Matthew 15:34 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, etc. - Human foresight, even in the followers of Christ, is very short.

This world is a desert, where nothing can be found to satisfy the soul of man, but the salvation which Christ has procured.

I HAVE frequently spoken to you concerning the faith of this Canaanitish woman, of the way in which Christ tried it, and of the manner in which, at length, he honoured it, and granted all that the suppliant sought. The story is so full of meaning, that one might turn it this way, and that way, and the other way, and always see
