22A Canaanite woman from that area came, shouting out, “Lord, son of David! Please have mercy on me, because my daughter is suffering badly because she’s possessed by a demon!” 23But Jesus didn’t reply at all. His disciples came to him and told him, “Tell her to stop following us. All her shouting is really annoying!” 24“I was only sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel,” Jesus said to the woman. 25But the woman came and kneeled before him, and said, “Lord, please help me!” 26“It’s not right to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs#15:26. The word used for dogs indicates pet dogs, or puppies.,” Jesus told her. 27“Yes, Lord, but even dogs are allowed to eat crumbs that fall from their master’s table,” she replied. 28“You have great trust in me,” Jesus answered. “Your wish is granted!” And her daughter was healed immediately.
