22 (A)“Brothers and fathers, hear the defense that I now make before you.”

(I)I persecuted (J)this Way (K)to the death, binding and delivering to prison both men and women, as (L)the high priest and (M)the whole council of elders can bear me witness. From them I received letters to (N)the brothers, and I journeyed toward Damascus to take those also who were there and bring them in bonds to Jerusalem to be punished.
