As in the vision Saul saw (verse 12).

The Lord, even Jesus (o kurios, Ihsouv).
Undoubted use of kuriov as Lord and applied to Jesus.

Who appeared (o opteiv).
First aorist passive participle of oraw, was seen as in 26:16 and with the dative also (soi).

Thou camest (hrxou).
Imperfect indicative middle, "thou wert coming."

Be filled with the Holy Spirit (plhsteiv pneumatov agiou).
This enduement of special power he will need as an apostle (Hackett) and as promised by Jesus (1:8; Galatians 2:7).
