9 Then aSaul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2 and asked bletters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 1It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
7 And ethe men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one. 8 Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.
10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus fnamed Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.”
And he said, “Here I am, Lord.”
11 So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul gof Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. 12 And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”
13 Then Ananias answered, “Lord, I have heard from many about this man, hhow much 2harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem. 14 And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all iwho call on Your name.”
