Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
32 Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints that lived at Lydda. 32 As Peter traveled about the country, he went to visit the saints in Lydda.
33 There he found a man named Aene'as, who had been bedridden for eight years and was paralyzed. 33 There he found a man named Aeneas, a paralytic who had been bedridden for eight years.
34 And Peter said to him, "Aene'as, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed." And immediately he rose. 34 "Aeneas," Peter said to him, "Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and take care of your mat." Immediately Aeneas got up.
35 And all the residents of Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord. 35 All those who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord.
36 Now there was at Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which means Dorcas. She was full of good works and acts of charity. 36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is Dorcas ), who was always doing good and helping the poor.
37 In those days she fell sick and died; and when they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room. 37 About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room.
38 Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him entreating him, "Please come to us without delay." 38 Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, "Please come at once!"
39 So Peter rose and went with them. And when he had come, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping, and showing tunics and other garments which Dorcas made while she was with them. 39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.
40 But Peter put them all outside and knelt down and prayed; then turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, rise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up. 40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, "Tabitha, get up." She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.
41 And he gave her his hand and lifted her up. Then calling the saints and widows he presented her alive. 41 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.
42 And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord. 42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord.
43 And he stayed in Joppa for many days with one Simon, a tanner. 43 Peter stayed in Joppa for some time with a tanner named Simon.
