10 In Damascus, there was a disciple named Ananias.
The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!”
“Yes, Lord,” he answered.
11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street
and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying.
12 In a vision, he has seen a man named Ananias come
and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”
13 “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports
about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem.
14 And he has come here with authority from the chief priests
to arrest all who call on your name.”
15 But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go!
This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name
before the Gentiles and their kings
and before the people of Israel.
