One day the Rabbi went to a city called Nai'm; and his talmidim were going along with him, accompanied by a large crowd. Now as he approached the gate of the city, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow.  A sizeable crowd from the city was with her.  When the Rabbi saw her, he felt compassion for her, and said to her, "Do not weep." And he came up and touched the coffin; and the bearers came to a halt. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, rise up!"

The dead man sat up and began to speak. And the Rabbi gave him back to his mother. Fear gripped them all, and they began glorifying Hashem [G-d], saying, "A great prophet has arisen among us!" and, "Hashem has visited His people!"  This report concerning the Rabbi went out all over Judea and in all the surrounding areas.
