Nark v. el. much people gathered unto him,
Luke viii. 40. for they were all waiting for him,
Mark v. 21. and he was nigh unto the sea. And

While he spake these things unto them,
behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the syna-
gogue, Jairus by name ; and when he saw him,

he fell at his feet, Luke viii. 41. down at Jesus' feet, and besought him Matt, ix. 18. and worshipped him,

And besought him greatly, Luke viii. 41. that he would come into his house : Mark v. 23. saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of

death : I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying.

And Jesus arose,

And Jesus went with him; and
Matt. ix. 19. so did his disciples.

Mark v. 24. much people followed him, and thronged him.

a certain woman, Matt. ix. 20. which was diseased

which had an issue of blood twelve years,

And had suffered many things of many physi

cians, and had spent all that she had, Luke viii. 43. upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Mark v. 26. and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

With the points, noņa 3 pers. sing. perf. fæm, signifies mortua est ; and Ona: past fæm, signifies moriens (6). I have rejected the points of the various Hebrew words used in the several quotations in these notes : because the arguments which may satisfy us of their antiquity, do not entirely prove their authority.

In the fifth volume, 4to. edit. p. 332—372. of Lardner's Works, is a long and admirable vindication of the three miracles of our Saviour-the raising the widow's son, the daughter of Jairus, and Lazarus; it is too long to abridge.

Among the Barrington papers I find an inquiry into the circumstances of this miracle. It is contained in a letter to Dr. Lardner, dated Dec. 30, 1729. Among the papers prefixed to the Life of Dr. Lardner, in the beginning of the first volume, is a reply throughout. As it is probable these papers of Lord Barrington may be eventually submitted to the approbation of the public, it is not worth while entering, at present, into any farther discussion on this subject.

When she heard of Jesus, came in the press Mark v. 27. behind, and touched his garment; touched the hem of his garment:

For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I Mark v. 28. shall be whole. and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

And straightway the fountain of her blood was Mark v. 29. dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

And Jesus, 'immediately knowing in himself Mark v. 30. that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

And When all denied, Peter and they that were with Luke viii. 45. him said, his disciples said unto him, Master, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me : Luke viii. 46. for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

And he looked round about to see her that had Mark v. 32. done this thing.

But the woman when the woman saw that she was not hid, she Luke vili, 47, fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in Mark v. 33. her, and fell down before him, and told him all the truth; she declared unto him, before all the people, for Luke viii. 47. what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. and when he saw her, he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go Mark v. 34. in peace, and be whole of thy plague. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Matt. ix. 22.

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler Mark v. 35. of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead; why troublest thou the Master any farther?

But when Jesus heard it, As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, Mark v. 36. he answered him, and said unto the ruler of the synagogue, saying,
