11 And 1soon afterward He went into a city called Nain, and His disciples went with Him, as well as a large crowd.
12 And as He came near the gate of the city, behold, one who had died was being carried out, an aonly son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a considerable crowd from the city was with her.
13 And when the Lord saw her, He was 1moved with acompassion for her and said to her, Do bnot weep.
14 And He came near and touched the bier, and those carrying it stood still. And He said, Young man, to you I say, aArise.
15 And the adead man sat up and began to speak. And He bgave him to his mother.
16 And afear took hold of all, and they bglorified God, saying, A great cprophet has been raised up among us, and, God has dvisited His people!
17 And this report concerning Him went out in the whole of 1Judea and in all the surrounding region.
