Jesus Heals a Deaf Man with a Speech Impediment:

Jesus had left the coasts of Tyre and Sidon; he came unto the Sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. It was there the crowd brought a deaf man who had a speech impediment and asked Jesus to put His hands upon him. It is by the healing power of Jesus that can heal us from both spiritual deafness and a speech impediment.
Mark 7:31-37

The people brought unto Jesus one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech Jesus to put his hand upon him.

Jesus took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers into his ears, and He spit, and touched his tongue; Then Jesus looking up to heaven, Jesus sighed, and said unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

Straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plain.

Jesus charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;
The multitude of people was beyond astonished, saying, “He hath done all things well: he makes both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.”
