|And rising up, he went from there to the area of Tyre and Sidon. And entering into a house, he intended no one to know about it, but he was not able to remain hidden.
|For a woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit, as soon as she heard about him, entered and fell prostrate at his feet.
|For the woman was a Gentile, by birth a Syro-Phoenician. And she petitioned him, so that he would cast the demon from her daughter.
|And he said to her: “First allow the sons to have their fill. For it is not good to take away the bread of the sons and throw it to the dogs.”
|But she responded by saying to him: “Certainly, Lord. Yet the young dogs also eat, under the table, from the crumbs of the children.”
|And he said to her, “Because of this saying, go; the demon has gone out of your daughter.”
|And when she had gone to her house, she found the girl lying on the bed; and the demon had gone away.
