Acts 9:12

_ _ And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias, etc. — Thus, as in the case of Cornelius and Peter afterwards, there was a mutual preparation of each for each. But we have no account of the vision which Saul had of Ananias coming unto him and putting his hands upon him for the restoration of his sight, save this interesting allusion to it in the vision which Ananias himself had.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:10-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
