31 Again He left the region of Tyre and came through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, within the region of Decapolis.32 And they *brought to Him one who was deaf and had difficulty speaking, and they *begged Him to lay His hand on him.33 And Jesustook him aside from the crowd, by himself, and put His fingers in his ears, and after spitting, He touched his tongue with the saliva;34 and looking up to heaven with a deep sigh, He *said to him, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be opened!”35 And his ears were opened, and the [a]impediment of his tongue was [b]removed, and he began speaking plainly.36 And He gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they continued to proclaim it.37 And they were utterly astonished, saying, “He has done all things well; He makes even those who are deaf hear, and those who are unable to talk, speak.”
Matthew 15:29-31New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 Departing from there, Jesus went along the Sea of Galilee, and after going up on the mountain, He was sitting there.30 And [a]large crowds came to Him bringing with them those who were limping, had impaired limbs, were blind, or were unable to speak, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them.31 So the crowd was astonished as they saw those who were unable to speak talking, those with impaired limbs [b]restored, those who were limping walking around, and those who were blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.
