Then after three years I did go up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas and stayed with him fifteen days;
but I did not see any other apostle except James the Lord's brother.
In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!
Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia,
and I was still unknown by sight to the churches of Judea that are in Christ;
they only heard it said, "The one who formerly was persecuting us is now proclaiming the faith he once tried to destroy."
And they glorified God because of me.
