Now there was in 1Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which, translated, means Dorcas.a She was full of 2good works and acts of charity.
In those days she became ill and died, and when they had washed her, they laid her in 3an upper room.
Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him, urging him, 4"Please come to us without delay."
So Peter rose and went with them. And when he arrived, they took him to 5the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping and showing tunicsb and other garments that Dorcas made while she was with them.
