8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
9 After He had said this, He was taken up as they were watching, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
10 While He was going, they were gazing into heaven, and suddenly two men in white clothes stood by them. 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them.
11 They said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up into heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you have seen Him going into heaven." 11 "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olive Grove, which is near Jerusalem-a Sabbath day's journey away. 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day's walk from the city.
13 When they arrived, they went to the room upstairs where they were staying: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas the son of James. 13 When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying.

14 All these were continually united in prayer, along with the women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and His brothers. 14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
15 During these days Peter stood up among the brothers-the number of people who were together was about 120-and said: 15 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty)
16 "Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled that the Holy Spirit through the mouth of David spoke in advance about Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus. 16 and said, "Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through the mouth of David concerning Judas, who served as guide for those who arrested Jesus--
17 For he was one of our number and was allotted a share in this ministry." 17 he was one of our number and shared in this ministry."
18 Now this man acquired a field with his unrighteous wages; and falling headfirst, he burst open in the middle, and all his insides spilled out. 18 (With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.
19 This became known to all the residents of Jerusalem, so that in their own language that field is called Hakeldama, that is, Field of Blood. 19 Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.)
20 "For it is written in the Book of Psalms: Let his dwelling become desolate; let no one live in it; and Let someone else take his position. 20 "For," said Peter, "it is written in the book of Psalms, " 'May his place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in it,' and, " 'May another take his place of leadership.'
21 "Therefore, from among the men who have accompanied us during the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us- 21 Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,

25 to take the place in this apostolic service that Judas left to go to his own place." 25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs."
26 Then they cast lots for them, and the lot fell to Matthias. So he was numbered with the 11 apostles. 26 Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.
