The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMatthew 9:26

though he strictly charged the parents, as the other evangelists
say, that they should tell no man what was done, he not affecting
the applause of men; yet it was not possible the thing should be
entirely concealed; since there was such a number of people, not
only relations, but neighbours, who full well knew, and were assured
she had been dead: when these saw her alive, walk about, eat and
drink, and converse with them, they must be persuaded of the
miracle, and relate it wherever they came; so that the fame of it
could not but be spread all over the country in which Capernaum was.
