But after hearing about Him, a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately came and fell at His feet.
Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician descent. And she repeatedly
asked Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
And He was saying to her, 'Let the children be satisfied first, for it is notgood to take the children’s bread and throw it to thedogs.'
But she answered and *said to Him, 'Yes, Lord, but
even the dogs under the table feed on the children’s crumbs.'
And He said to her, 'Because of thisanswer, go; the demon has gone out of your daughter.'
And after going back to her home, she found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
