Praise be to the Lord,(A)
    for he has heard my cry for mercy.(B)
The Lord is my strength(C) and my shield;
    my heart trusts(D) in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,(E)
    and with my song I praise him.(F)

The Lord is the strength(G) of his people,
    a fortress of salvation(H) for his anointed one.(I)
Save your people(J) and bless your inheritance;(K)
    be their shepherd(L) and carry them(M) forever.

24 So Jesus went with him.

A large crowd followed and pressed around him. 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding(A) for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes,(B) I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.(C)

35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader.(A) “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”

36 Overhearing[a] what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.(B) 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue leader,(C) Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. 39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.”(D) 40 But they laughed at him.

After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41 He took her by the hand(E) and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”).(F) 42 Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this,(G) and told them to give her something to eat.
