1 G435 Men, G80 brethren, G2532 and G3962 fathers, G191 hear G1473 my G3588 G4314 [2to G1473 3you G3568 4now G627 1defense]!
2 G191 And hearing G1161 G3754 that G3588 in the G* Hebrew G1258 dialect G4377 he called out to G1473 them, G3123 the more G3930 they made G2271 rest.
3 G2532 And G5346 he says, G1473 I G3303 indeed G1510.2.1 am G435 a man, G* a Jew, G1080 being born G1722 in G* Tarsus G3588 G* of Cilicia, G397 but being reared G1161 G1722 in G3588 G4172 this city G3778 G3844 by G3588 the G4228 feet G* of Gamaliel, G3811 being instructed G2596 according to G195 the exactness G3588 of the G3971 paternal G3551 law, G2207 [2zealous G5224 1being] G3588 G2316 of God, G2531 as G3956 all G1473 you G1510.2.5 are G4594 today;
4 G3739 one who G3778 [2this G3588 G3598 3way G1377 1persecuted] G891 unto G2288 death, G1195 binding G2532 and G3860 delivering up G1519 unto G5438 prisons G435 both men G5037 G2532 and G1135 women;
5 G5613 as G2532 also G3588 the G749 chief priest G3140 bears witness G1473 to me, G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G4244 council of elders; G3844 by G3739 whom G2532 also G1992 letters G1209 having received, G4314 [2to G3588 3the G80 4brethren G1519 5in G* 6Damascus G4198 1I went], G71 for leading G2532 also G3588 the ones G1566 at that place G1510.6 being G1210 bound G1519 unto G* Jerusalem, G2443 that G5097 they should be punished.
6 G1096 And it happened G1161 G1473 to me G4198 going G2532 and G1448 approaching G3588 G* to Damascus G4012 around G3314 midday, G1810 suddenly G1537 from out of G3588 the G3772 heaven G4015 flashed about G5457 a light, G2425 a fit amount G4012 around G1473 me.
7 G4098 And I fell G5037 G1519 onto G3588 the G1475 ground, G2532 and G191 I heard G5456 a voice G3004 saying G1473 to me, G* Saul, G* Saul, G5100 why G1473 do you persecute me? G1377
8 G1473 And I G1161 G611 answered, G5100 Who G1510.2.2 are you, G2962 O Lord? G2036 And he said G5037 G4314 to G1473 me, G1473 I G1510.2.1 am G* Jesus G3588 the G* Nazarene, G3739 whom G1473 you G1377 persecute.
9 G3588 And the ones G1161 G4862 [2with G1473 3me G1510.6 1being] G3588 G3303 indeed G5457 [2a light G2300 1saw], G2532 and G1719 [2thrown into fear G1096 1became]; G3588 [4the G1161 1but G5456 5voice G3756 2they did not G191 3hear] G3588 of the one G2980 speaking G1473 to me.
10 G2036 And I said, G1161 G5100 What G4160 shall I do, G2962 O Lord? G3588 G1161 And G2962 the Lord G2036 said G4314 to G1473 me, G450 Having risen up, G4198 go G1519 unto G* Damascus! G2546 and there G1473 it shall be told to you G2980 G4012 concerning G3956 all the things G3739 which G5021 is arranged G1473 for you G4160 to do.
11 G5613 And as G1161 G3756 I did not G1689 look at anything G575 because of G3588 the G1391 glory G3588 G5457 of that light, G1565 G5496 being led by the hand G5259 by G3588 the ones G4895 being with G1473 me, G2064 I came G1519 unto G* Damascus.
12 G* [3Ananias G1161 1And G5100 2a certain], G435 [2man G2152 1a pious] G2596 according to G3588 the G3551 law, G3140 borne witness to G5259 by G3956 all G3588 the G2730 [2dwelling G1722 3in G* 4Damascus G* 1Jews],
13 G2064 having come G4314 to G1473 me, G2532 and G2186 having stood by, G2036 said G1473 to me, G* O brother Saul, G80 G308 look up! G2504 And I G1473 the same G3588 G5610 hour G308 looked up G1519 on G1473 him.
14 G3588 G1161 And G2036 he said, G3588 The G2316 God G3588 G3962 of our fathers G1473 G4400 handpicked G1473 you G1097 to know G3588 G2307 his will, G1473 G2532 and G1492 to behold G3588 the G1342 just one, G2532 and G191 to hear G5456 the voice G1537 from out of G3588 G4750 his mouth; G1473
15 G3754 for G1510.8.2 you will be G3144 a witness G1473 to him G4314 to G3956 all G444 men G3739 of what G3708 you have seen G2532 and G191 heard.
