Ananias Sent to Saul

10 Now there was a certain disciple in Damascus {named}a Ananias, and the Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias!" And he said, "Behold, [here] I [am], Lord!" 11 And the Lord [said] to him, "Get up, go to the street called 'Straight' and in the house of Judas look for {a man named Saul from Tarsus}.b For behold, he is praying, 12 and he has seen in a vision a man {named}c Ananias coming in and placing handsd on him so that he may regain [his] sight." 13 But Ananias replied, "Lord, I have heard from many [people] about this man, how much harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem, 14 and here he has authority from the chief priests to tie upe all who call upon your name!" 15 But the Lord said to him, "Go, because this man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before Gentilesf and kings and the sons of Israel. 16 For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name." 17 So Ananias departed and entered into the house, and placing [his]g hands on him, he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road by which you came, has sent me so that you may regain [your] sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." 18 And immediately [something] like scales fell from his eyes and he regained [his] sight and got up [and]h was baptized, 19 and [after]i taking food, he regained his strength. And he was with the disciples in Damascus several days.
