Talitha Koum – Arise

February 6, 2018

Ponder Jesus stretching out His hand to raise someone up by gently taking their hand. This is powerful!!!

Artist: Michael Page
Talitha Koum – Yeshua (Jesus) took the hand of the dead girl and said to her, “Talitha koum” [meaning “little one, arise”]. I have allowed the words He spoke to evoke the idea of his talith, or prayer shawl, having played a part in this miracle as it had moments before with the healing of the lady who grasped the tzitzit fringe on the corners of His talith – Matthew 5.


Mark 1:29-31 NET … Now as soon as they left the synagogue, they entered Simon and Andrew’s house, with James and John. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law was lying down, sick with a fever, so they spoke to Jesus at once about her. 31 He came and raised her up by gently taking her hand. Then the fever left her and she began to serve them.

Mark 5:39-42 NET … When he entered he said to them, “Why are you distressed and weeping? The child is not dead but asleep.” 40 And they began making fun of him. But he put them all outside and he took the child’s father and mother and his own companions and went into the room where the child was. 41 Then, gently taking the child by the hand, he said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up{arise}.” 42 The girl got up at once and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). They were completely astonished at this. 

The phrase Talitha Koum is probably linked to the Tallit – the hem of the prayer shawl Jesus wore.

In Mark 5:41 we read: Then Yahshua “took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Tallita kumi.” The text says this Hebrew phrase is to be interpreted, “Damsel, I say to you arise{kumi/koum[2891]}.” It seems this interpreting phrase may have been added to the gospel at a later time in an attempt to interpret “Tallita kumi.” The reason for believing this is that Tallita is not Hebrew for damsel or young girl. A more accurate translation of Tallita kumi is “ Arise to my Tallit or Arise even as my Tallit. A dramatic picture of Yahshua lifting her up with one hand and raising his Tallit heavenward with the other which is a customary way of prayer.


Did you see it?!!!!!! As Jesus gently takes someone’s hand to “raise” them up, the fringe – the hem of His prayer shawl rises along with His hand and arm. A beautiful image of Healing rising in His wings!


Word Study
Hem = Healing in His Wings
Malachi 4:2 … But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; 

From NetBible Mal 4:2

  • wings[03671] = wing, extremity, edge, winged, border, corner, shirt(of garment)
    =>Ruth 2:12  … … May the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings [03671] you have come to take refuge, reward you fully
    =>Ruth 3:9 … “Who are you?” he asked. “I am your servant Ruth,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment [03671] over me, since you are a kinsman-redeemer.”

Luke 8:44 … She came up behind Jesus and touched the fringe of His robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped.

From NetBible Lk 8:44

  • * The edge of his cloak refers to the kraspedon, the blue tassel{ tzitzit } on the garment that symbolized a Jewish man’s obedience to the law (Num 15:37-41). The woman thus touched the very part of Jesus’ clothing that indicated his ritual purity. {The issue of blood would have made her ritually unclean}
  • fringe/hem[2899] = tassel: the Jews had such appendages attached to their mantles to remind them of the law

Mark 6:56Wherever He entered into villages, cities, or in the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem[2899] of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.
Matthew 23:5But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels[2899] of their garments.

From NetBible Mt 23:5

  • * Phylacteries were small leather cases containing OT scripture verses, worn on the arm and forehead by Jews, especially when praying. The custom was derived from such OT passages as(Ex 13:9,16; Dt 6:8, 11:18)
  • * Tassels refer to the tassels that a male Israelite was obligated to wear on the four corners of his outer garment according to the Mosaic law (Num 15:38; Dt 22:12).

Healing in His Wings

Jesus’ Healing Wings

(See by Jonathan Gainey at

Jesus wore two articles of clothing, a halluq (ha-luke) and a talit (ta-leet). The talit is an undergarment. It is usually made of linen and covers the body all the way to the middle of the shin. The talit is a prayer shawl, also known as a prayer closet. The talit is worn over the halluq, and is pulled up over the head during prayer. On the corners of the talit are 4 tassels called tzitziyot (tzitzit – singular). The Jews continue to wear these tassels because of the command to wear them in Numbers 15:37-41 and Deut 22:12. God commanded this for His people as a reminder to obey His commands and not to follow after our own hearts.The English word that is translated “hem” is a translation of the Greek word “krespedon” which means “a tassel of twisted wool.”

