Mathew 9: 18-26
While Jesus was saying this, a Jewish official came to him, knelt down before him, and said, “my daughter has just died; but come and place your hands on her, and she will live.”
So Jesus got up and flowered him, and his disciples went along with him.
A woman who had suffered from severe bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “if only I touched his cloak, I will get well.”
Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, “Courage, my daughter! Your faith has made you well.” At the at very moment the woman became well.
Then Jesus went into the official’s house. When he saw the musicians for the funeral and the people all stirred up, he said, “Get out, everybody! The little girl is not dead—she is only sleeping!”
Then they all started making fun of him. But as soon as the people had been put out, Jesus went into the girl’s room and took hold of her hand, and she got up.
The news about this spread
all over that part of the country.
