Gentiles and Jews


Go Not Into the Way of the Gentiles

Matt 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into [any] city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Matt 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.


It Is Not Meet to Take the Childrens Bread

Mark 7:25 For a [certain] woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:

Mark 7:26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

Mark 7:27 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.

Mark 7:28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.

Mark 7:29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

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


Matt 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.

Matt 15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

Matt 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Matt 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

Matt 15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and cast [it] to dogs.

Matt 15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

Matt 15:28 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.
