Berean Study Bible
After the crowd had been put outside, Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up.
Berean Literal Bible
And when the crowd had been put outside, having entered, He took hold of her hand, and the girl arose.
New King James Version
But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose.
New American Standard Bible
But when the crowd had been sent out, He entered and took her by the hand, and the girl got up.
When the people (crowd, Revised Version; cf. Matthew 9:23) were put forth, He went in.
Till they were cast out he would not enter.
They with their hired sorrow would disturb the reverential feelings essential to the performance of such a miracle.
And took her by the hand, and the maid (Matthew 9:24) arose.
Matthew omits all mention of Christ’s words to her.
She was raised
Jesus raised the dead from the bed, from the grave; in this instance, (see Luke 7:14; John 11:44).
And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
Of no one miracle is this elsewhere affirmed. (For the fame of him generally, cf. Matthew 9:31 and Matthew 4:24.)
Doubtless Northern Palestine.
Not all hands are alike.
Is there an occult science of Palmistry; are there those who read the future of man in the hand?
Are all grips of the same intensity?
Jesus took her by the hand
Why was Jesus’s hand needed?
Could no other hand be found?
We are sometimes shut up to the help of one man, even in our lower life.
- For our own doctor: his very voice would do the patient good.
- For our own physician: he knows just what to give when the sufferer is in this crisis of agony.
- For our old mother: there was healing, there was comfort in her gentle hand.
- For the old father: if he had been here he would have found the key to open this gate.
- For the old pastor that first showed us the light and brought us to prayer: he would know what to say to us just now.
We have, therefore, analogy to help us in this matter. In the great crises of life there is often only one hand that can help us.
As a little girl of four lay dying, the following conversation took place between her father and herself.
“Papa, does the doctor think I am going to die?”
With a bursting heart, her father told her the truth.
“Papa, the grave looks very dark. Won’t you go down with me into it?”
“I cannot go until the Lord calls me.”
“Then, papa, won’t you let mamma go with me?”
It almost broke the father’s heart to utter the same truth as before.
Turning her face to the wall, she wept; but then, having before this been taught of God, prayed. Soon, therefore, she looked up with a joyful face and said,
“Papa, the grave is not dark now, Jesus will go with me!”
The daughter got up
Jairus’ daughter was dying when her father went to the Savior.
He only expected it from the Lord.
The Savior, however, was held up by the crowd and by the woman with an issue of blood.
Then someone from Jairus’ house came to say that his daughter had died.
The Prince of life goes with Jairus.
The Prince of life can not only heal a dying person, but He can also raise from the dead.
The Lord drove the crowd out of the house, and took the hand of the daughter of Jairus, and the daughter arose.
The king of terror must yield to the Prince of life.
By nature we are dead in sins and trespasses.
It is necessary to be made alive from dead.
If it will be for eternity, then one will have to be resurrected from that state of death.
That resurrection from spiritual death is an act of God for which the Lord wants to be prayed for.
- Is it your desire to partake of that miracle?
- Were you already awakened by the Gospel of the Lord?
