While Jesus is speaking these things to them, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus. And seeing Jesus, he fell at His feet and worshipped Him and besought Him much to come into his house, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death; I pray that Thou wouldst come and lay Thy hands upon her, that she may be saved and live."
And Jesus arose and followed him, also His disciples. And a great multitude followed Him, and as He went, they thronged Him.
And behold, a woman who had a flow of blood twelve years, and had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had upon them, and could be cured by no one and was in no respect benefited, but rather grew worse, having heard the things concerning Jesus, came in the crowd behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment: for she said within herself, "If I only touch His garment, I shall be healed."
And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she perceived in her body that she was healed of her plague.
And immediately Jesus, knowing in Himself that power from Him had gone forth, turned about in the crowd and said, "Who touched My garments? Who is it that touched Me?" Then when all denied it, Peter and the other disciples said to Him, "Master, the multitudes press upon Thee and crush Thee. Thou seest the crowd pressing on Thee, and sayest Thou, 'Who touched Me?'"
But Jesus said, "Some one touched Me, for I perceived that power has gone out from Me." And He looked around to see her who had done this. Then the woman, seeing that she was discovered, came fearing and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, and fell down before Him and told Him all the truth, and declared before all the people for what cause she touched Him and how she was healed instantly. Then He said to her, "Daughter, be of good cheer, thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace and be well of thy plague." And the woman was saved from that hour.
While He is yet speaking, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying, "Thy daughter is dead; why still trouble the Teacher?" But Jesus, disregarding the word thus spoken, saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, "Fear not; only believe, and she shall be saved."
And entering into the ruler's house, He did not let any one enter in with Him except Peter and James and John, the brother of James, and the father and mother of the child. And they were all weeping and bewailing her. And seeing the fluteplayers and the professional mourners making a tumult, He saith to them, "Why make ye a tumult and weep? Give place and weep not; for the child is not dead, but sleepeth."
And they laughed at Him in scorn, knowing that she was dead. But He, having put them all out, taketh with Him the father and the mother of the child and those who were with Him, and goeth in where the child was. And taking the hand of the child, He called, saying to her, "Talitha kumi"; which is, being translated, "Damsel, I say to thee, arise." And her spirit returned, and she arose immediately and walked; for she was twelve years old. And He commanded that something should be given her to eat. And her parents were amazed immediately with a great amaze- ment. And He charged them much to tell no one what had been done. And yet the report of this went forth into all the land.
