And immediately the little girl got up and began to walk, for she was 12 years old. And immediately they were amazed and greatly bewildered. Bible

“for she was twelve years old.” This describes why she could walk even though she had been referred to as “little” in this and other Gospel records.

“amazed…with a great amazement.” This is the figure of speech polyptoton, the repetition of both noun and verb forms together (Bullinger, Figures of Speech). It highlights the degree of astonishment, they were greatly amazed.
