22 One of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus,(A) came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet(B) 23 and begged him earnestly, “My little daughter is dying. Come and lay your hands on(C) her so that she can get well[a](D) and live.” 24 So Jesus went with him, and a large crowd was following and pressing against him.

25 Now a woman suffering from bleeding(E) for twelve years 26 had endured(F) much under many doctors.(G) She had spent everything she had and was not helped at all. On the contrary, she became worse. 27 Having heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched(H) his clothing.(I) 28 For she said, “If I just touch his clothes, I’ll be made well.”(J) 29 Instantly her flow of blood ceased, and she sensed in her body that she was healed(K) of her affliction.

30 At once Jesus realized in himself that power(L) had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd(M) and said, “Who touched my clothes?”(N)

31 His disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing against you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’

32 But he was looking around to see who had done this. 33 The woman, with fear and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down(O) before him, and told him the whole truth.(P) 34 “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith(Q) has saved you.(R) Go in peace and be healed(S) from your affliction.”(T)

35 While he was still speaking, people came from the synagogue leader’s house and said, “Your daughter is dead. Why bother the teacher(U) anymore?”

36 When Jesus overheard[b] what was said, he told the synagogue leader, “Don’t be afraid.(V) Only believe.” 37 He did not let anyone accompany him except Peter,(W) James,(X) and John,(Y) James’s brother. 38 They came to the leader’s house, and he saw a commotion—people weeping and wailing loudly. 39 He went in and said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping?(Z) The child(AA) is not dead but asleep.”(AB) 40 They laughed at him, but he put them all outside. He took the child’s father,(AC) mother, and those who were with him, and entered the place where the child was. 41 Then he took the child(AD) by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum”[c] (which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, get up”(AE)). 42 Immediately the girl got up(AF) and began to walk.(AG) (She was twelve years old.) At this they were utterly astounded.(AH) 43 Then he gave them strict orders that no one should know about this(AI) and told them to give her something to eat.

41 Just then, a man named Jairus came. He was a leader of the synagogue.(A) He fell down at Jesus’s feet and pleaded with him to come to his house, 42 because he had an only daughter(B) about twelve years old, and she was dying.

While he was going, the crowds were nearly crushing him.(C) 43 A woman suffering from bleeding(D) for twelve years,(E) who had spent all she had on doctors[a] and yet could not be healed by any, 44 approached from behind and touched the end of his robe.(F) Instantly her bleeding stopped.

45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter[b] said, “Master,(G) 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.”(H) 47 When the woman saw that she was discovered, 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 healed. 48 “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has saved you.[d] Go in peace.”(I)

49 While he was still speaking,(J) someone came from the synagogue leader’s house and said, “Your daughter is dead. Don’t bother(K) the teacher(L) anymore.”

50 When Jesus heard it, he answered him, “Don’t be afraid. Only believe, and she will be saved.”[e] 51 After he came to the house, he let no one enter with him except Peter, John, James,(M) and the child’s father and mother. 52 Everyone was crying(N) and mourning for her.(O) But he said, “Stop crying, because she is not dead but asleep.”(P)

53 They laughed at him, because they knew she was dead. 54 So he[f] took her by the hand(Q) and called out, “Child, get up!”(R) 55 Her spirit returned,(S) and she got up at once. Then he gave orders that she be given something to eat. 56 Her parents were astounded, but he instructed them to tell no one what had happened.(T)
