A woman healed of hemorrhage
Mark 5:24b-34, SV
And a large crowd started following and shoving against him.
And there was a woman who had had a vaginal flow for twelve years, who had suffered much under many doctors, and who had spent everything she had, but hadn’t been helped at all, but instead had gotten worse.
When (this woman) heard about Jesus, she came up from behind in the crowd and touched his cloak. (No doubt she had been figuring, “If I could just touch his clothes, I’ll be cured!”) And the vaginal flow stopped instantly, and she sensed in her body that she was cured of her illness.
And suddenly, because Jesus realized that power had drained out of him, he turned around and started asking the crowd, “Who touched my clothes?”
And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd jostling you around and you’re asking, ‘Who touched me?’”
And he started looking around to see who had done this. Although the woman got scared and started trembling — she realized what she had done — she came and fell down before him and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, “Daughter, your trust has cured you. Go in peace, and farewell to your illness.”
Mark 5:24b-34, NRSV
And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him.
Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse.
She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.
Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?”
And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?’”
He looked all around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
