"When I returned to Jerusalem1 and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance218
and saw the Lord speaking. 'Quick!' he said to me. 'Leave Jerusalem immediately, because they will not accept your testimony about me.'19
" 'Lord,' I replied, 'these men know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison3 and beat4 those who believe in you.
And when the blood of your martyra Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.'521
"Then the Lord said to me, 'Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.' "6
