Acts 1

These things but have been written, that you may believe, that Jesus is the Anointed, the son of the God, and that believing life you may have in the name of him.\1The indeed first account I made concerning all things, O Theophilus, which began the Jesus to do and also to teach, 2even to which day, having given charge to the apostles, through spirit holy whom he chose, he was taken up. 3To whom also he presented himself living after the to suffer him, in many clear proofs, through days forty being seen by them, and saying the things concerning the kingdom of the God. 4And assembling them he command them, from Jerusalem not to depart, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which you heard from me; 5that John indeed dipped in water, you but shall be dipped in spirit holy, not after many these days. 6They indeed therefore having come together, asked him; saying: O lord, if in the time this thou restorest the kingdom to the Israel? 7He said and to them: Not for you it is to know times or seasons, which the Father placed in the own authority. 8But you shall receive power having come the holy spirit upon you; and you shall be to me witnesses in both Jerusalem, and in all the Judea and in Samaria, and even to farthest part of the land. 9And these things having said, beholding of them he was lifted up; and a cloud withdrew him from the eyes of them. 10And as fixedly gazing they were into the heaven, going away of him, and lo, men two were standing by them in raiment white, 11they and said: Men of Galilee, why stand you looking into the heaven? this the Jesus, he being taken up from you into the heaven, thus will come, which manner you saw him going into the heaven. 12Then they returned into Jerusalem from a mountain that being called of olive-trees, which is near Jerusalem, a sabbath being distant journey. 13And when they came into, they went up into the upper room, where were remaining, the, both Peter and James, and John and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alpheus also Simon the zealot and Judas of James. 14These all were being constantly engaged with one mind in the prayer, with women, and Mary the mother of the Jesus, and with the brothers of him. 15And in the days these having stood up Peter in middle of the disciples, he said: (was and a crowd of names, in the same about a hundred twenty;) 16Men brethren, it was necessary to be fulfilled the writing this, which spoke before the spirit the holy through mouth of David, about Judas that having become a guide to those having seized the Jesus; 17because having been numbered he was among us, and obtained the lot of the service this. 18This indeed therefore bought a field out of a reward of the wickedness; and head-foremost having fallen, he burst in middle, and were poured out all the bowels of him; 19and known became to all those dwelling in Jerusalem, so as to be called the field that in the own language of them, Aceldama, this is, a field of blood. 20It is written for in book of psalms: Let be the dwelling of him desolate, and not let be the dwelling in her; and, The charge of him let take another. 21It is necessary therefore of those having associated with us men in all time, in which went in and went out among us the Lord Jesus, 22beginning from the dipping of John to the day which he was taken up from us, a witness of the resurrection of him to become with us one of these. 23And they set forth two, Joseph that being call Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24And praying they said: Thou, O Lord, heart-knower of all, show which thou didst select out of these the two one, 25to take the lot of the service this and apostleship, from which stepped aside Judas, to go into the place the own. 26And they gave lots of them; and fell the lot on Matthias, and he was counted with the eleven apostles.
