because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes,1 I will be healed."
Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.230
At once Jesus realized that power3 had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"31
"You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?' "
But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.
He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you.4 Go in peace5 and be freed from your suffering."35
While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler.6 "Your daughter is dead," they said. "Why bother the teacher any more?"
Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe."37
He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.738
When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler,8 Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.
