Matt 15  Mark 7    Luke  
21 And Jesus  24  And from there he arose  
  went away from there   and went away  
  and withdrew      
  to the district of Tyre and Sidon.   to the region of Tyre and Sidon.  
      And he entered a house,  
      and would not have any one know it;  
      to Bethsaida,  
      yet he could not be hid.  
22 And behold, 25 But immediately  
  a Canaanite woman   a woman,  
  from that region      
  came out      
  and cried,      
  "Have mercy on me,      
  O Lord, Son of David;      
  my daughter is severely possessed   whose little daughter was possessed  
  by a demon."   by an unclean spirit,  
      heard of him,  
23 But he did not answer her a word.      
  And his disciples came      
  and begged him,      
  "Send her away,      
  for she is crying after us."      
24 He answered,      
  "I was sent only to the lost sheep      
  of the house of Israel."      
25 But she came   and came  
  and knelt before him,   and fell down at his feet.  
    26 Now the woman was a Greek,  
      a Syrophoenician by birth.  
  saying, "Lord, help me."   And she begged him  
      to cast the demon  
      out of her daughter.  
26 And he answered, 27 And he said to her,  
      "Let the children first be fed,  
  "It is not fair   for it is not right  
  to take the children's bread   to take the children's bread  
  and throw it to the dogs."   and throw it to the dogs."  
27 She said, 28 But she answered him,  
  "Yes, Lord;   "Yes, Lord;  
  yet even the dogs   yet even the dogs  
      under the table*  
  eat the crumbs   eat the children's crumbs."  
  that fall      
  from their masters' table."*      
28 Then Jesus answered her, 29 And he said to her,  
  "O woman,      
  great is your faith!      
      "For this saying  
      you may go your way;  
  Be it done for you as you desire."   the demon has left your daughter."  
  And 30 And she went home,  
  her daughter   and found the child  
      lying in bed,  
  was healed instantly.   and the demon gone.
