While He was still speaking, people
*came from the house of
the synagogue official, saying, 'Your daughter has died; why bother the Teacher further?'
But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, *said to the synagogue official, 'Do not be afraid, onlybelieve.'
And He allowed no one to accompany Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
They *came to the house of the synagogue official, and He *saw a commotion, and people
loudly weeping and wailing.
And after entering, He *said to them, 'Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child has not died, but is asleep.'
And they began
laughing at Him. But putting them all outside, He *took along the child’s father and mother and His own companions, and *entered the room
where the child was in bed.
