Bible Quote 15:21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession."
15:23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, "Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us."
15:24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel."
15:25 The woman came and knelt before him. "Lord, help me!" she said.

15:26 He replied, "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs."
15:27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table."
15:28 Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
