Bible: Mark 5:21-33

Restoration and Healing

5:21 When Jesus had crossed again in a boat to the other side, a large crowd gathered around him, and he was by the sea. 5:22 Then 1  one of the synagogue rulers, 2  named Jairus, 3  came up, and when he saw Jesus, 4  he fell at his feet. 5:23 He asked him urgently, “My little daughter is near death. Come and lay your hands on her so that she may be healed and live.” 5:24 Jesus 5  went with him, and a large crowd followed and pressed around him.

5:25 Now 6  a woman was there who had been suffering from a hemorrhage 7  for twelve years. 8  5:26 She had endured a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all that she had. Yet instead of getting better, she grew worse. 5:27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 9  5:28 for she kept saying, 10 If only I touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 11  5:29 At once the bleeding stopped, 12  and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 5:30 Jesus knew at once that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes? 5:31 His disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing against you and you say, ‘Who touched me?’ 5:32 But 13  he looked around to see who had done it. 5:33 Then the woman, with fear and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before him and told him the whole truth.
