After hearing the truth, Jesus responded to the woman in a kind manner. In fact, he did not mind curing her of her twelve year long sickness, to which he even replied, saying:
Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.
Now, when they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus found people crying and wailing loudly. It appears that Jairus' daughter has already died. But Jesus was not easily swayed, and so they laughed at him.
Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.
After he put the others out, he took the daughter by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum!" (meaning "Little girl, I say to you, rise!"). Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around. At this they were completely astonished.
