Jesus Raises a Widow's Son

11 Soon afterward[a] he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 12 As he drew near to the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, (A)the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and a considerable crowd from the town was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, (B)he had compassion on her and (C)said to her, “Do not weep.” 14 Then he came up and touched (D)the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, (E)arise.” 15 And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus[b] (F)gave him to his mother. 16 Fear seized them all, and (G)they glorified God, saying, (H)“A great prophet has arisen among us!” and (I)“God has visited his people!” 17 And this report about him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.
