Bible: Luke 8:49-56

8:49 While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue ruler’s 1  house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.” 8:50 But when Jesus heard this, he told 2  him, “Do not be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” 3  8:51 Now when he came to the house, Jesus 4  did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, 5  and James, and the child’s father and mother. 8:52 Now they were all 6  wailing and mourning 7  for her, but he said, “Stop your weeping; she is not dead but asleep.” 8:53 And they began making fun 8  of him, because they knew 9  that she was dead. 10  8:54 But Jesus 11  gently took her by the hand and said, 12 Child, get up.” 8:55 Her 13  spirit returned, 14  and she got up immediately. Then 15  he told them to give her something to eat. 8:56 Her 16  parents were astonished, but he ordered them to tell no one 17  what had happened.
