Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:1 - Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:2 - and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:3 - As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:4 - He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:5 - “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:6 - “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:7 - The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:8 - Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:9 - For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 9:10 - In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered.
