Matthew 15:26-28 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

26 He said in reply, “It is not right to take the food of the children[a] and throw it to the dogs.” 27 She said, “Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters.” 28 Then Jesus said to her in reply, “O woman, great is your faith![b] Let it be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed from that hour.

Footnotes:

  1. 15:26 The children: the people of Israel. Dogs: see note on Mt 7:6.
  2. 15:28 As in the case of the cure of the centurion’s servant (Mt 8:10), Matthew ascribes Jesus’ granting the request to the woman’s great faith, a point not made equally explicit in the Marcan parallel (Mk 7:24–30).
