(75) A Dead Girl and a Sick Woman
Matthew 9:18-26, Mark 5:21-43, Luke 8:40-56
[A]When Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered and welcomed Him, for they were all waiting for Him.
While He was near the sea, [B]speaking to them about these things, look, there came a man named Jairus, one of the rulers of the synagogue. When he saw Jesus, he came and fell at His feet, worshiping and begging Him to come to his house. “My little daughter,” he said, “lies at the point of death, and may even now be dead. But come and lay your hands on her that she may be healed, and she will live.”
She was his only daughter, about twelve years of age. And she was dying.
[C]Jesus arose and followed him, along with His disciples and many others. As He went the crowd reached after Him. [D]Suddenly, a certain woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind Jesus and touched the hem of His garment. She had suffered many things from many physicians, spending all her money on them without getting any better. In fact, she grew worse and could not be healed by any. [E]So when she heard about Jesus, she came up behind Him in the crowd and touched the border of His garment. For she said to herself, “If I can only touch His clothes, I will be well.”
And the fountain of her blood immediately stopped. It dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
[F]Jesus immediately knew within Himself that power had gone out of Him, so He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched me? Who touched my clothes?”
When they all denied it, Peter and the disciples said, “Master, you see the people crowding against you, and you say: Who touched me?”
[G]“Somebody has touched me,” He said, “for I perceive that power has gone out of me.”
[H]He kept looking around to see who had done this thing; and when He saw her, the woman saw that she was not hidden from Him. So she, knowing what was done in her, was afraid and came to Him, trembling. She fell down before Him, telling Him all the truth and declaring to all the people the reason she had touched Him, and how she was immediately healed.
Then He said to her, “Daughter, take comfort; your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
And the woman was healed from that hour.
[I]While He was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler, saying, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Master any further?”
[J]As soon as Jesus heard this, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Don’t be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.”
[K]Jesus didn’t allow anyone to follow Him, except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
[L]When He came to the house of the synagogue ruler, He saw a commotion and those who wept and wailed loudly. [M]Jesus entered the ruler’s house and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, and He said, “Let me through.”
He allowed no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. The people were all weeping and wailing over her, but He said, “Why all this commotion? Do not weep; for the girl is not dead, but is asleep.”
[N]And they laughed at Him with scorn, knowing that she was dead.
After He put them all out, He took the father and mother, and those who were with Him, and went in where the child was lying. He took her by the hand and called her, saying, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”
[O]And her spirit returned. Then she arose immediately and walked; for she was twelve years old. Her parents were greatly astonished and amazed, but Jesus commanded them to give her something to eat and not tell anyone what was done. [P]And the news of this went abroad into all that land.

Matthew 9:18-26, KJV
18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. 19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples. 20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: 21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. 22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. 23 And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, 24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. 25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

Mark 5:21-43, KJV
21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea. 22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. 24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him. 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? 31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. 35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. 39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. 41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. 42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.

40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him. 41 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: 42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him. 43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. 49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. 50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. 51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. 56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
