Acts 1

1:1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that
 Jesus began both to do and teach,
1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he
 through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles
 whom he had chosen:
1:3 To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion, by
 many infallible proofs, being seen by them forty days, and
 speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
1:4 And being assembled with [them], commanded them that they
 should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of
 the Father, which, [saith he], ye have heard from me.
1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized
 with the Holy Spirit not many days hence.
1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him,
 saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom
 to Israel?
1:7 And he said to them, It is not for you to know the times or
 the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
1:8 But ye shall receive power after the Holy Spirit is come
 upon you: and ye shall be witnesses to me, both in Jerusalem,
 and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the uttermost part of
 the earth.
1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he
 was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
1:10 And while they looked steadfastly towards heaven as he went
 up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
1:11 Who also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up to
 heaven? this same Jesus who is taken from you into heaven,
 shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into
1:12 Then they returned to Jerusalem, from the mount called
 Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
1:13 And when they had come in, they went into an upper room,
 where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew,
 Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James [the son]
 of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas [the brother] of
1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and
 supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and
 with his brethren.
1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the
 disciples, and said (the number of the names together were
 about a hundred and twenty,)
1:16 Men, brethren, This scripture must needs have been
 fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit by the mouth of David spoke
 before concerning Judas, who was guide to them that took Jesus.
1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this
1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity;
 and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all
 his bowels gushed out.
1:19 And it was known to all the dwellers at Jerusalem; so that
 that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is
 to say, The field of blood.
1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation
 be desolate, and let no man dwell in it: and, His bishopric let
 another take.
1:21 Wherefore, of these men who accompanied us, all the time
 that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, to that same day that
 he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness
 with us of his resurrection.
1:23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was
 surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
1:24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, who knowest the
 hearts of all [men], show which of these two thou hast chosen,
1:25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship,
 from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his
 own place.
1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon
 Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
