Come and hold her in your arms and she will get better again. So Jesus went along with him. Then someone came and said, Its no use bothering Jesus any more. Your little girl has just died. But Jesus took no notice and said to Jairus, Dont worry. All you have to do is trust me. When they got to Jairus house, there were lots of people there and they were all crying. So Jesus said, Whats all this for? The little girl isnt dead, shes only asleep. But no one believed him. So Jesus sent everyone out of the house. Then he went into the room where the little girl was lying and he took with him only her mother and father and Peter, James and John. Then he held the girls hand and said Get up, little girl. And she did and walked around the room! Her father and mother were so surprised they just didnt know what to do, so Jesus told them to give the girl something to eat. The Gospel of the Lord.
