|Acts 9:11-18 |
11 And the Lord said to him, "Arise and go to the street called Straight and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying there;
12 And he has seen in a vision of a man named Ananias coming and putting his hands on him so he might receive his sight."
13 Then Ananias answered, "Lord, I have heard from many people about this man, how much evil he has done to your saints in Jerusalem;
14 And here he has authority from the chief priests to arrest and chain all who call on your name."
15 But the Lord said to him, "Go on your way, for he is a chosen vessel to me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.
16 For I will show him what great sufferings he must endure for my name's sake."
17 So Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and as he laid his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you along the way as you journeyed, has sent me so that you might receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
18 And immediately [blindness] fell from his eyes as if it had been scales; and he received his sight immediately, and arose and was baptized.
