Matthew 9:18-26International Standard Version (ISV)
Jesus Heals a Woman and Resurrects a Girl
18 While Jesus[a] was telling them these things, an official came up and fell down before him. “My daughter has just died,” he said. “But come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.” 19 So Jesus got up and followed him, along with his disciples.
20 Just then a woman who had been suffering from chronic bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the tassel of his garment, 21 because she had been saying to herself, “If I just touch his robe, I will get well.”
22 When Jesus turned and saw her, he said, “Be courageous, daughter! Your faith has made you well.” And from that very hour the woman was well.
23 When Jesus came to the official’s house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, 24 he said, “Go away! The young lady hasn’t died, but is sleeping.” But they ridiculed him with laughter. 25 When the crowd had been driven outside, he went in, took her by the hand, and the young lady got up. 26 The news of this spread throughout that land.
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.”
49 While he was still speaking, someone came from the synagogue leader’s home[h] and told him,[i] “Your daughter is dead. Stop bothering the teacher anymore.”
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.
