A Girl Restored and a Woman Healed

18 As He was telling them these things,(A) suddenly one of the leaders[a] came and knelt down before Him, saying, “My daughter is near death,[b] but come and lay Your hand on her, and she will live.”(B) 19 So Jesus and His disciples got up and followed(C) him.

20 Just then, a woman who had suffered from bleeding for 12 years approached from behind and touched the tassel on His robe,(D) 21 for she said to herself, “If I can just touch His robe, I’ll be made well!”[c](E)

22 But Jesus turned and saw her. “Have courage, daughter,” He said. “Your faith has made you well.”[d](F) And the woman was made well from that moment.[e]

23 When Jesus came to the leader’s house, He saw the flute players and a crowd lamenting loudly.(G) 24 “Leave,” He said, “because the girl isn’t dead, but sleeping.”(H) And they started laughing at Him. 25 But when the crowd had been put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl got up.(I) 26 And this news spread throughout that whole area.(J)

A Girl Restored and a Woman Healed

40 When Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed Him,(A) for they were all expecting Him.(B) 41 Just then, a man named Jairus came. He was a leader of the synagogue.(C) He fell down at Jesus’ feet and pleaded with Him to come to his house, 42 because he had an only daughter(D) about 12 years old, and she was at death’s door.[a]

While He was going, the crowds were nearly crushing Him.(E) 43 A woman suffering from bleeding(F) for 12 years,(G) who had spent all she had on doctors[b] yet could not be healed by any, 44 approached from behind and touched the tassel of His robe.(H) Instantly her bleeding stopped.

45 “Who touched Me?” Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter[c] said, “Master,(I) the crowds are hemming You in and pressing against You.”[d]

46 “Someone did touch Me,” said Jesus. “I know that power has gone out from Me.”(J) 47 When the woman saw that she was discovered,[e] she came trembling and fell down before Him. In the presence of all the people, she declared the reason she had touched Him and how she was instantly cured. 48 “Daughter,” He said to her, “your faith has made you well.[f] Go in peace.”(K)

49 While He was still speaking,(L) someone came from the synagogue leader’s house, saying, “Your daughter is dead. Don’t bother(M) the Teacher(N) anymore.”

50 When Jesus heard it, He answered him, “Don’t be afraid. Only believe, and she will be made well.” 51 After He came to the house, He let no one enter with Him except Peter, John, James,(O) and the child’s father and mother. 52 Everyone was crying(P) and mourning for her.(Q) But He said, “Stop crying, for she is not dead but asleep.”(R)

53 They started laughing at Him, because they knew she was dead. 54 So He[g] took her by the hand(S) and called out, “Child, get up!”(T) 55 Her spirit returned,(U) and she got up at once. Then He gave orders that she be given something to eat. 56 Her parents were astounded, but He instructed them to tell no one what had happened.(V)
