Talitha

[ 1,,G5008,taleitha / talitha ] an Aramaic feminine meaning maiden," Mark 5:41, has been variously transliterated in the NT Greek mss. Koumi or Koum (Heb. and Aram., qum, "arise"), which follows, is interpreted by, "I say unto thee, arise." Koum is the better attested word; so in the Talmud, where this imperative occurs "seven times in one page" (Edersheim, Life and Times of Jesus, i, p. 631).
