Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 7:27

_ _ But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled — “Is there hope for me here?” “Filled FIRST?” “Then my turn, it seems, is coming! — but then, ‘The CHILDREN first?’ Ah! when, on that rule, shall my turn ever come!” But ere she has time for these ponderings of His word, another word comes to supplement it.

_ _ for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs — Is this the death of her hopes? Nay, rather it is life from the dead. Out of the eater shall come forth meat (Judges 14:14). “At evening-time, it shall be light” (Zechariah 14:7). “Ah! I have it now. Had He kept silence, what could I have done but go unblest? but He hath spoken, and the victory is mine.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Mark 7:27

But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast [it] unto the (o) dogs.

(o) "Dog" here signifies a little dog, and he uses this term that he may seem to speak more reproachfully.
