21 And departing from there, Jesus withdrew into the areas of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And behold, a woman of Canaan, going out from those parts, cried out, saying to him: "Take pity on me, Lord, Son of David. My daughter is badly afflicted by a demon."
23 He did not say a word to her. And his disciples, drawing near, petitioned him, saying: "Dismiss her, for she is crying out after us."
24 And responding, he said, "I was not sent except to the sheep who have fallen away from the house of Israel."
25 But she approached and adored him, saying, "Lord, help me."
26 And responding, he said, "It is not good to take the bread of the children and cast it to the dogs."
27 But she said, "Yes, Lord, but the young dogs also eat from the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters."
28 Then Jesus, responding, said to her: "O woman, great is your faith. Let it be done for you just as you wish." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
