Matthew 9:20-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)

20 Suddenly, a woman came from behind Jesus and touched the tassel of his prayer shawl for healing.[a] She had been suffering from continual bleeding for twelve years, but had faith that Jesus could heal her. 21 For she kept saying to herself, “If I could only touch his prayer shawl I would be healed.”

22 Just then Jesus turned around and looked at her and said, “My daughter, be encouraged. Your faith has healed you.”[b] And instantly she was healed!


  1. Matthew 9:20 Or “for salvation.” The blue tassel on the corner of the prayer shawl was said to symbolize all commandments and promises of God. See Num. 15:38-40. The Hebrew word for “fringe” or “border” (of a garment) can also mean “wing.” Some have interpreted Mal. 4:2 (“healing in his wings”) as a reference to the tassels of the prayer shawl.
  2. Matthew 9:22 Or “saved you.”
