Saul’s Conversion on the Damascus Road

1 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2 [and]a asked for letters from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, both men and women, he could bring [them]b tied upc to Jerusalem. 3 Now as [he] proceeded, it happened that [when] he approached Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. 4 And falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?" 5 So he said, "Who are you, Lord?" And he [said], "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting! 6 But get up and enter into the city, and it will be told to you {what you must do}."d 7 (Now the men who were traveling together with him stood speechless, [because they]e heard the voice but saw no one.) 8 So Saul got up from the ground, but [although]f his eyes were open he could see nothing. And leading him by the hand, they brought [him] into Damascus. 9 And he was {unable to see}g [for] three days, and he did not eat or drink.
