Acts 1 ©
Christ after his resurrection, having given instructions to his apostles, and commanded them to wait in Jerusalem the coming of the Holy Ghost, ascendeth into heaven in their sight. Two angels warn them to depart, and to look for his second coming: they return, and give themselves unto prayer. Peter exhorting to fill up the place of the traitor Judas, Matthias is chosen by lot to be an apostle.
Until the day in which he cwas taken up, after that he dthrough the Holy *Ghost ehad given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
fTo whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them gforty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the hkingdom of God:
mBut ye shall receive 2power, after that the Holy *Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be nwitnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in oSamaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Which also said, Ye smen of Galilee, twhy stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, ushall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
And when they were come in, they went up into an xupper room, where abode both yPeter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.
And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their *proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, iThe field of blood.
And they appointed two, Joseph called nBarsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
