Matthew 15:22–31

22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon.” 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying out after us.” 24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” 26 And he answered, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27 She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” 28 Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.1

Jesus Heals Many

29 Jesus went on from there and walked beside the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain and sat down there. 30 And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, 31 so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel.


[1] 15:28 Greek from that hour


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 15
22 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. 23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and cast it to dogs. 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. 28 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.

     29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.(KJV)

O Thou from Whom all Goodness Flows — Organ Audio

1. O Thou from whom all goodness flows, 
I lift my heart to Thee; 
In all my sorrows, conflicts, woes, 
Dear Lord, remember me. 

2. When on my poor and burdened heart 
My sins lie heavily, 
Thy pardon speak, new peace impart; 
Dear Lord, remember me. 

3. When trials sore obstruct my way 
And ills I cannot flee, 
Oh, let my strength be as my day; 
Dear Lord, remember me. 

4. If worn with pain, disease, or grief 
This feeble body be: 
Grant patience, rest, and kind relief; 
Dear Lord, remember me. 

5. When in the solemn hour of death 
I wait Thy just decree, 
Be this the prayer of my last breath: 
Dear Lord, remember me. 

6. And when before Thy throne I stand 
And lift my soul to Thee, 
Then with the saints at Thy right hand, 
Dear Lord, remember me.
