Geneva Notes/ Commentary on Matthew 15: 21-28

From the Geneva Notes

Mt 15:21
15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the {e} coasts
of Tyre and Sidon.

(e) Coasts which were next to Tyre and Sidon, that is in
that region where Palestine faces toward Venice, and
the sea of Syria.

Mt 15:22
15:22 And, behold, a woman of {f} 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.

(f) Of the people of the Canaanites, who dwelt in
Phoenicia.

Mt 15:23
15:23 {5} But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came
and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth
after us.

(5) In that Christ sometimes shuts his ears, as it were, to the
prayers of his saints, he does it for his glory, and our
profit.

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

(g) Of the people of Israel, who were divided into tribes,
but all those tribes came from one family.
