THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 15 - Verse 23

Verse 23. But he answered her not a word. This was done to test her faith, and that there might be exhibited to the apostles an example of the effect of persevering supplication. The result shows that it was not unwillingness to aid her, or neglect of her. It was proper that the strength of her faith should be fully tried.

{p} "not a word" Ps 28:1; La 3:8
