Life of Jesus
Jairus' Daughter and the Woman With the Flow of Blood
Mat 9:18-26; Mk 5:22-43; Lk 8:41-56
18 While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him,
saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she
19 So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples.
20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from
behind and touched the hem of His garment.
21 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made
22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer,
daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.
23 When Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the flute players and the
noisy crowd wailing,
24 He said to them, "Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping." And they
25 But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and
the girl arose.
26 And the report of this went out into all that land.
22 And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when
he saw Him, he fell at His feet
23 and begged Him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter lies at the point of
death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live."
24 So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him.
25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve' years,
26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she
had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His
28 for she said, "If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well."
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body
that she was healed of the affliction.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him,
turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched My clothes?"
31 But His disciples said to Him, "You see the multitude thronging You, and You
say, 'Who touched Me?'"
32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.
33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came
and fell down before Him and 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 affliction."
35 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue's house
who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?"
36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the
synagogue, "Do not be afraid; only believe."
37 And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the
brother of James.
38 Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and
those who wept and wailed loudly.
39 When He came in, He said to them, "Why make this commotion and weep? The child
is not dead, but sleeping."
40 And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the
father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where
the child was lying.
41 Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, "Talitha, cumi," which is
translated, "Little girl, I say to you, arise."
42 Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve' years of age. And
they were overcome with great amazement.
43 But He commanded them strictly that no one should know it, and said that
something should be given her to eat.
41 And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the
synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus' feet and begged Him to come to his house,
42 for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But
as He went, the multitudes thronged Him.
43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her
livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,
44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her
flow of blood stopped.
45 And Jesus said, "Who touched Me?" When all denied it, Peter and those with him
said, "Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, 'Who touched
46 But Jesus said, "Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me."
47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and
falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the
reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
48 And He said to her, "Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well.
Go in peace."
49 While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue's
house, saying to him, "Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher."
50 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, "Do not be afraid; only
believe, and she will be made well."
51 When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James,
and John, and the father and mother of the girl.
52 Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, "Do not weep; she is not dead,
53 And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead.
54 But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, "Little

be given something to eat.
56 And her parents were astonished, but He charged them to tell no one what had
