And he gave her his hand, and lift her up
Off of the bed or bier where she was:
and when he had called the saints and widows;
the disciples, brethren and sisters, who were come together on this occasion, as well as the poor widows she had been kind to; the Ethiopic version reads without a copulative, "the holy widows"; and so might these widows be, even such as are described in ( 1 Timothy 5:10 )
presented her alive;
as Christ did the widow's son of Naam to her, ( Luke 7:15 ) and which no doubt was matter of great joy as well as astonishment to all the saints, and especially to the poor widows.
