While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogues house, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher.” But when Jesus heard it, He answered him saying, “Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.” When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, “Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead. But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Little girl, arise.” Luke 8:49–54
