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.
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.

13 And when The Lord saw her, He had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
14 And He came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And He said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And He delivered him to his mother.
16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That A Great Prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited His people.
17 And this rumor of Him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
