7:32 They brought to him a deaf man who had difficulty speaking, and they asked him to place his hands on him.
7:33 After Jesus took him aside privately, away from the crowd, he put his fingers in the man’s ears, and after spitting, he touched his tongue.
7:34 Then he looked up to heaven and said with a sigh, “Ephphatha” (that is, “Be opened”).
7:35 And immediately the man’s ears were opened, his tongue loosened, and he spoke plainly.
7:36 Jesus ordered them not to tell anything. But as much as he ordered them not to do this, they proclaimed it all the more.
7:37 People were completely astounded and said, “He has done everything well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”
