10 “I said, ‘What should I do, Lord?’

“The Lord told me, ‘Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told everything that you have been assigned to do.’

11 “Since I couldn’t see because of the brightness of the light,[a] I was led by the hand by those who were with me, and went into Damascus.(A) 12 Someone named Ananias, a devout man according to the law, who had a good reputation with all the Jews living there,(B) 13 came and stood by me and said, ‘Brother Saul, regain your sight.’ And in that very hour I looked up and saw him. 14 And he said, ‘The God of our ancestors has appointed(C) you to know his will, to see(D) the Righteous One,(E) and to hear the words from his mouth, 15 since you will be a witness for him to all people of what you have seen and heard.(F) 16 And now, why are you delaying? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins,(G) calling on his name.’(H)
