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.”

49 While he was still speaking, someone from (M)the ruler's house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; (N)do not trouble (O)the Teacher any more.” 50 But Jesus on hearing this answered him, “Do not fear; only believe, and she will be well.” 51 And when he came to the house, he allowed no one to enter with him, except (P)Peter and (Q)John and James, and the father and mother of the child. 52 And all were weeping and (R)mourning for her, but he (S)said, “Do not weep, for (T)she is not dead but (U)sleeping.” 53 And they laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But (V)taking her by the hand he called, saying, “Child, (W)arise.” 55 And (X)her spirit returned, and she got up at once. And he directed that something should be given her to eat. 56 And her parents were amazed, but (Y)he charged them to tell no one what had happened.

My Soul Waits for the Lord

A Song of (A)Ascents.

130 Out of (B)the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
    O Lord, hear my voice!
(C)Let your ears be attentive
    to (D)the voice of my pleas for mercy!

If you, O Lord, should (E)mark iniquities,
    O Lord, who could (F)stand?
But with you there is (G)forgiveness,
    (H)that you may be feared.

I (I)wait for the Lord, (J)my soul waits,
    and (K)in his word I hope;
my soul (L)waits for the Lord
    more than (M)watchmen for (N)the morning,
    more than watchmen for the morning.

O Israel, (O)hope in the Lord!
    For (P)with the Lord there is steadfast love,
    and with him is plentiful redemption.
And he will (Q)redeem Israel
    from all his iniquities.

I Have Calmed and Quieted My Soul

A Song of (R)Ascents. Of David.

131 O Lord, my heart is not (S)lifted up;
    my eyes are not (T)raised too high;
I do not (U)occupy myself with things
    too great and (V)too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
    like a weaned (W)child with its mother;
    like a weaned child is my soul within me.

(X)O Israel, hope in the Lord
    from this time forth and forevermore.
