Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:4-6.


Acts 9:6

_ _ And he, trembling and astonished, said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said — (The most ancient manuscripts and versions of the New Testament lack all these words here [including the last clause of Acts 9:5]; but they occur in Acts 26:14 and Acts 22:10, from which they appear to have been inserted here). The question, “What shall I do, Lord?” or, “Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?” indicates a state of mind singularly interesting (see on Acts 2:37). Its elements seem to be these: (1) Resistless conviction that “Jesus whom he persecuted,” now speaking to him, was “Christ the Lord.” (See on Galatians 1:15, Galatians 1:16). (2) As a consequence of this, that not only all his religious views, but his whole religious character, had been an entire mistake; that he was up to that moment fundamentally and wholly wrong. (3) That though his whole future was now a blank, he had absolute confidence in Him who had so tenderly arrested him in his blind career, and was ready both to take in all His teaching and to carry out all His directions. (For more, see on Acts 9:9).

_ _ Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee, etc. — See on Acts 8:26-28.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 9:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 9:6

It shall be told thee — So God himself sends Saul to be taught by a man, as the angel does Cornelius, Acts 10:5. Admirable condescension! that the Lord deals with us by men, like ourselves.
