Even the Dogs



And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. (Matthew 15:22)

But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. (Matthew 15:23)

But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matthew 15:24)

Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. (Matthew 15:25)

But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. (Matthew 15:26)

And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. (Matthew 15:27)

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. (Matthew 15:28)
