Jesus told her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace!"
49While Jesus was still speaking to her, someone came from the synagogue leader's home. He said, "Your daughter is dead. Don't bother the teacher anymore." 50When Jesus heard this, he told the synagogue leader, "Don't be afraid! Just believe, and she will get well." 51Jesus went into the house. He allowed no one to go with him except Peter, John, James, and the child's parents. 52Everyone was crying and showing how sad they were. Jesus said, "Don't cry! She's not dead. She's just sleeping." 53They laughed at him because they knew she was dead. 54But Jesus took her hand and called out, "Child, get up!" 55She came back to life and got up at once. He ordered her parents to give her something to eat. 56They were amazed. Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
