At about that same time he climbed a mountain to pray. He was there all night in prayer before God.
The next day he summoned his disciples; from them he selected twelve he designated as apostles:
Simon, whom he named Peter, Andrew, his brother, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
Matthew, Thomas, James, son of Alphaeus, Simon, called the Zealot,
Judas, son of James, Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
