But the Lord said unto him - Be going thy way; for, a choice vessel unto me, is this man, to bear my name before both thenations and kings, and the sons of Israel; For, I, will let him understand how many things he must needs, for my name, suffer. And Ananias departed, and entered into the house; and, laying upon him his hands, said - Saul, brother! The Lord, hath sent me, - Jesus, who appeared unto thee in the way by which thou wast coming, - that thou mayest recover sight, and be filled with Holy Spirit. And, straightway, there fell from him - from his eyes, - as it were scales; he recovered sight also, and, arising, was immersed: And, receiving food, gained strength. And he came to be with the disciples who were in Damascus certain days; And, straightway, in the synagogues, he began proclaiming Jesus, that, This, is the Son of God. And all who were hearing were astonished, and began to say - is not, this, he who destroyed, in Jerusalem, them that invoke this name; and, here, for this purpose, had come, in order that he might lead them, bound, unto the High-priests?

I fell also to the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me - Saul! Saul! Why, me, art thou persecuting? And, I, answered - Who art thou, Lord?

Now, they who were with me, beheld, indeed, the light, but heard not, the voice, of him that was speaking with me And said - What shall I do, Lord? And, the Lord, said unto me - Arise, and be going thy way into Damascus, and, there, shall it be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do. But, as I could not see clearly owing to the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them who were with me, I came into Damascus. And, one Ananias, a man devout according to the law, well-attested by all the Jews that dwelt there, coming unto me, and standing over me, said - Saul, brother! look up. And, I, in that very hour, looked up on him. And he said - The God of our fathers, hath chosen thee to get to know his will, and to see the Righteous One, - and to hear a voice out of his mouth. Because thou shalt be a witness to him unto all men, of the things which thou hast seen and heard. And, now, what art thou going to do?

Among which things, being on a journey unto Damascus, with the authority and commission of the High-priests, at midday, on the road, I saw, O King, from heaven, above the splendour of the sun, shining around me, a light, and around them who, with me, were journeying; and, when we were all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice, saying unto me, in the Hebrew language - Saul! Saul! why, me, art thou persecuting? It is hard for thee, against goads, to be kicking! And, I, said - Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said - I, am Jesus, whom, thou, art persecuting!
