19. Healing a Woman with a Flow of Blood
and Raising Up a Dead Girl
40 Now as Jesus was 1areturning, the crowd welcomed Him, for they were all waiting for Him.
41 And behold, a 1man came whose name was Jairus, and this man was a aruler of the synagogue. And he fell at Jesus' feet and entreated Him to enter into his house,
42 Because he had an aonly daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. And as He went, the crowds 1pressed against Him.
43 And a woman who had a aflow of blood for twelve years and who 1had spent all her livelihood on physicians and yet could not be healed by anyone,
44 Approached Him from behind and touched the afringe of His garment, and instantly her flow of blood stopped.
45 And Jesus said, Who is the one who touched Me? And when all denied it, 1Peter said, Master, the crowds are pressing and crushing You.
46 But Jesus said, Someone touched Me, for I perceived that apower had gone out from Me.
47 And when the woman saw that she had not escaped notice, she came trembling and fell down before Him and declared before all the people the reason why she had touched Him and how she had been instantly healed.
48 And He said to her, Daughter, your afaith has 1healed you. Go 2in peace.
49 While He was still speaking, someone came from the house of the ruler of the synagogue, saying, Your daughter has died; do anot trouble the bTeacher any longer.
50 But Jesus, hearing it, answered him, Do not be afraid -- only believe, and she will be healed.
51 And He came to the house and did not allow anyone to enter with Him, except aPeter and 1John and James and the father of the child and the mother.
52 And all were weeping and mourning for her; but He said, Do anot weep, for she has not died but is bsleeping.
53 And they laughed scornfully at Him, knowing that she had died.
54 But He atook hold of her hand and called out, saying, Child, barise!
55 And her aspirit returned and she rose up instantly; and He directed that something be given to her to eat.
56 And her parents were amazed, but He charged them to tell ano one what had happened.
