49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader.e “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”
51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James,f and the child’s father and mother. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourningg for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.”h
53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!”i 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.j
