But [Mr.] as soon as Fefus heard the Word that was spoken, he faith unto the Ruler of the Synagogue, Be not afraid ; only believe, (L.) and she Thall be made whole. [Mr.] And he suffered no Man to follow him, save Peter and fames, and fohn the Brother of James. And he cometh to the House of the Ruler of the Synagogue, [L.] and all wept and bewailed her.

[L.] And her Spirit came again, [Mr.] and straightway the Damfel arose and WALKED, for she was of the Age of twelve Years.. [L.] And her PARENTS were ASTONISHED (Mr.) with a grear Astonishment. And



he charged them straitly that no Man should know it, and [L.] that they should tell no Man what was done, (Mr.] and commanded that something should be given her to eat. [M.] And the Fame hereof went abroad into all that Land.
