Bible: Acts 9:32-43
Peter Heals Aeneas
9:32 Now 1 as Peter was traveling around from place to place, 2 he also came down to the saints who lived in Lydda. 3 9:33 He found there a man named Aeneas who had been confined to a mattress for eight years because 4 he was paralyzed. 9:34 Peter 5 said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus the Christ 6 heals you. Get up and make your own bed!” 7 And immediately he got up. 9:35 All 8 those who lived in Lydda 9 and Sharon 10 saw him, and they 11 turned 12 to the Lord.
Peter Raises Dorcas
9:36 Now in Joppa 13 there was a disciple named Tabitha (which in translation means 14 Dorcas). 15 She was continually doing good deeds and acts of charity. 16 9:37 At that time 17 she became sick 18 and died. When they had washed 19 her body, 20 they placed it in an upstairs room. 9:38 Because Lydda 21 was near Joppa, when the disciples heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Come to us without delay.” 22 9:39 So Peter got up and went with them, and 23 when he arrived 24 they brought him to the upper room. All 25 the widows stood beside him, crying and showing him 26 the tunics 27 and other clothing 28 Dorcas used to make 29 while she was with them. 9:40 But Peter sent them all outside, 30 knelt down, 31 and prayed. Turning 32 to the body, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” Then she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up. 33 9:41 He gave 34 her his hand and helped her get up. Then he called 35 the saints and widows and presented her alive. 9:42 This became known throughout all 36 Joppa, and many believed in the Lord. 37 9:43 So 38 Peter 39 stayed many days in Joppa with a man named 40 Simon, a tanner. 41
