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!"
She came back to life and got up at once. He ordered her parents to give her something to eat.
They were amazed. Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
