43 A woman suffering from bleeding(A) for 12 years,(B) who had spent all she had on doctors[a] yet could not be healed by any, 44 approached from behind and touched the tassel of His robe.(C) Instantly her bleeding stopped.

45 “Who touched Me?” Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter[b] said, “Master,(D) the crowds are hemming You in and pressing against You.”[c]

46 “Someone did touch Me,” said Jesus. “I know that power has gone out from Me.”(E) 47 When the woman saw that she was discovered,[d] she came trembling and fell down before Him. In the presence of all the people, she declared the reason she had touched Him and how she was instantly cured. 48 “Daughter,” He said to her, “your faith has made you well.[e] Go in peace.”(F)
