Bible: Acts 22:17-22

22:17 When 1  I returned to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, I fell into a trance 2  22:18 and saw the Lord 3  saying to me, ‘Hurry and get out of Jerusalem quickly, because they will not accept your testimony about me.’ 22:19 I replied, 4 Lord, they themselves know that I imprisoned and beat those in the various synagogues 5  who believed in you. 22:20 And when the blood of your witness 6  Stephen was shed, 7  I myself was standing nearby, approving, 8  and guarding the cloaks 9  of those who were killing him.’ 10  22:21 Then 11  he said to me, ‘Go, because I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’
