THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES - Chapter 9 - Verse 38

Verse 38. Was nigh to Joppa. It was about six miles.

They sent unto him, etc. Why they sent is not affirmed. It is probable that they desired his presence to comfort and sustain them in their affliction. It is certainly possible that they expected he would restore her to life; but as this is not mentioned—as the apostles had as yet raised up no one from the dead—as even Stephen had not been restored to life—we have no authority for assuming, or supposing, that they had formed any such expectation.

{1} "not delay" "be grieved"
