Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
21 And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him; and he was beside the sea. 21 When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake.
22 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja'irus by name; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 22 Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at his feet
23 and besought him, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." 23 and pleaded earnestly with him, "My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live."
24 And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him.
25 And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years.
26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
27 She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,
28 For she said, "If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well." 28 because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed."
29 And immediately the hemorrhage ceased; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, "Who touched my garments?" 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"
31 And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, 'Who touched me?'" 31 "You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?' "
32 And he looked around to see who had done it. 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
33 But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.
34 And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease." 34 He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
35 While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler's house some who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?" 35 While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. "Your daughter is dead," they said. "Why bother the teacher any more?"
36 But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." 36 Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe."
37 And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.
38 When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.
39 And when he had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." 39 He went in and said to them, "Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep."
40 And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 40 But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child's father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was.
41 Taking her by the hand he said to her, "Tal'itha cu'mi"; which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, ""Talitha koum!"" (which means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!").
42 And immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.
43 And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
