Acts 9:19-22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

19 And when he had taken meat, he was comforted. And he was by some days with the disciples, that were at Damascus.

20 And at once [And anon] he entered into the synagogues, and preached the Lord Jesus, for this is the Son of God.

21 And all men that heard him, wondered, and said, Whether this is not he that impugned in Jerusalem them that called to help this name? and hither he came for this thing [and hither for this thing he came], that he should lead them bound to the princes of priests?

22 But Saul much the more waxed strong, and confounded the Jews that dwelled at Damascus, and affirmed that this is Christ [affirming for this is Christ].

Acts 9:19-22 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

19 and took food, and was comforted.

Then Saul spent some days with the disciples who were at Damascus. 20 And straightaway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he was the Son of God. 21 All who heard him were amazed and said, Is this not the man that ravaged those who called on this name in Jerusalem, and came here intending to bring them as prisoners to the high priests?

  22 But Saul increased in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt at Damascus, affirming that Jesus was the very Christ.

Saul in Damascus and Jerusalem

Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus. 20 At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God. 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? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?” 22 Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Messiah.
