Jesus Heals a Woman and Jairus’s Daughter

And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, [and] welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him beside the sea. Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. Seeing him, he fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” And he went with him.

And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her living on physicians, she could not be healed by anyone. She had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.

And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?”

When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you! You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’”

But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.”

And he looked around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth. She declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.” And instantly the woman was made well.

While he was still speaking, someone from the ruler’s house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the Teacher any more.”

But Jesus on hearing this answered him, “Do not fear; only believe, and she will be well.”

And when he came to the house, he allowed no one to enter with him, except Peter and John and James, and the father and mother of the child. And when Jesus came to the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? Do not weep. Go away, for the girl is not dead but sleeping.”

And they laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was. Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” And her spirit returned, and she got up at once and began walking, and they were immediately overcome with amazement. And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat. And the report of this went through all that district.
