The blindness of Paul, as we have said before did not proceed from fear alone or from amazedness; but by this means was he admonished of his former blindness, that he might quite abandon that boldness and vain confidence wherewith he was puffed up. He boasted that he was taught at the feet of Gamaliel, and undoubtedly he thought very well of his great wittiness, but he was much pleased with his own perspicacity,” which was notwithstanding mere blindness.
