“As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:3 Saul made havoc of the Church - Like some furious beast of prey. So the Greek word properly signifies. Men and women - Regarding neither age nor sex.
Ac 8:3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church. This mad violence he often recalled and mentioned while serving Christ. See Ac 22:4 26:10 1Co 15:9 Ga 1:13 Php 3:6 1Ti 1:13. Entering into every house. Where he supposed disciples could be found. Haling. Dragging with violence. As we learn from Paul's statements elsewhere, the saints were not only committed to prison, but scourged in the synagogues and persecuted unto death.
