Matthew 15:22 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
A woman of Canaan - Matthew gives her this name because of the people from whom she sprung - the descendants of Canaan, Judges 1:31, Judges 1:32; but Mark calls her a Syrophenician, because of the country where she dwelt. The Canaanites and Phoenicians have been often confounded. This is frequently the case in the Septuagint. Compare Genesis 46:10, with Exodus 6:15, where the same person is called a Phoenician in the one place, and a Canaanite in the other. See also the same version in Exodus 16:35; Joshua 5:12.
The state of this woman is a proper emblem of the state of a sinner, deeply conscious of the misery of his soul.

1. It is short;
3. full of faith;
8. relying only on the mercy of God;
Can one who sees himself a slave of the devil, beg with too much earnestness to be delivered from his thraldom?

News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them.
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!"
Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, "Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us."
"Lord, have mercy on my son," he said. "He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water.
