b. Confirmed through Ananias
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.
