2 Corinthians 1:12-22
 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
 For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;
 As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.
 And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit;
 And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea.
 When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?
 But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.
 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.
 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
 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 further?
 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
