can't talk--Jesus makes them able to talk."
