35 While He was still speaking, they came from the synagogue leader, saying, "Your daughter [has] died. Why do you still trouble the Teacher?"
35 While he yet spake, they come from the ruler of the synagogue`s [house] saying, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Teacher any further?
36 But Jesus, immediately when He heard the word being spoken, said to the synagogue leader, "Do not be afraid; only believe."
36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
37 And He did not permit anyone to follow along with Him except for Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
37 And he suffered no man to follow with him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
38 And He went to the house of the synagogue leader, and observed a commotion, and [people] weeping and wailing, very much.
38 And they come to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he beholdeth a tumult, and [many] weeping and wailing greatly.
38 And they went to the house of the ruler of the synagogue. And he saw a tumult, and weeping, and much wailing.
39 And when He went in, He said to them, "Why are you making such commotion and weeping? The child is not dead, but she is asleep."
39 And entering, he said to them: “Why are you disturbed and weeping? The girl is not dead, but is asleep.”
39 So he entered and said to them, Why are you excited and crying? The little girl is not dead, but she is asleep.
40 And they were ridiculing Him. But putting them all out, He took along the father and the mother of the child, and those with Him, and He went in where the child was lying.
40 And they laughed him to scorn. But he, having put them all forth, taketh the father of the child and her mother and them that were with him, and goeth in where the child was.
41 And having grasped the hand of the child, He said to her, "Talitha, koumi,"which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise."
41 And taking the child by the hand, he saith unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise.
42 And immediately the little girl arose and was walking about, for she was twelve years old. And they were overcome with great amazement.
42 And straightway the damsel rose up, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And they were amazed straightway with a great amazement.
43 But He ordered them strictly that no one should know this, and said that something should be given her to eat.
43 And he charged them much that no man should know this: and he commanded that [something] should be given her to eat.
