1 But aSaul, still breathing threatening and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
3 And as he went, he adrew near to Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.
5 And he said, Who are You, 1Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, whom you persecute.
7 And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, ahearing the voice but seeing no one.
8 And Saul rose from the ground; and though his eyes were open, he could see 1nothing. And they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus.
9 And he was three days without seeing, and he neither ate nor drank.
13 But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard from many concerning this man, how many evil things he has done to Your asaints in Jerusalem;
16 For I will show him how amany things he must suffer on behalf of My name.
17 And aAnanias went away and entered into the house; and 1blaying his hands on him, he said, Saul, brother, the Lord has sent me -- Jesus, who appeared to you on the road on which you were coming -- so that you may creceive your sight and be 2filled with the Holy Spirit.
19 And once he had taken food, he was strengthened. And he was with the disciples in aDamascus for some days.
21 And all who heard him were amazed and said, Is this not the one who aravaged those who bcall upon this name in Jerusalem and came here for this, that he might bring them bound before the chief priests?
23 And as a considerable number of days were being fulfilled, the Jews took counsel together to ado away with him;
26 And when he arrived in aJerusalem, he tried to join himself to the disciples; yet all feared him, not believing that he was a disciple.
27 But aBarnabas took hold of him and bled him to the apostles, and he related to them how Saul had cseen the Lord on the road, and that He had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken dboldly in the name of Jesus.
28 And he was with them, agoing in and going out in Jerusalem, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord.
31 So then the 1achurch throughout the whole of bJudea and Galilee and Samaria had 2peace, 3being built up; and going on in the 4cfear of the Lord and in the 5comfort of the Holy Spirit, it was dmultiplied.
33 And he found there a certain man named Aeneas, who for eight years had been lying on a mat, for he was aparalyzed.
38 Now because Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples heard that Peter was 1there, and they sent two men to him, entreating him, Do not delay to come through to us.
39 And Peter rose up and went with them. When he arrived, they led him up into the upper room. And all the awidows stood by him, weeping and showing him 1tunics and garments, all of which Dorcas had made while she was with them.
41 And giving her his hand, he raised her up. And when he had called the saints and the widows, he apresented her alive.
42 And it became known throughout all of Joppa and many abelieved on the Lord.
43 And he remained a considerable number of days in Joppa with a certain Simon, a atanner.
5 And now send men to Joppa and send for a certain Simon, who is surnamed Peter;
6 This man is lodging with a certain Simon, a atanner, whose house is by the sea.
7 And when the angel who was speaking to him went away, he called two of his household servants and a devout soldier of those who waited on him;
8 And relating all things to them, he sent them to Joppa.
12 In which were all the four-footed 1animals and reptiles of the earth and birds of heaven.
13 And a voice came to him: Rise up, Peter; slay and 1eat!
16 And this occurred three times; and immediately the vessel was taken up into heaven.
17 Now as Peter was utterly perplexed in himself as to what the 1avision which he had seen might be, behold, the men who were sent by Cornelius, having made diligent inquiry for Simon's house, stood at the gate.
18 And they called out and inquired whether Simon, who is surnamed Peter, was lodging there.
19 And while Peter was pondering over the vision, the aSpirit said to him, Behold, there are three men seeking you.
20 But rise up, go down and go with them, doubting nothing, because 1I have sent them.
21 And Peter went down to the men and said, Behold, I am he whom you seek; what is the cause for which you have come?
22 And they said, Cornelius, a centurion, a righteous man and one who afears God and is bwell attested to by the whole nation of the Jews, was divinely instructed by a choly angel to send for you to come to his house and hear dwords from you.
24 And on the next day they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius was awaiting them, having called together his relatives and intimate friends.
25 And when Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and afalling at his feet, worshipped him.
26 But Peter raised him up, saying, Rise up; I myself am also a aman.
27 And as he talked with him, he entered and found many who had come together.
28 And he said to them, You understand that it is unlawful for a man who is a Jew to join himself to or come near one of aanother race; yet God has shown me that I should not call any 1man bcommon or unclean.
29 Hence, even without objection I came when I had been sent for. I ask therefore, For what reason have you sent for me?
30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago to this hour I was praying at the ninth hour in my house, and behold, a man stood before me ain bright clothing,
32 Send therefore to Joppa and call for Simon, who is surnamed Peter; this man is lodging in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea.
33 Therefore I sent men at once to you, and you have done nobly in coming. Now therefore we all are present before God to hear all the things that have been commanded to you by the Lord.
34 And opening his mouth, Peter said, In truth I perceive that God is not a arespecter of persons,
38 Jesus, the One from aNazareth, how God banointed Him with the Holy cSpirit and with dpower, who went about doing good and healing all those who were being eoppressed by the devil, for God was fwith Him.
