25. And Matt. ix.20. behold, Mark v. 25. a certain woman, Matt, ix. 20• which was diseased Mark v. 25. which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26. And had suffered many things of

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

27. When she heard of Jesus, came into the press behind,

and touched his garment. Matt, ix.20. touched the hem of his garment: Mark v. 28. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be

whole. Lakeviči.44. and immediately her issue of blood stanched. Mark v. 29. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried

up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that

plague. 30. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue

had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and

said, Who touched my clothes ?

31. And Lukeviii.45. When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Mark v. 31. his disciples said unto him, Lukeviii.45. Master, Mark v. 31. Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, Lukeviii.45. and press thee, Mark v. 31. and sayest thou, Who touched me? Lakevič.46. And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I

perceive that virtue is gone out of me. Mark v. 32. And he looked round about to see her that had done

this thing. 33.

But the woman Lakeviij.47. when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came Mark v. 33. fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her,

and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. Lakeviii.47. she declared unto him, before all the people, for what

cause she had touched him, and how she was healed im

mediately. Matt. ix. 22. and when he saw her, he said Lukeviii.48. unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort : Mark v. 34. Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole : go in peace,

and be whole of thy plague. Matt.ix. 22. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Mark v. 35.

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is

dead ; why troublest thou the Master any farther? Lukeviji.50.

that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was


41. And he took the damsel by the hand, Lakeviii.54. and called, Mark v. 41. and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being inter

" The various sections of this chapter are placed in the same
order in which they are respectively inserted in the arrange-
ments of the five harmonizers, by whom I am principally guided.
Doddridge considers John vii. 1. as belonging to the same pas-
sages to which it is annexed by the others, though, for the
sake of convenience, he joins it with the rest of the chapter (a).
Michaelis also places the calling of the twelve Apostles in the
order of St. Matthew, and inserts John vii. 1. at the head of
various passages, which he considers supplementary to the ac-
counts of the other Evangelists.

population of Judea, Samaria, and Galilee, had heard of his
miracles and preaching. Many had followed him from place to
place, and from these he selected twelve, as the constant
witnesses of his actions. The word tkde vuévol, which in our
translation is interpreted "they fainted,!' is generally cousi-
