To speak (λαλέω laleō)

And the dead youth sat up and began to speak. And He gave him to his mother. (Lk 7:15)

καὶ ἀνεκάθισεν ὁ νεκρὸς καὶ ἤρξατο λαλεῖν, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ.

Et resedit, qui erat mortuus, et coepit loqui; et dedit illum matri suae. 

The first action of the young man after resurrection was speech. We don’t know what he was talking about. The very fact of speaking proves that the return to health, to life, is complete. He whose eyes and mouth were closed by death is now alive again. Jesus gives him to his mother. She regained what according to human logic she lost irretrievably. She can talk to him again, laugh and be with him. The parade of death has been stopped. Now life returns to the city, to the house. The name of this city carries an important message because it means “beauty”. The beauty of life is an invaluable gift from God.
