扫罗仍然向主的门徒口吐威吓凶杀的话,去见大祭司, 求文书给大马士革的各会堂,若是找着信奉这道的人,无论男女,都准他捆绑带到耶路撒冷 扫罗行路,将到大马士革,忽然从天上发光,四面照着他。 他就仆倒在地,听见有声音对他说:扫罗扫罗,你为什么逼迫我?” 他说:“主啊,你是谁?”主说:“我就是你所逼迫的耶稣。 起来!进城去,你所当做的事,必有人告诉你。” 同行的人站在那里,说不出话来,听见声音,却看不见人。 扫罗从地上起来,睁开眼睛,竟不能看见什么。有人拉他的手,领他进了大马士革 三日不能看见,也不吃也不喝。

10 当下,在大马士革有一个门徒,名叫亚拿尼亚。主在异象中对他说:亚拿尼亚!”他说:“主,我在这里。” 11 主对他说:“起来!往直街去,在犹大的家里访问一个大数人,名叫扫罗。他正祷告, 12 又看见了一个人,名叫亚拿尼亚,进来按手在他身上,叫他能看见。” 13 亚拿尼亚回答说:“主啊,我听见许多人说这人怎样在耶路撒冷多多苦害你的圣徒, 14 并且他在这里有从祭司长得来的权柄,捆绑一切求告你名的人。” 15 主对亚拿尼亚说:“你只管去!他是我所拣选的器皿,要在外邦人和君王并以色列人面前宣扬我的名。 16 我也要指示他,为我的名必须受许多的苦难。”


17 亚拿尼亚就去了,进入那家,把手按在扫罗身上,说:“兄弟扫罗,在你来的路上向你显现的主,就是耶稣,打发我来叫你能看见,又被圣灵充满。” 18 扫罗的眼睛上好像有鳞立刻掉下来,他就能看见。于是起来受了洗, 19 吃过饭就健壮了。


扫罗大马士革的门徒同住了些日子, 20 就在各会堂里宣传耶稣,说他是神的儿子。 21 凡听见的人都惊奇,说:“在耶路撒冷残害求告这名的,不是这人吗?并且他到这里来,特要捆绑他们,带到祭司长那里!” 22 扫罗越发有能力,驳倒住大马士革犹太人,证明耶稣是基督。

Saul’s Conversion(A)

Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples.(B) He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus,(C) so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way,(D) whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.(E) He fell to the ground and heard a voice(F) say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”(G)

The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound(H) but did not see anyone.(I) Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing.(J) So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision,(K) “Ananias!”

“Yes, Lord,” he answered.

11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus(L) named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on(M) him to restore his sight.”

13 “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people(N) in Jerusalem.(O) 14 And he has come here with authority from the chief priests(P) to arrest all who call on your name.”(Q)

15 But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument(R) to proclaim my name to the Gentiles(S) and their kings(T) and to the people of Israel. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”(U)

17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on(V) Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”(W) 18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized,(X) 19 and after taking some food, he regained his strength.

Saul in Damascus and Jerusalem

Saul spent several days with the disciples(Y) in Damascus.(Z) 20 At once he began to preach in the synagogues(AA) that Jesus is the Son of God.(AB) 21 All those who heard him were astonished and asked, “Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name?(AC) And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?”(AD) 22 Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Messiah.(AE)
