||And again, departing from the borders of Tyre, he went by way of Sidon to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the area of the Ten Cities.
||And they brought someone who was deaf and mute to him. And they begged him, so that he would lay his hand upon him.
||And taking him away from the crowd, he put his fingers into his ears; and spitting, he touched his tongue.
||And gazing up to heaven, he groaned and said to him: “Ephphatha,” which is, “Be opened.”
||And immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was released, and he spoke correctly.
||And he instructed them not to tell anyone. But as much as he instructed them, so much more did they preach about it.
||And so much more did they wonder, saying: “He has done all things well. He has caused both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”
