Certain Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, “Go away from here; for Herod wishes to kill you.” He said to them, “Go and tell that fox, ‘See, I cast out evil spirits and cure the sick to-day and to-morrow, but on the third day I must go on my way; for it cannot be that a prophet will be put to death anywhere except in Jerusalem.'”

Jesus left Capernaum and went into the land of Tyre and Sidon. Going into a house, he wished that no one should know that he was there, but he could not escape notice. Soon a woman whose little daughter had an evil spirit heard of him and came and knelt at his feet. Now the woman was a heathen of the Phoenician race. She begged him to drive the evil spirit out of her daughter, but he said to her, “Let the children of Israel first be fed, for it is not fair to take their bread and throw it to the dogs!” She answered him, “True, sir, yet the little dogs under the table do eat the children’s crumbs.” He said to her, “Because of this answer go to your home; the evil spirit has gone out of your daughter.” On returning home she found the child lying on the bed and the evil spirit gone from her.

Jesus again left the land of Tyre and passed through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, crossing the land of Decapolis. The people brought to him a deaf man, who also stammered; and they begged Jesus to lay his hand on him.

Jesus took the man away from the crowd, put his fingers into the man’s ears, touched his tongue with saliva, and looking up to heaven, sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha” (which means “Open”). And at once, the man could hear and could talk without stammering.

Then Jesus told them to tell no one, but in spite of what he said the people kept telling about it, saying: “How well he has done everything! He even makes the deaf hear, and the dumb speak.”
