Context15They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the legion; and they became frightened. 16Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon-possessed man, and all about the swine. 17And they began to implore Him to leave their region. 18As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him. 19And He did not let him, but He said to him, Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you. 20And he went away and began to proclaim in Decapolis what great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed.
Miracles and Healing
21When Jesus had crossed over again in the boat to the other side, a large crowd gathered around Him; and so He stayed by the seashore. 22One of the synagogue officials named Jairus came up, and on seeing Him, fell at His feet 23and implored Him earnestly, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death; please come and lay Your hands on her, so that she will get well and live. 24And He went off with him; and a large crowd was following Him and pressing in on Him.
25A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years, 26and had endured much at the hands of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse 27after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak. 28For she thought, If I just touch His garments, I will get well. 29Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction. 30Immediately Jesus, perceiving in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said, Who touched My garments? 31And His disciples said to Him, You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, Who touched Me? 32And He looked around to see the woman who had done this. 33But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34And He said to her, Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.
35While He was still speaking, they came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, Your daughter has died; why trouble the Teacher anymore? 36But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, Do not be afraid any longer, only believe. 37And He allowed no one to accompany Him, except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38They came to the house of the synagogue official; and He saw a commotion, and people loudly weeping and wailing. 39And entering in, He said to them, Why make a commotion and weep? The child has not died, but is asleep. 40They began laughing at Him. But putting them all out, He took along the childs father and mother and His own companions, and entered the room where the child was. 41Taking the child by the hand, He said to her, Talitha kum! (which translated means, Little girl, I say to you, get up!). 42Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded. 43And He gave them strict orders that no one should know about this, and He said that something should be given her to eat.
