Bible: Matt 9:18-26

Restoration and Healing

9:18 As he was saying these things, a ruler came, bowed low before him, and said, “My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her and she will live.” 9:19 Jesus and his disciples got up and followed him. 9:20 But 1  a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage 2  for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge 3  of his cloak. 4  9:21 For she kept saying to herself, 5 If only I touch his cloak, I will be healed.” 6  9:22 But when Jesus turned and saw her he said, “Have courage, daughter! Your faith has made you well.” 7  And the woman was healed 8  from that hour. 9:23 When Jesus entered the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the disorderly crowd, 9:24 he said, “Go away, for the girl is not dead but asleep.” And they began making fun of him. 9  9:25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and gently took her by the hand, and the girl got up. 9:26 And the news of this spread throughout that region. 10
