“And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee:”
King James Version (KJV)
22:19 And I said - It is not easy for a servant of Christ, who is himself deeply impressed with Divine truths, to imagine to what a degree men are capable of hardening their hearts against thee. He is often ready to think with Paul, It is impossible for any to resist such evidence. But experience makes him wiser and shows that wilful unbelief is proof against all truth and reason.
Ac 22:19 Lord, they know. He recalls the very words of his prayer to show his anxiety to labor with his own race.
