Raising a Widow’s Son

7:11 Soon 1  afterward 2  Jesus 3  went to a town 4  called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. 7:12 As he approached the town gate, a man 5  who had died was being carried out, 6  the only son of his mother (who 7  was a widow 8 ), and a large crowd from the town 9  was with her. 7:13 When 10  the Lord saw her, he had compassion 11  for her and said to her, “Do not weep.” 12  7:14 Then 13  he came up 14  and touched 15  the bier, 16  and those who carried it stood still. He 17  said, “Young man, I say to you, get up! 7:15 So 18  the dead man 19  sat up and began to speak, and Jesus 20  gave him back 21  to his mother.
