Bible: Acts 9:1-8

The Conversion of Saul

9:1 Meanwhile Saul, still breathing out threats 1  to murder 2  the Lord’s disciples, went to the high priest 9:2 and requested letters from him to the synagogues 3  in Damascus, so that if he found any who belonged to the Way, 4  either men or women, he could bring them as prisoners 5  to Jerusalem. 6  9:3 As he was going along, approaching 7  Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven flashed 8  around him. 9:4 He 9  fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, 10  why are you persecuting me?” 11  9:5 So he said, “Who are you, Lord?” He replied, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting! 9:6 But stand up 12  and enter the city and you will be told 13  what you must do.” 9:7 (Now the men 14  who were traveling with him stood there speechless, 15  because they heard the voice but saw no one.) 16  9:8 So Saul got up from the ground, but although his eyes were open, 17  he could see nothing. 18  Leading him by the hand, his companions 19  brought him into Damascus.
