Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of tyre and Sidon. A Canaanite woman from the area, came and cried out, ” Lord, Son of David, have pity on me! My daughter is tormented by a demon,” But Jesus did not answer her, not even a word, So his disciple approached him and said, ” Send her away! See how she is shouting after us.”
Then Jesus said to her, ” I was sent only to the lost sheep of the nation of Israel.” But the woman was already kneeling before Jesus, and said, “Sir, help me!” Jesus answer, “It is not right to take the bread from the children and throw it to puppies.” The woman replied “That is true, Sir, but even puppies eat the crumbs which fall from their master’s table.” Then Jesus said, “Woman how great is your faith! Let it be as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.
