Acts 9:36-42 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
36And in Joppe there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.
37And it came to pass in those days that she was sick, and died. Whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.
38And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppe, the disciples hearing that Peter was there, sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not be slack to come unto them.
39And Peter rising up, went with them. And when he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber. And all the widows stood about him weeping, and shewing him the coats and garments which Dorcas made them.
40And they all being put forth, Peter kneeling down prayed, and turning to the body, he said: Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes; and seeing Peter, she sat up.
41And giving her his hand, he lifted her up. And when he had called the saints and the widows, he presented her alive.
42And it was made known throughout all Joppe; and many believed in the Lord.
