Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 9:40-43

_ _ Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down — the one in imitation of his Master’s way (Luke 8:54; and compare 2 Kings 4:33); the other, in striking contrast with it. The kneeling became the lowly servant, but not the Lord Himself, of whom it is never once recorded that he knelt in the performance of a miracle.

_ _ opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up — The graphic minuteness of detail here imparts to the narrative an air of charming reality.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:36-43.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 9:40

Peter having put them all out — That he might have the better opportunity of wrestling with God in prayer, said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, sat up — Who can imagine the surprise of Dorcas, when called back to life? Or of her friends, when they saw her alive? For the sake of themselves, and of the poor, there was cause of rejoicing, and much more, for such a confirmation of the Gospel. Yet to herself it was matter of resignation, not joy, to be called back to these scenes of vanity: but doubtless, her remaining days were still more zealously spent in the service of her Saviour and her God. Thus was a richer treasure laid up for her in heaven, and she afterward returned to a more exceeding weight of glory, than that from which so astonishing a providence had recalled her for a season.
