While he was thus speaking to them, behold, a ruler came in and knelt before him, saying, "My daughter has just died; but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live."
And Jesus rose and followed him, with his disciples.
And behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment;
for she said to herself, "If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well."
Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well." And instantly the woman was made well.
And when Jesus came to the ruler's house, and saw the flute players, and the crowd making a tumult,
he said, "Depart; for the girl is not dead but sleeping." And they laughed at him.
