TALITHA CUMI . The command addressed by our Lord to the daughter of Jairus ( Mark 5:41 ), and interpreted by the Evangelist, ‘Maiden, I say unto thee, arise.’ The relating of the actual (Aramaic) words used by Jesus is characteristic of St. Mark’s graphic narrative; cf. Mark 7:11; Mark 7:34; Mark 14:36; Mark 15:34 .
