1And Sha’ul [desired], yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord - Kurios, went unto the High Priest,
2And desired of him letters to Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver] to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
3And as he journeyed, he came near Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver]: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
4And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Sha’ul [desired], Sha’ul [desired], why persecute youi me?
5And he said, Who are youi, Lord - Kurios? And the Lord - Kurios said, I am Yeshua [God is Salvation] whom youi persecute: [it is] hard for youi to kick against the pricks.
6And he trembling and astonished said, Lord - Kurios, what will youi have me to do? And the Lord - Kurios [said] unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told youi what youi must do.
7And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.
8And Sha’ul [desired] arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought [him] into Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver].
9And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
10And there was a certain disciple at Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver], named Ananias; and to him said the Lord - Kurios in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I [am here], Lord - Kurios.
11And the Lord - Kurios [said] unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Y’hudah [praised] for [one] called Sha’ul [desired], of Tarsus [a flat basket]: for, behold, he prays,
12And has seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting [his] hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
13Then Ananias answered, Lord - Kurios, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he has done to youri saints at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace]:
14And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on youri name.
15But the Lord - Kurios said unto him, Go youri way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Goyim [Gentiles], and kings, and the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God]:
16For I will show him how great things he must suffer (allow, to let, permit) for my name’s sake.
17And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Sha’ul [desired], the Lord - Kurios, [even] Yeshua [God is Salvation], that appeared unto youi in the way as youi came, has sent me, that youi might receive youri sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh].
18And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
19And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Sha’ul [desired] certain days with the disciples which were at the time in Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver].
20And immediately he preached Moshiach [Messiah] in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God-The Father.
21But all that heard [him] were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], and came here for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
22But Sha’ul [desired] increased the more in strength, and confounded the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] which dwelt at Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver], proving that this is very Moshiach [Messiah].
23And after that many days were fulfilled, the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] took counsel to kill him:
24But their laying await was known of Sha’ul [desired]. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
25Then the disciples took him by night, and let [him] down by the wall in a basket.
26And when Sha’ul [desired] was come to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], he assayed (attempted; tested; analyzed) to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
27But Bar-Nabba [son of rest] took him, and brought [him] to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord - Kurios in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver] in the name of Yeshua [God is Salvation].
28And he was with them coming in and going out at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
29And he spoke boldly in the name of the Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation], and disputed against the Grecians [Greek [unstable: the miry one]-speaking Jewish people]: but they went about to slay him.
30 [Which] when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesarea [severed], and sent him forth to Tarsus [a flat basket].
31Then had the churches rest throughout all Y’hudah [praised] and Galil [circuit, district] and Shomron [watch mountain], and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord - Kurios, and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh], were multiplied.
32And it came to pass, as Kefa [pebble] passed throughout all [quarters], he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lud [strife].
33And there he found a certain man named Aeneas [laudable], which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy.
34And Kefa [pebble] said unto him, Aeneas [laudable], Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] makes youi whole: arise, and make youri bed. And he arose immediately.
35And all that dwelt at Lud [strife] and Sharon [plain or level] saw him, and turned to the Lord - Kurios.
36Now there was at Yafo [beautiful] a certain disciple named Tavita [gazelle], which by interpretation is called Dorcas [gazelle]: this woman was full of good works and charity which she did.
37And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid [her] in an upper chamber.
38And forasmuch as Lud [strife] was near to Yafo [beautiful], and the disciples had heard that Kefa [pebble] was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring [him] that he would not delay to come to them.
39Then Kefa [pebble] arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas [gazelle] made, while she was with them.
40But Kefa [pebble] put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning [him] to the body said, Tavita [gazelle], arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Kefa [pebble], she sat up.
41And he gave her [his] hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.
42And it was known throughout all Yafo [beautiful]; and many believed in the Lord - Kurios.
43And it came to pass, that he tarried many days in Yafo [beautiful] with one Shim’on [he has heard] a tanner.
