Spurgeon's Verse Expositions of the Bible
Mark 7

 

 

Verses 24-30

Mark 7:24-29. And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid. For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: the woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs. And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

Christ capitulated at once, yielded to the strong arms of conquering prayer and faith, and so the pleading woman had her will.

Mark 7:30. And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

This exposition consisted of readings from Genesis 32:22-30; Exodus 32:7-14; and Mark 7:24-30.
