All those hearing him continued to be amazed, and were saying, "Is this not he who in Jerusalem 3destroyed those who 4called on this name, and who had come here for the purpose of bringing them bound before the chief priests?"
But Saul kept increasing in strength and confounding the Jews who lived at Damascus by proving that this Jesus is the Christ.
When 5many days had elapsed, 6the Jews plotted together to do away with him,
but 7their plot became known to Saul. 8They were also watching the gates day and night so that they might put him to death;
but his disciples took him by night and let him down through an opening in the wall, lowering him in a large basket.
