For this my son was dead, and is alive again. He was dead by reason of his sins; he is alive again because of his repentance.

AD 1849
Was dead, and is come to life again. A sinner, in mortal sin, is deprived of the divine grace, which is the spiritual life of the soul. At his conversion it is restored to him, and he begins to live again. (Witham)
