Dorcas Raised

36 Now in Joppa there was a certain female disciple {named}a Tabitha (which translated means "Dorcas").b She was full of good deeds and charitable giving which she was constantly doing.c 37 Now it happened that in those days [after]d becoming sick, she died. And [after]e washing [her],f they placed her in an upstairs room. 38 And [because]g Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, [when they]h heard that Peter was in {Lydda},i sent two men to him, urging, "Do not delay to come to us!" 39 So Peter got up [and]j accompanied them. [When he]k arrived, they brought [him]l up to the upstairs room, and all the widows came to him, weeping and showing [him]m tunics and [other] clothing that Dorcas used to make [while she]n was with them. 40 But Peter sent [them] all outside, and, falling to [his]o knees, he prayed. And turning toward the body, he said, "Tabitha, get up!" And she opened her eyes, and [when she]p saw Peter, she sat up. 41 And he gave her [his] hand [and]q raised her up. And he called the saints and the widows [and]r presented her alive. 42 And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord. 43 And it happened that [he] stayed many days in Joppa with a certain Simon, a tanner.s
