22A Canaanite woman from those territories came out and shouted, "Show me mercy, Son of David. My daughter is suffering terribly from demon possession." 23But he didn’t respond to her at all. His disciples came and urged him, "Send her away; she keeps shouting out after us." 24Jesus replied, "I’ve been sent only to the lost sheep, the people of Israel." 25But she knelt before him and said, "Lord, help me." 26He replied, "It is not good to take the children’s bread and toss it to dogs." 27She said, "Yes, Lord. But even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall off their masters’ table." 28Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith. It will be just as you wish." And right then her daughter was healed.
