She came up behind Jesus, touched the edge of his clothes, and her bleeding stopped at once.
Jesus asked, "Who touched me?" After everyone denied touching him, Peter said, "Teacher, the people are crowding you and pressing against you."
Jesus said, "Someone touched me. I know power has gone out of me."
The woman saw that she couldn't hide. Trembling, she quickly bowed in front of him. There, in front of all the people, she told why she touched him and how she was cured at once.
Jesus told her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace!"
While Jesus was still speaking to her, someone came from the synagogue leader's home. He said, "Your daughter is dead. Don't bother the teacher anymore."
When Jesus heard this, he told the synagogue leader, "Don't be afraid! Just believe, and she will get well."
Jesus went into the house. He allowed no one to go with him except Peter, John, James, and the child's parents.
Everyone was crying and showing how sad they were. Jesus said, "Don't cry! She's not dead. She's just sleeping."
They laughed at him because they knew she was dead.
But Jesus took her hand and called out, "Child, get up!"
