"steht" is the third person form of "stehen". So it literally translates to "stands"

The literal translation of the sentence would be "he stands up"

aufstehen = get up

And you can use it in that context as well: "er steht auf" = "he rises from his seat"

Steht translates stand, so the literally translation would be something like "He stands up"
