Luke 8:42-48 BBE
(42) ... But while he was on his way, the people were pushing to be near him. (43) And a woman, who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had given all her money to medical men, and not one of them was able to make her well, (44) Came after him and put her hand on the edge of his robe, and straight away the flowing of her blood was stopped. (45) And Jesus said, Who was touching me? And when they all said, It is not I, Peter and those who were with him said, Master, the people are pushing round you on every side. (46) But Jesus said, Someone was touching me, for I had the feeling that power had gone out from me. (47) And when the woman saw that she was not able to keep it secret, she came, shaking with fear, and falling down before him she made clear before all the people the reason for her touching him, and how she was made well straight away. (48) And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.

Luke 8:42-48 NWT
. . .As he was going the crowds thronged him. 43 And a woman, subject to a flow of blood for twelve years, who had not been able to get a cure from anyone, 44 approached from behind and touched the fringe of his outer garment, and instantly her flow of blood stopped. 45 So Jesus said: "Who was it that touched me?" When they were all denying it, Peter said: "Instructor, the crowds are hemming you in and closely pressing you." 46 Yet Jesus said: "Someone touched me, for I perceived that power went out of me." 47 Seeing that she had not escaped notice, the woman came trembling and fell down before him and disclosed before all the people the cause for which she touched him and how she was healed instantly. 48 But he said to her: "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go your way in peace."

Luke 8:42-48 CEV
(42) ... While Jesus was on his way, people were crowding all around him. (43) In the crowd was a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years. She had spent everything she had on doctors, but none of them could make her well. (44) As soon as she came up behind Jesus and barely touched his clothes, her bleeding stopped. (45) "Who touched me?" Jesus asked. While everyone was denying it, Peter said, "Master, people are crowding all around and pushing you from every side." (46) But Jesus answered, "Someone touched me, because I felt power going out from me." (47) The woman knew that she could not hide, so she came trembling and knelt down in front of Jesus. She told everyone why she had touched him and that she had been healed right away. (48) Jesus said to the woman, "You are now well because of your faith. May God give you peace!"
