26 12 "Thus I journeyed to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests. 26 13 At midday, O king, I saw on the way a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining round me and those who journeyed with me. 26 14 And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, 'Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It hurts you to kick against the goads.' 26 15 And I said, 'Who are you, Lord?' And the Lord said, 'I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. 26 16 But rise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you to serve and bear witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, 26 17 delivering you from the people and from the Gentiles - to whom I send you 26 18 to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'
