Peter's Ministry

32 Now as Peter was traveling through all those regions, he came down also to 1the asaints who lived at b2Lydda. 33 There he found a man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years, for he was paralyzed. 34 Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; get up and make your bed." Immediately he got up. 35 And all who lived at c3Lydda and 4Sharon saw him, and they 5turned to the Lord. 36 Now in 6Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated in Greek is called dDorcas ); this woman was abounding with deeds of kindness and charity which she continually did. 37 And it happened eat that time that she fell sick and died; and when they had washed her body, they laid it in an 7upper room. 38 Since Lydda was near 8Joppa, 9the disciples, having heard that Peter was there , sent two men to him, imploring him, "Do not delay in coming to us." 39 So Peter arose and went with them. When he arrived, they brought him into the 10upper room; and all the 11widows stood beside him, weeping and showing all the ftunics and garments that Dorcas used to make while she was with them. 40 But Peter 12sent them all out and 13knelt down and prayed, and turning to the body, he said, "14Tabitha, arise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up. 41 And he gave her his hand and raised her up; and calling 15the gsaints and 16widows, he presented her alive. 42 It became known all over 17Joppa, and 18many believed in the Lord. 43 And Peter stayed many days in 19Joppa with 20a tanner named Simon.
