Saul of Tarsus, a Jewish scholar and zealous persecutor of Christians, who famously converted on the road to Damascus and became the apostle Paul (although the name Saul sticks until Acts 13:9, not counting Acts 22:7, 22:13 and Acts 26:14). The name Saul occurs 26 times in the New Testament, SEE FULL CONCORDANCE, 17 times in the Hellenized form: Σαυλος (Saulos), which always refers to Paul, and 9 times in the transliterated form: Σαουλ (Saoul), which refers once to king Saul, in Acts 13:21. I think that שאל, the root-verb שאל (sha'al), means to ask, inquire, borrow, beg. This verb occurs all over the Bible in ways you would expect. Most notably is the usage in plea for God's guidance or salvation (1 Samuel 23:2, Joshua 9:14). In these cases this verb occurs often without a subject: people "ask of the Lord" but what it is that they ask for lies in the story.
