Acts 9:36-43

CEB 36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas). Her life overflowed with good works and compassionate acts on behalf of those in need. NRS 36 Now in Joppa there was a disciple whose name was Tabitha, which in Greek is Dorcas. She was devoted to good works and acts of charity. CEB 37 About that time, though, she became so ill that she died. After they washed her body, they laid her in an upstairs room. NRS 37 At that time she became ill and died. When they had washed her, they laid her in a room upstairs. CEB 38 Since Lydda was near Joppa, when the disciples heard that Peter was there, they sent two people to Peter. They urged, "Please come right away!" NRS 38 Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, who heard that Peter was there, sent two men to him with the request, "Please come to us without delay." CEB 39 Peter went with them. Upon his arrival, he was taken to the upstairs room. All the widows stood beside him, crying as they showed the tunics and other clothing Dorcas made when she was alive. NRS 39 So Peter got up and went with them; and when he arrived, they took him to the room upstairs. All the widows stood beside him, weeping and showing tunics and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was with them. CEB 40 Peter sent everyone out of the room, then knelt and prayed. He turned to the body and said, "Tabitha, get up!" She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up. NRS 40 Peter put all of them outside, and then he knelt down and prayed. He turned to the body and said, "Tabitha, get up." Then she opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up. CEB 41 He gave her his hand and raised her up. Then he called God's holy people, including the widows, and presented her alive to them. NRS 41 He gave her his hand and helped her up. Then calling the saints and widows, he showed her to be alive. CEB 42 The news spread throughout Joppa, and many put their faith in the Lord. NRS 42 This became known throughout Joppa, and many believed in the Lord. CEB 43 Peter stayed for some time in Joppa with a certain tanner named Simon. NRS 43 Meanwhile he stayed in Joppa for some time with a certain Simon, a tanner.
