“But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 15:26 It is not meet to take the children's bread. She knew that, in comparing the Jews to the children of God's family, and the heathen to the dogs without, he simply used the customary language of a Jew. He would bring out fully the greatness of her faith. The gospel was offered first to the Jews and then to all.
