When the Rabbi had crossed over again in the boat to the other side of the sea, a large crowd gathered around him; and so he stayed by the seashore. One of the synagogue leaders named Ya'ir came up, and on seeing the Rabbi, fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death; please come and place your hands on her, so that she will get well and live." And the Rabbi went off with him; and a large crowd was following him and pressing in on him.

While he was speaking, they came from the house of the synagogue leader, saying, "Your daughter has died; why trouble the Rabbi anymore?" But the Rabbi, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue leader, "Do not be afraid any longer, only believe." And he allowed no one to accompany him, except Petros and Yaakov and Yochanan the brother of Yaakov.

They came to the house of the synagogue leader; and the Rabbi saw a commotion, and people loudly weeping and wailing. And entering in, he said to them, "Why make a commotion and weep? The child has not died, but is asleep."  They began laughing at him. But putting them all out, he took along the child's father and mother and his own companions, and entered the room where the child was. Taking the child by the hand, he said to her, "Talyeta kumi!" [which translated means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!"]. Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old.  And immediately they were completely astounded.  And he gave them strict orders that no one should know about this, and he said that something should be given her to eat.
