Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:10-16.


Acts 9:11

_ _ go into the street ... called Straight — There is still a street of this name in Damascus, about half a mile in length, running from east to west through the city [Maundrell].

_ _ and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus — There is something touching in the minuteness of these directions. Tarsus was the capital of the province of Cilicia, lying along the northeast coast of the Mediterranean. It was situated on the river Cydnus, was a “large and populous city” (says Xenophon, and see Acts 21:39), and under the Romans had the privilege of self-government.

_ _ behold, he prayeth — “breathing out” no longer “threatenings and slaughter,” but struggling desires after light and life in the Persecuted One. Beautiful note of encouragement as to the frame in which Ananias would find the persecutor.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:10-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 9:11

Behold he is praying — He was shown thus to Ananias.
