Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows1 stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.
Peter sent them all out of the room;2 then he got down on his knees3 and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, "Tabitha, get up."4 She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.
He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called the believers and the widows and presented her to them alive.
