Acts 9:26-31

Saul in Jerusalem

26 And (A)when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But (B)Barnabas took him and (C)brought him to the apostles and declared to them (D)how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and (E)how at Damascus he had (F)preached boldly in the name of Jesus. 28 So he went (G)in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord. 29 And he spoke and disputed against (H)the Hellenists.[a] But (I)they were seeking to kill him. 30 And when (J)the brothers learned this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him off (K)to Tarsus.

31 So (L)the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And (M)walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, (N)it multiplied.
