37And He permitted no one to accompany Him except Peter and James and John the brother of James.
38When they arrived at the house of the ruler of the synagogue, He looked [carefully and with understanding] at [the] tumult and the people weeping and wailing loudly.
39And when He had gone in, He said to them, Why do you make an uproar and weep? The little girl is not dead but is sleeping.
40And they laughed and jeered at Him. But He put them all out, and, taking the child’s father and mother and those who were with Him, He went in where the little girl was lying.
41Gripping her [firmly] by the hand, He said to her, Talitha cumi–which translated is, Little girl, I say to you, arise [from the sleep of death]!
42And instantly the girl got up and started walking around–for she was twelve years old. And they were utterly astonished and overcome with amazement.
