Mark 5:22-24 and Mark 5:35-42 says:

22A leader of the synagogue came to that place. His name was Jairus. Jairus saw Jesus and bowed down before him.23Jairus begged and begged Jesus. He said, "My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her. Then she will be healed and will live."24So Jesus went with Jairus. Many people followed Jesus. They were pushing very close around him...35Jesus was still there speaking. Some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. The men said, "Your daughter is dead. There is now no need to bother the teacher (Jesus)." 36But Jesus did not care what the men said. Jesus said to the synagogue leader, "Don't be afraid; only believe."37Jesus let only Peter, James, and John the brother of James go with him. 38Jesus and these followers went to the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. Jesus saw many people there crying loudly. There was much confusion.39Jesus entered the house and said to the people, "Why are you people crying and making so much noise? This child is not dead. She is only sleeping." 40But all the people laughed at Jesus. Jesus told the people to leave the house. Then Jesus went into the room where the child was. He brought the child's father and mother and his three followers into the room with him. 41Then Jesus held the girl's hand and said to her, "Talitha, koum!" (This means, "Little girl, I tell you to stand up!")42The girl stood up and began walking. (The girl was twelve years old.) The father and mother and the followers were amazed.  (Easy-to-Read Version)

King James Version:

22And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23And besought him greatly, 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. 24And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him....35While 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? 36As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. 39And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 40And 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. 41And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. 42And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
