It happened, as Kefa went throughout all those parts, he came down also to the holy ones who lived at Lud.
There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden for eight years, because he was paralyzed.
Kefa said to him, "Aeneas, Yeshua the Messiah heals you. Get up and make your bed!" Immediately he arose.
All who lived at Lud and in Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord.
Now there was at Yafo a certain talmid named Tavita, which when translated, means Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and acts of mercy which she did.
It happened in those days that she fell sick, and died. When they had washed her, they laid her in an upper chamber.
As Lud was near Yafo, the talmidim, hearing that Kefa was there, sent two men to him, imploring him not to delay in coming to them.
Kefa got up and went with them. When he had come, they brought him into the upper chamber. All the widows stood by him weeping, and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas made while she was with them.
Kefa put them all out, and kneeled down and prayed. Turning to the body, he said, "Tavita, get up!" She opened her eyes, and when she saw Kefa, she sat up.
He gave her his hand, and raised her up. Calling the holy ones and widows, he presented her alive.
It became known throughout all Yafo, and many believed in the Lord.
