Acts 9:1 Acts 10:48

1 But aSaul, still breathing threatening and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest

2 And asked for aletters from him to Damascus for the bsynagogues, so that if he found any who were of the 1cWay, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

3 And as he went, he adrew near to Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.

4 And he fell on the ground and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting 1aMe?

5 And he said, Who are You, 1Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, whom you persecute.

6 But arise up and enter into the city, and it 1will be told to you bwhat you must do.

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.


10 And there was a certain disciple in Damascus named aAnanias; and the Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, bI am here, Lord.

11 And the Lord said to him, aRise up and 1go to the lane called Straight, and seek in the house of Judas a man from bTarsus named Saul; for behold, he is praying;

12 And he has seen in a avision a man named Ananias coming in and blaying his hands on him so that he may 1creceive his sight.

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;

14 And here he has aauthority from the chief priests to bind all who 1bcall upon Your name.

15 But the Lord said to him, Go, for this man is a 1chosen avessel to Me, to bear My bname before both the cGentiles and dkings and the sons of Israel;

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.

18 And immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he 1received his sight and rose up and was 2abaptized.

19 And once he had taken food, he was strengthened. And he was with the disciples in aDamascus for some days.


20 And immediately he proclaimed Jesus in the 1synagogues, that this One is the aSon of God.

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?

22 But Saul was all the more aempowered, and he bconfounded the Jews dwelling in Damascus by proving that this One is the cChrist.

23 And as a considerable number of days were being fulfilled, the Jews took counsel together to ado away with him;

24 But their aplot was made known to Saul. And they also bwatched the gates closely, both day and night, so that they might cdo away with him.

25 But his disciples took him by night and alet him down through the wall, blowering him in a basket.

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.

29 And he spoke and disputed with the aHellenists, but they attempted to bdo away with him.

30 But when the abrothers realized it, they brought him down to bCaesarea and sent him forth to cTarsus.


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.


32 Now as Peter was passing through all those parts, he came down also to the asaints dwelling at 1Lydda.

33 And he found there a certain man named Aeneas, who for eight years had been lying on a mat, for he was aparalyzed.

34 And Peter said to him, Aeneas, aJesus Christ heals you. bRise up and 1make up your own bed. And immediately he rose up.

35 And all those dwelling in Lydda and aSharon saw him; and they bturned to the Lord.


36 Now in aJoppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is 1Dorcas); this woman was full of bgood works and alms which she did.

37 And in those days she became ill and died; and they bathed 1her body and laid it in an aupper room.

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.

40 And Peter put them all aoutside; and bkneeling down, he cprayed; and he turned to the body and said, Tabitha, drise up. And she opened her eyes; and when she saw Peter, she sat up.

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.


CHAPTER 10

1 Now there was in aCaesarea a certain man named Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the 1Italian 2cohort,

2 1aDevout and one who bfeared God with all his household, giving many alms to the people and beseeching God continually.

3 He saw clearly in a 1avision around the 2bninth hour of the day an cangel of God coming in to him and saying to him, Cornelius.

4 And he looked intently at him and became terrified and said, What is it, Lord? And he said to him, Your aprayers and your alms have ascended as a 1bmemorial before God.

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.


9 And on the next day as they were journeying and drawing near to the city, Peter went up on the ahousetop to 1bpray around the 2sixth hour.

10 And he became very 1hungry and wanted to 2eat. And while they were preparing, a 3atrance came upon him;

11 And he beheld 1heaven aopened, and a certain 2vessel like a great sheet descending, being let down by four corners onto the earth,

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!

14 But Peter said, By no means, Lord, for I have 1anever eaten anything bcommon and cunclean.

15 And a voice came to him again a second time: The 1things that God has acleansed, do not make common.

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.

23 So he called them in and lodged them. And on the next day he rose up and went away with them; and 1asome of the brothers from Joppa accompanied him.

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,

31 And he said, Cornelius, your prayer has been aheard and your alms have been bremembered before God.

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,

35 But in aevery nation he who bfears Him and works crighteousness is 1acceptable to Him.

36 The word which He sent to the sons of Israel in announcing the gospel of apeace through Jesus Christ (this One is bLord of 1all)

37 You yourselves know, 1the word which has been spoken throughout the whole of Judea, beginning from aGalilee after the baptism which John proclaimed:

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.

39 And we are awitnesses of all the things which He did, both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem; whom also they bdid away with by hanging Him on a ctree.

40 This One, 1God araised on the bthird day; and He has made Him 2cmanifest,

41 Not to all the people, but to awitnesses appointed beforehand by God, to us, ones who bate and drank with Him after 1He rose from the dead.

42 And He has acharged us to proclaim to the people and solemnly btestify that this is the One who was designated by God to be the 1cJudge of the dliving and the dead.

43 To this One all the aprophets testify that through His bname everyone who cbelieves into Him will receive 1dforgiveness of sins.


44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy aSpirit 1fell upon all those 2hearing the word.

45 And the believers who were of the acircumcision, bas many as had accompanied Peter, were amazed, because on the cGentiles also the 1dgift of the Holy Spirit had been 2poured out;

46 For they heard them 1aspeaking in tongues and 2magnifying God. Then Peter answered,


47 Can anyone forbid the water so that these would not be abaptized, who have received the Holy Spirit even 1bas we?

48 And he charged them to be 1baptized 2in the 3name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days.
