And from thence he [there Jesus WU] 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 [escape notice]. MK 7:24 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean [evil WU] spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: MK 7:25 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought [begged] him that he would cast forth the devil [demon] out of her daughter. MK 7:26 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet [appropriate] to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. MK 7:27 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet [even] the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs. MK 7:28 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. MK 7:29 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed. MK 7:30

And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he [Jesus WU] came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. MK 7:31 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech [begged] him to put his hand upon him. MK 7:32 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; MK 7:33 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. MK 7:34 And straightway [immediately] his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain [clearly]. MK 7:35 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published [proclaimed] it; MK 7:36 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb [mute] to speak. MK 7:37

In those days the multitude being very great [large WU], and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them, MK 8:1 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: MK 8:2 And if I send them away fasting [hungry WU] to their own houses, they will faint by [on] the way: for divers [some] of them came from far. MK 8:3 LOVE NEIGHBOR Mercy And his disciples answered him, From whence [where] can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? MK 8:4 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. MK 8:5 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake [broke them], and gave to his disciples to set before [serve] them; and they did set them before the people. MK 8:6 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed [them], and commanded to set them also before them. MK 8:7 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat [pieces] that was left seven baskets. MK 8:8 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away. MK 8:9

And straightway [immediately] he entered into a ship [boat] with his disciples, and came into the parts [region] of Dalmanutha. MK 8:10 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of [from] him a sign from heaven, tempting [testing] him. MK 8:11 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. MK 8:12

And he left them, and entering into the ship [boat] again departed to the other side. MK 8:13 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. MK 8:14 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven [yeast] of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. MK 8:15 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. MK 8:16 And when Jesus knew it [became aware of their discussion WU], he saith unto them, Why reason ye, [that it's] because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet [still] hardened? MK 8:17 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? MK 8:18 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. MK 8:19 And when [I broke] the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. MK 8:20 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand? MK 8:21
