Mark 5:21-43 International Standard Version (ISV)
Jesus Heals a Woman and Resurrects a Girl
21 When Jesus again had crossed to the other side in a boat,[a] a large crowd gathered around him by the seashore. 22 Then a synagogue leader named Jairus arrived. When he saw Jesus,[b] he fell at his feet 23 and begged him urgently, saying, “My little daughter is dying. Come and lay your hands on her so that she may get well and live.” 24 So Jesus[c] went with him. A huge crowd kept following him and jostling him.
25 Now there was a woman who had been suffering from chronic bleeding for twelve years. 26 Although she had endured a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all of her money, she had not been helped at all, but rather grew worse. 27 Since she had heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his robe, 28 because she had been saying, “If I can just touch his robe, I will get well.” 29 Her bleeding stopped at once, and she felt in her body that she was healed from her illness.
30 Immediately Jesus became aware that power had gone out of him. So he turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
31 His disciples asked him, “You see the crowd jostling you, and yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 But he kept looking around to look at the woman who had done this. 33 So the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came forward fearfully, fell down trembling in front of him, and told him the whole truth.
34 He told her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed from your illness.”
36 But when Jesus heard[f] what they said, he told the synagogue leader, “Stop being afraid! Just keep on believing.” 37 Jesus[g] allowed no one to go further with him except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus[h] saw mass confusion. People[i] were crying and sobbing loudly. 39 He entered the house[j] and asked them, “Why all this confusion and crying? The child isn’t dead. She’s sleeping.” 40 They laughed and laughed at him. But when he had driven all of them outside, he took the child’s father and mother, along with the men who were with him, and went into the room[k] where the child was.
41 He took her by the hand and told her, “Talitha koum,”[l] which means, “Young lady, I tell you, get up!” 42 The young lady got up at once and started to walk. She was twelve years old. Instantly they were overcome with astonishment. 43 But Jesus[m] strictly ordered them not to let anyone know about this. He also told them to give her something to eat.
Luke 8:40-56 International Standard Version (ISV)
Jesus Heals a Woman and Resurrects a Girl
40 When Jesus came back, the crowd welcomed him, because everyone was expecting him. 41 Just then a synagogue leader by the name of Jairus arrived. He fell at Jesus’ feet and kept begging him to come to his home, 42 because his only living[a] daughter, who was about twelve years old, was dying. While Jesus[b] was on his way, the crowds continued to press in on him.
43 A woman was there[c] who had been suffering from chronic bleeding for twelve years. Although she had spent all she had on doctors,[d] no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind Jesus[e] and touched the tassel of his garment, and her bleeding stopped at once.
45 Jesus asked, “Who touched me?”
While everyone was denying it, Peter and those who were with him[f] said, “Master, the crowds are surrounding you and pressing in on you.”
46 Still Jesus said, “Somebody touched me, because I know that power has gone out of me.”
47 When the woman saw that she couldn’t hide, she came forward trembling. Bowing down in front of him, she explained in the presence of all the people why she had touched Jesus[g] and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he told her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
50 But when Jesus heard this, he told the synagogue leader,[j] “Stop being afraid! Just believe, and she will get well.”
51 When he arrived at the man’s[k] house, he allowed no one to go in with him except Peter, John, James, and the young girl’s father and mother. 52 Now everyone was crying and wailing for her. But Jesus[l] said, “Stop crying! She’s not dead. She’s sleeping.” 53 They laughed and laughed at him, because they knew she was dead. 54 But he took her hand and called out, “Young lady, get up!” 55 So her spirit returned, and she got up at once. Then Jesus[m] directed that she be given something to eat. 56 Her parents were amazed, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
