Now in Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. And the Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias!" "Here I am, Lord!" he said.
"Get up and go to the street called Straight," the Lord said to him, "to the house of Judas, and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, since he is praying there.
In a vision a he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and placing his hands on him so he may regain his sight."
"Lord," Ananias answered, "I have heard from many people about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem.
And he has authority here from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your name."
But the Lord said to him, "Go! For this man is My chosen instrument to carry My name before Gentiles, kings, and the sons of Israel.
I will certainly show him how much he must suffer for My name!"
So Ananias left and entered the house. Then he placed his hands on him and said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road you were traveling, has sent me so you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
At once something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he got up and was baptized.
And after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saulb was with the disciples in Damascus for some days.