The Jews of Jesus’ day believed that the tzitziyot (tassels) that were tied to the corners of the prayer shawl of the Messiah had healing powers. They believed this because of Malachi 4:2, which says, “the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.” The “sun of righteousness” is a Hebrew figure-of-speech or idiom, which means ”the Messiah,” and the word “wings” is the Hebrew word kanaph (kanaphim – plural), which is the same word that is used to when referring to the edge of a prayer shawl.

It is customary to recite Psalm 36:7 when putting on the Talit. “How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings.” The talit is considered to be symbolic of the covering shelter of God’s wings.

In Ruth 3:9 this Hebrew word kanaph is used as ruth asks to be covered, And he said, “Who are you?” So she answered, “I am Ruth, your maidservant. Take your maidservant under your wing {spread the corner of your garment over me}, for you are a close relative.”

The woman in Luke 8:43-48, understood the power and authority in the word of God when she reached out to take hold of the Tzitzit on Jesus’ talit. There is healing in His wings and by faith she took hold of it. In Matthew 14:36, we see that all who touched His Tzitzit were healed.

Matthew 14:36 NLT
The sick begged him to let them touch even the fringe of his robe, and all who touched it were healed.
Malachi 4:2 NLT
But for you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.

Malachi 4:2 NASB
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.

Malachi 4:2 KJV
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Lord Jesus, how priceless, how precious is Your unfailing love, Your loving-kindness! Thank You that we find refuge beneath Your wings. Help us to press in and seek You as the woman with the issue of the blood – desperate to touch the hem of Your garment. For we know that there is healing in Your wings. Like Ruth, we ask to be covered, hidden beneath Your wings, made whole …
… kept as the apple of Your eye.

Psalm 17:8
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
… Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.


{Added 1-12-2009}

In Mark 5:35-43 we read: Then Yahshua “took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Tallita kumi.” The text says this Hebrew phrase is to be interpreted, “Damsel, I say to you arise.” It seems this interpreting phrase may have been added to the gospel at a later time in an attempt to interpret “Tallita kumi.” The reason for believing this is that Tallita is not Hebrew for damsel or young girl. A more accurate translation of Tallita kumi is “ Arise to my Tallit or Arise even as my Tallit. A dramatic picture of Yahshua lifting her up with one hand and raising his Tallit heavenward with the other which is a customary way of prayer.

What a beautiful picture of being ‘lifted up’ and placed beneath His wings!


LOOK! More about the Tallit!


In Rev 19:11-16 in the King James we read and as I have said before it is why I believe Yahshua will be wearing a Tallit when he comes at His second coming:
11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.
12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of G-d.
14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of G-d Almighty.
16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 

Himation (vesture), used two times in this passage, is the Greek word, which refers to the Hebrew Tallit. He is clothed with this vesture. Clothed here is the Greek word periballo, meaning cast or thrown about, like a shawl is worn which is how a Tallit is put on. A Tallit also rests upon the thighs and there is writing upon it. 

Today it is traditional for Tallit to have stripes on each end. The stripes are usually blue and this is associated with the blue strand of the Tzitzit. Black is for mourning for the temple. The number and meaning of the stripes may vary but to believers the stripes symbolize that we are healed by the Messiah’s stripes.                

One last application we see in the Messianic Scriptures (New Testament) is the spirit of G-d descending on Yahshua as a Dove. Doves have wings or kanfort as does a TALLIT. The dove descended upon him as a Tallit on His shoulders. This began Yahshua’s ministry.


—> Did you see it?!!! This seems to combine the images of the waters breaking out — the white horses coming in a mighty wave with the voice of many waters — with ARISING — being lifted up as the sun of righteousness rises with healing in His wings! 

How awesome to think the King of kings returns wearing the Talllit dipped in blood — and the symbol of the dove descending as a Tallit! 

Revelation 21:5-7 
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 

6He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 

Lifted from death to life

“Tallita kumi”

Psalm 110 (New King James Version)
–A Psalm of David.
 1 The LORD said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
2 The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. 

          **{from the fortress of Zion! 2 Sam 5}
Rule in the midst of Your enemies! 

3 Your people shall be volunteers
In the day of Your power;
In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning,
You have the dew of Your youth.
4 The LORD has sworn
And will not relent,
“You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.” 

5 The Lord is at Your right hand;
He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He shall judge among the nations,
He shall fill the places with dead bodies,
He shall execute the heads of many countries.
7 He shall drink of the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He shall lift up the head.

In Mark 5: 41
Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”Some scholars believe that word comes from the word “Talith” and that the literal translation of this is, “Little girl who is now in my tallit, arise!” and the power of YHVH caused her to rise.
