Syrophenician


"a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation (Mark 7:26), i.e., a" Gentile born in the Phoenician part of Syria. (See [615]PHENICIA.) "When our Lord retired into the borderland of Tyre and Sidon "(Matt. 15:21), a Syro-phoenician woman came to him, and" "earnestly besought him, in behalf of her daughter, who was" grievously afflicted with a demon. Her faith in him was severely "tested by his silence (Matt. 15:23), refusal (24), and seeming" reproach that it was not meet to cast the children's bread to "dogs (26). But it stood the test, and her petition was" "graciously granted, because of the greatness of her faith (28)."
