(Mr 5:41), a Syriac or Aramaic expression, meaning, "Little maid, arise." Peter, who was present when the miracle was wrought, recalled the actual words used by our Lord, and told them to Mark.
Aramaic, "damsel, arise"; Christ's words to Jairus' daughter (Mr 5:41). From talah "a lamb."
The command addressed by our Lord to the daughter of Jairus (Mr 5:41), and interpreted by the Evangelist, 'Maiden, I say unto thee, arise.' The relating of the actual (Aramaic) words used by Jesus is characteristic of St. Mark's graphic narrative; cf. Mr 7:11,34; 14:36; 15:34.
Words in the Aramaic language, signifying 'Damsel, arise.' Mr 5:41. In the Syriac version the interpretation is omitted: the words themselves would be understood.
