But Jesus took him by the hand
"Took hold of the hand of the child", as the Persic version renders it;
and lifted him up;
from the ground, on which he was cast by the spirit;
and he arose:
this is omitted in the Syriac and Arabic versions, though in one edition of the latter, according to De Dieu, it is rendered, "and he stood"; to which is added, "and went into his own house". The Persic version, instead of this clause, reads, "and the child was healed"; and all the expressions show, that he was perfectly well.
