49 (A)While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the [a]Teacher.”

50 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, “Do not be afraid; (B)only believe, and she will be made well.” 51 When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go [b]in except [c]Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. 52 Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, (C)“Do not weep; she is not dead, (D)but sleeping.” 53 And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead.

And He commanded that she be given something to eat. 56 And her parents were astonished, but (F)He charged them to tell no one what had happened.
