406-407 : Jesus Restores Jairus' Daughter To Life
WHEN Jesus had returned again by boat to the other side of the lake,
many people gathered about him while he was by the water.
There came to him one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name.
When he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet, and pleaded greatly saying, "
My little daughter lies at the point of death. I pray you, come and lay your hands on her,
that she may be healed, and she shall live."
Jesus went with him, and many people followed and thronged about him.
On the way, there was a woman who had suffered a flow of blood twelve years,
and had been treated many times by physicians.
She had spent all that she had, and was no better but had grown worse.
She had heard of Jesus and came in the crowd behind him and touched his garment.
For she said, "If I may only touch his clothes, I shall be well."
Immediately, the bleeding ceased and she felt in her body that she was healed.
Then Jesus, feeling instantly that power had gone forth from him, turned around in the crowd,and said, "Who touched my clothes?"
His disciples said to him, "You see the multitude thronging about you, and do you say,
'Who touched me?"' He looked round about to see her who had done this thing.
Then the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said to her,"Daughter,your faith has made you whole.Go in peace,and be healed of your plague."
While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house some men who said to Jairus,"Your daughter is dead, why trouble the Master any further?"
But as soon as Jesus heard this, he said to the ruler of the synagogue,
"Be not afraid. Only believe." .
And he allowed no man to follow him, except Peter, and James, and John, the brother of James.
And he went to the house of the ruler of the synagogue.
He saw there many weeping and wailing greatly, and when he had gone in, he said to them,
"Why do you make this noise and weep? The girl is not dead, but sleeps."
They laughed at him. But when he had put them all out, he took the father
and the mother of the girl, and those that were with him,
and went in where the girl was lying. Then he took the girl by the hand and said to her,
"Talitha cumi," which means, being interpreted, "Little girl, I say to you, arise."
Immediately the girl arose, and walked-- for she was twelve year old-- and they were filled with great astonishment.
But he told them strictly that no man should know of it,
and commanded that she should be given something to eat,
