21#Mt 9:1; Lk 8:40When Jesus had crossed again by boat to the other side, many people gathered to Him. And He was beside the sea. 22#Lk 13:14; Ac 13:15One of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus, saw Jesus and came and fell at His feet 23#Mk 16:18; Lk 4:40and earnestly asked Him, “My little daughter is lying at the point of death. I ask You, come and lay Your hands on her, so that she may be healed. And she will live.” 24#Mk 5:31So Jesus went with him. And many people followed Him and pressed in on Him. 35#Mk 5:22; Jn 11:28While He was still speaking, some came from the house of the synagogue ruler and said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36#Lk 8:50As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid, only believe.” 37#Mk 9:2; 14:33He let no one follow Him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the tumult, and those who wept and wailed loudly. 39#Ac 20:10When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this uproar and weep? The girl is not dead, but sleeping.” 40They laughed at Him in ridicule. But when He had put them all out, He took the father and the mother of the girl and those who were with Him and entered where the girl was lying. 41#Mk 1:31He took the girl by the hand and said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” 42Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were greatly astonished. 43#Mt 8:4He strictly ordered them to let no one know of it and directed them to give her something to eat.