16 G2532 And G3568 now, G5100 why G3195 be about to? G450 Having arisen, G907 be immersed G2532 and G628 wash off G3588 G266 your sins, G1473 G1941 calling upon G3588 the G3686 name G3588 of the G2962 Lord.
17 G1096 And it happened G1161 G1473 to me G5290 in returning G1519 unto G* Jerusalem, G2532 and G4336 my praying G1473 G1722 in G3588 the G2413 temple, G1096 there took place G1473 in me G1722 G1611 a change of state,
18 G2532 and G1492 beholding G1473 him G3004 saying G1473 to me, G4692 Hasten G2532 and G1831 go forth G1722 G5034 quickly G1537 from G* Jerusalem! G1360 because G3756 they will not G3858 welcome G1473 your G3588 G3141 testimony G4012 concerning G1473 me.
19 G2504 And I G2036 said, G2962 O Lord, G1473 they G1987 know G3754 that G1473 I G1510.7.1 was G5439 casting into prison G2532 and G1194 flaying G2596 against G3588 the G4864 synagogues G3588 of the ones G4100 believing G1909 upon G1473 you.
20 G2532 And G3753 when G1632 [5was poured out G3588 1the G129 2blood G* 3of Stephen G3588 G3144 4your witness], G1473 G2532 also G1473 I myself G1510.7.1 was G2186 standing by, G2532 and G4909 assenting with G3588 G336 his removal, G1473 G5442 guarding G3588 the G2440 garments G3588 of the ones G337 doing away with G1473 him.
21 G2532 And G2036 he said G4314 to G1473 me, G4198 Go! G3754 for G1473 I G1519 [3unto G1484 4nations G3112 5far off G1821 1shall send G1473 2you]!
22 G191 And they heard G1161 G1473 him G891 until G3778 this G3588 G3056 word, G2532 and G1869 they lifted up G3588 G5456 their voice, G1473 G3004 saying, G142 Take G575 [2from G3588 3the G1093 4earth G3588 G5108 1such a one]! G3756 for it is not G1063 G2520 fit G1473 for him G2198 to live.
23 G2896 [3crying out G1161 1And G1473 2of their], G2532 and G4495 tossing G3588 their G2440 garments, G2532 and G2868 [2dust G906 1throwing] G1519 into G3588 the G109 air,
24 G2753 [3bid G1473 4him G3588 1the G5506 2commander] G71 to be led G1519 unto G3588 the G3925 camp, G2036 having said, G3148 [3with whips G426 1Investigate G1473 2him], G2443 that G1921 we should know G1223 for G3739 what G156 reason G3779 thus G2019 they sounded out G1473 against him.
25 G5613 And as G1161 G4385 they stretched him forward G3588 with the G2438 straps, G2036 [2said G4314 3to G3588 4the G2476 6standing G1543 5centurion G3588 G* 1Paul], G1487 Is it G444 [4a Roman man G* G2532 5and G178 6uncondemned G1832 1allowed G1473 2for you G3147 3to crack the whip on]?
26 G191 And hearing, G1161 G3588 the G1543 centurion G4334 came forward G518 to report G3588 to the G5506 commander, G3004 saying, G3708 Look to G5100 what G3195 you are about G4160 to do! G3588 G1063 for G444 this man G3778 G* is a Roman. G1510.2.3
27 G4334 And having come forward, G1161 G3588 the G5506 commander G2036 said G1473 to him, G3004 Tell G1473 me G1487 if G1473 you G* are a Roman? G1510.2.2 G3588 G1161 And G5346 he said, G3483 Yes.
28 G611 [4responded G5037 1And G3588 2the G5506 3commander], G1473 I G4183 by a great G2774 sum G3588 G4174 [2this citizenship G3778 G2932 1acquired]. G3588 G1161 And G* Paul G5346 said, G1473 But I G1161 G2532 even G1080 was born to it .
29 G2112 Then immediately G3767 G868 [4abstained G575 5from G1473 6him G3588 1the ones G3195 2being about G1473 3to investigate him]. G426 G2532 And G3588 the G5506 commander G1161 also G5399 feared, G1921 realizing G3754 that G* he is a Roman, G1510.2.3 G2532 and G3754 that G1510.7.3 he was G1473 tied up by him. G1210
30 G3588 And the G1161 G1887 next day, G1014 wanting G1097 to know G3588 G804 safely G3588 G5100 why he is charged G2723 G3844 by G3588 the G* Jews, G3089 he loosed G1473 him G575 from G3588 the G1199 bonds, G2532 and G2753 bid G2064 [3to come G3588 1the G749 2chief priests] G2532 and G3650 all G3588 G4892 their sanhedrin; G1473 G2532 and G2609 leading down G3588 G* Paul, G2476 he stood him G1519 among G1473 them.
