Jesus Gives Life to a Dead Girl and Heals a Sick Woman

40When Jesus went back to Galilee, the people welcomed him. Everyone was waiting
for him. 41A man named Jairus came to Jesus. Jairus was a leader of the synagogue.*
Jairus bowed down at the feet of Jesus and begged him to come to his house. 42Jairus
had only one daughter. She was twelve years old, and she was dying. While Jesus
was going [to Jairus' house], the people came all around him. 43A woman was there
who had been bleeding for twelve years. She had spent all her money on doctors,
but no doctor was able to heal her. 44The woman came behind Jesus and touched the
bottom of his coat. At that moment, her bleeding stopped. 45Then Jesus said, "Who
touched me?" All the people said they had not touched Jesus. Peter said, "Master,
the people are all around you and are pushing against you." 46But Jesus said, "Someone
touched me! I felt power go out from me." 47When the woman saw that she could not
hide, she came forward, shaking. She bowed down before Jesus. While all the people
listened, she told why she touched Jesus. Then she said that she was healed immediately
when she touched him. 48Jesus said to her, "My daughter, you are made well because
you believed. Go in peace." 49While Jesus was still speaking, a person came from
the house of the synagogue* leader (Jairus) and said, "Your daughter has died!
Don't bother the teacher (Jesus) now." 50Jesus heard this. He said to Jairus, "Don't
be afraid! Just believe and your daughter will be well." 51Jesus went to the house.
Jesus let only Peter, John, James, and the girl's father and mother go inside with
him. Jesus did not let any other person go inside. 52All the people were crying
and feeling sad because the girl was dead. But Jesus said, "Don't cry. She is not
dead; she is only sleeping." 53The people laughed at Jesus, because they knew that
the girl was dead. 54But Jesus held her hand and called to her, "Little girl, stand
up!" 55Her spirit came back into her and she stood up immediately. Jesus said, "Give
her something to eat." 56The girl's parents were amazed. Jesus told them not to
tell any person about what happened.
