Недеља 17. по Духовима

И дозвавши народ с ученицима својим рече им: Ко хоће за мном да иде нека се одрекне себе и узме крст свој, и за мном иде. Јер ко хоће душу своју да сачува, изгубиће је; а ко изгуби душу своју мене ради и јеванђеља онај ће је сачувати. Јер каква је корист човеку ако задобије сав свет, а души својој науди? Или какав ће откуп дати човек за душу своју? Јер ко се постиди мене и мојих речи у роду овом прељуботворном и грешном, и Син ће се човечји постидети њега кад дође у слави Оца свог с анђелима светима.
И рече им: Заиста вам кажем: имају неки међу овима што стоје овде који неће окусити смрт док не виде царство Божје да дође у сили.
И изишавши оданде Исус отиде у крајеве тирске и сидонске. И гле, жена Хананејка изађе из оних крајева, и повика к Њему говорећи: Помилуј ме Господе сине Давидов! Моју кћер врло мучи ђаво. А Он јој не одговори ни речи. И приступивши ученици Његови мољаху Га говорећи: Отпусти је, како виче за нама. А Он одговарајући рече: Ја сам послан само к изгубљеним овцама дома Израиљевог. А она приступивши поклони Му се говорећи: Господе помози ми! А Он одговарајући рече: Није добро узети од деце хлеб и бацити псима. А она рече: Да, Господе, али и пси једу од мрва што падају с трпезе њихових господара. Тада одговори Исус, и рече јој: О жено! Велика је вера твоја; нека ти буде како хоћеш. И оздрави кћи њена од оног часа.
17th Sunday after Pentecost

When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”
And He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power.”
Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.” But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.” But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
