Luke 8 : 43 - 56

Chapter 8

43Now 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,
44came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
45And 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 Me?"'
46But Jesus said, "Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me."
47Now 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.
48And He said to her, "Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace."
49While 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."
50But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, "Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well."
51When 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.
52Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, "Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping."
53And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead.
54But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, "Little girl, arise."
55Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given something to eat.
56And her parents were astonished, but He charged them to tell no one what had happened.
