They Glorified the God of Israel

Matthew 15:29-31 (ESV)
Jesus went on from there and walked beside the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain and sat down there. [30] And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, [31] so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel.
And they glorified the God of Israel. The people weren’t stupid. They knew who was at work in Jesus Christ. As Nicodemus said, no one can do these signs if he is not from God. They brought to him the lame, the crippled, and the mute, and he healed them. Undoubtedly they glorified Jesus himself, in doing so they glorified the God of Israel, and they knew that.
