Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
When he got to the house, he let no one go in with him but Peter, John, and James, and the child's father and mother.
And they laughed at him. But he drove them all out, and took the child's father and mother and the men who were with him and went into the room where the child was lying.
But when he had driven the people out, he went in and grasped her hand, and the girl got up.
And he went up to her, and grasping her hand, he made her rise. And the fever left her, and she waited on them.
And he grasped her hand and said to her, "Taleitha, koum!"??hat is to say, "Little girl, I tell you, get up!"
He took him by the hand and led him outside of the village, and spitting in his eyes he laid his hands on him and asked him, "Do you see anything?"
But Jesus grasped his hand and made him rise, and he stood up.
And he went up and touched the bier, and the bearers stopped. And he said, "Young man, I tell you, wake up!"
For just as the Father awakens the dead and makes them come to life, the Son makes anyone whom he chooses come to life.
After saying this he called out in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!"
But Peter put them all out of the room. Then he knelt down and prayed, and then turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, stand up!" She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up.
as the Scripture says, "I have made you the father of many nations." The promise is guaranteed in the very sight of God in whom he had faith, who can bring the dead to life and call into being what does not exist.
