Matthew 15:35 Parallel
Commentary
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.

"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."--Matthew 15:28. 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.
