Jesus Heals a Woman and Jairus's Daughter

40 Now when Jesus returned, the crowd (A)welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him. 41 (B)And there came a man named Jairus, who was (C)a ruler of the synagogue. And falling at Jesus' feet, he implored him to come to his house, 42 for he had (D)an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying.

As Jesus went, the people (E)pressed around him. 43 And there was a woman (F)who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her (G)living on physicians,[a] she could not be healed by anyone. 44 She came up behind him and touched (H)the fringe of his garment, and (I)immediately her discharge of blood ceased. 45 And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter[b] said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I perceive that (J)power has gone out from me.” 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. 48 And he said to her, “Daughter, (K)your faith has made you well; (L)go in peace.”
