Matthew 15:21-39 New American Standard Bible

The Canaanite Woman's Faith

21  Jesus went away from there , and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon . 22  And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying , "Have mercy on me, Lord , Son of David ; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed ." 23  But He did not answer her a word . And His disciples came and implored Him, saying , "Send her away , because she keeps shouting at us." 24  But He answered and said , "I was sent only e e to the lost sheep of the house of Israel ." 25  But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying , "Lord , help me!" 26  And He answered and said , "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs ." 27  But she said , "Yes , Lord ; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table ." 28  Then Jesus said to her, "O woman , your faith is great ; it shall be done for you as you wish ." And her daughter was healed at once e .

Jesus Heals Many People

29  Departing from there , Jesus went along by the Sea of Galilee , and having gone up on the mountain , He was sitting there . 30  And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame , crippled , blind , mute , and many others , and they laid them down at His feet ; and He healed them. 31  So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking , the crippled restored , and the lame walking , and the blind seeing ; and they glorified the God of Israel .

The Feeding of the Four Thousand

32  And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said , " I feel compassion for the people , because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing e to eat ; and I do not want to send them away hungry , for they might faint on the way ." 33  The disciples said to Him, "Where would we get so many loaves in this desolate place to satisfy such a large crowd ?" 34  And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have ?" And they said , "Seven , and a few small fish ." 35  And He directed the people to sit down on the ground ; 36  and He took the seven loaves and the fish ; and giving thanks , He broke them and started giving them to the disciples , and the disciples gave them to the people . 37  And they all ate and were satisfied , and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces , seven large baskets full . 38  And those who ate were four thousand men , besides women and children . 39  And sending away the crowds , Jesus got into the boat and came to the region of Magadan .
