Mark 5.21-43

21When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowgathered around him; and he was by the lake. 22Then one of the leaders of thsynagogue named Jairus came and, when he saw him, 23fell at his feet and beggehim repeatedly, My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay youhands on her, so that she may be made well, and live. 24So he went with hiAnd a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. 25Now there was woman who had been suffering from haemorrhages for twelve years. 26She haendured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she wano better, but rather grew worse. 27She had heard about Jesus, and came ubehind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28for she said, If I but touchis clothes, I will be made well. 29Immediately her haemorrhage stopped; anshe felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30Immediately awarthat power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and saidWho touched my clothes? 31And his disciples said to him, You see the crowpressing in on you; how can you say, Who touched me? 32He looked all arounto see who had done it. 33But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, camin fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34Hsaid to her, Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and bhealed of your disease.35While he was still speaking, some people came from the leaders house tsay, Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further? 36Buoverhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of the synagogue, Do nofear, only believe. 37He allowed no one to follow him except Peter, James, anJohn, the brother of James. 38When they came to the house of the leader of thsynagogue, he saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. 39When he haentered, he said to them, Why do you make a commotion and weep? The child inot dead but sleeping. 40And they laughed at him. Then he put them aloutside, and took the childs father and mother and those who were with himand went in where the child was. 41He took her by the hand and said to herTalitha cum, which means, Little girl, get up! 42And immediately the girgot up and began to walk about (she was twelve years of age). At this they werovercome with amazement. 43He strictly ordered them that no one should knothis, and told them to give her something to eat.
