Jesus brings Jairus's daughter back from the dead
8:41 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:
8:42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
8:49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's
, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
8:50 But when Jesus heard
, he answered him, saying,
Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
8:51 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.
8:52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said,
Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.
8:53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
8:54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying,
8:55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.
8:56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
5:22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
5:23 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.
went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.
5:38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
5:39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them,
Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
5:40 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.
5:41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her,
which is being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
5:42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was
of the age
of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
9:18 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.
9:19 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and
9:23 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
9:24 He said unto them,
Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth.
And they laughed him to scorn.
9:25 But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
