Acts 9:7-9 King James Version (KJV)
7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.
8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.
9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

Acts 9:7-9 Amplified Bible (AMP)

7 The men who were traveling with him [were terrified and] stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one.8 Saul got up from the ground, but though his eyes were open, he could see nothing; so they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was unable to see for three days, and he neither ate nor drank.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

7 They didnít see what Paul did because they were only meant to know at this point Paul started following Jesus, this was only meant to bring Paul into faith in Jesus but Paul I believe would later lead these men to Jesus because of his change on this road.

8 Paul was now blind he couldnít see, when we come into contact with Jesus we are changed Paulís blindness would be temporary but him changing by walking after Jesus would be permanent.

9 So Paul maybe fasting as a result of being blind but scripture does not say he fasted just says he went without food as though he just didnít eat because he was blind.
