But Jesus heard it and said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; only believe, and she will be well."
When he arrived at the house, he would not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, and James, and the child's father and mother.
Everyone there was crying and mourning for the child. Jesus said, "Don't cry; the child is not dead - she is only sleeping!"
They all made fun of him, because they knew that she was dead.
But Jesus took her by the hand and called out, "Get up, child!"
Her life returned, and she got up at once, and Jesus ordered them to give her something to eat.
Her parents were astounded, but Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone what had happened.
