Jesus Heals a Woman and Jairus’s Daughter
40Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him. 41And there came a man named Jairus, who was a ruler of the synagogue. And falling at Jesus’ feet, he implored him to come to his house,
42for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying.
As Jesus went, the people pressed around him.
43And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her living on physicians, she could not be healed by anyone.
44She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately her discharge of blood ceased.
45And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!”
46But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.”
47And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed.
48And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”
49While he was still speaking, someone from the ruler’s house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the Teacher any more.”
50But Jesus on hearing this answered him, “Do not fear; only believe, and she will be well.”
51And when he came to the house, he allowed no one to enter with him, except Peter and John and James, and the father and mother of the child.
52And all were weeping and mourning for her, but he said, “Do not weep, for she is not dead but sleeping.”
53And they laughed at him, knowing that she was dead.
54But taking her by the hand he called, saying, “Child, arise.”
55And her spirit returned, and she got up at once. And he directed that something should be given her to eat.
56And her parents were amazed, but he charged them to tell no one what had happened.
