23 When Jesus came to the leader’s house, He saw the flute players and a crowd lamenting loudly.(A) 24 “Leave,” He said, “because the girl isn’t dead, but sleeping.”(B) 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.(C) 26 And this news spread throughout that whole area.(D)

35 While He was still speaking, people came from the synagogue leader’s house and said, “Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher(A) anymore?”

36 But when Jesus overheard what was said, He told the synagogue leader, “Don’t be afraid.(B) Only believe.” 37 He did not let anyone accompany Him except Peter,(C) James,(D) and John,(E) James’s brother. 38 They came to the leader’s house, and He saw a commotion—people weeping and wailing loudly. 39 He went in and said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping?(F) The child(G) is not dead but asleep.”(H)

40 They started laughing at Him, but He put them all outside. He took the child’s father,(I) mother, and those who were with Him, and entered the place where the child was. 41 Then He took the child(J) by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!”[a] (which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”(K)). 42 Immediately the girl got up(L) and began to walk.(M) (She was 12 years old.) At this they were utterly astounded.(N) 43 Then He gave them strict orders that no one should know about this(O) and said that she should be given something to eat.
