Then he re­turned from the re­gion of Tyre, and went through Si­don to the Sea of Galilee, through the re­gion of the De­capo­lis. And they brought to him a man who was deaf and had an im­ped­i­ment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand upon him. And tak­ing him aside from the mul­ti­tude pri­vately, he put his fin­gers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue; and look­ing up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, “Eph­phatha,” that is, “Be opened.” And his ears were opened, his tongue was re­leased, and he spoke plainly. And he charged them to tell no one; but the more he charged them, the more zeal­ously they pro­claimed it. And they were as­ton­ished be­yond mea­sure, say­ing, “He has done all things well; he even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Mark 7:31-37
