Acts 1

DBY 1 I composed the first discourse, O Theophilus, concerning all things which Jesus began both to do and to teach, NIV 1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach DBY 2 until that day in which, having by the Holy Spirit charged the apostles whom he had chosen, he was taken up; NIV 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. DBY 3 to whom also he presented himself living, after he had suffered, with many proofs; being seen by them during forty days, and speaking of the things which concern the kingdom of God; NIV 3 After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. DBY 4 and, being assembled with [them], commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to await the promise of the Father, which [said he] ye have heard of me. NIV 4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. DBY 5 For John indeed baptised with water, but *ye* shall be baptised with the Holy Spirit after now not many days. NIV 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit." DBY 6 They therefore, being come together, asked him saying, Lord, is it at this time that thou restorest the kingdom to Israel? NIV 6 So when they met together, they asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" DBY 7 And he said to them, It is not yours to know times or seasons, which the Father has placed in his own authority; NIV 7 He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. DBY 8 but ye will receive power, the Holy Spirit having come upon you, and ye shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. NIV 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." DBY 9 And having said these things he was taken up, they beholding [him], and a cloud received him out of their sight. NIV 9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. DBY 10 And as they were gazing into heaven, as he was going, behold, also two men stood by them in white clothing, NIV 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. DBY 11 who also said, Men of Galilee, why do ye stand looking into heaven? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven, shall thus come in the manner in which ye have beheld him going into heaven. NIV 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." DBY 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called [the mount] of Olives, which is near Jerusalem, a sabbath-day's journey off. NIV 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day's walk from the city. DBY 13 And when they were come into [the city], they went up to the upper chamber, where were staying both Peter, and John, and James, and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James [son] of Alphaeus, and Simon the zealot, and Jude [the brother] of James. NIV 13 When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. DBY 14 These gave themselves all with one accord to continual prayer, with [several] women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. NIV 14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. DBY 15 And in those days Peter, standing up in the midst of the brethren, said, (the crowd of names [who were] together [was] about a hundred and twenty,) NIV 15 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty) DBY 16 Brethren, it was necessary that the scripture should have been fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before, by the mouth of David, concerning Judas, who became guide to those who took Jesus; NIV 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-- DBY 17 for he was numbered amongst us, and had received a part in this service. NIV 17 he was one of our number and shared in this ministry." DBY 18 (This [man] then indeed got a field with [the] reward of iniquity, and, having fallen down headlong, burst in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. NIV 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. DBY 19 And it was known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that that field was called in their own dialect Aceldama; that is, field of blood.) NIV 19 Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) DBY 20 For it is written in [the] book of Psalms, Let his homestead become desolate, and let there be no dweller in it; and, Let another take his overseership. NIV 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.' DBY 21 It is necessary therefore, that of the men who have assembled with us all [the] time in which the Lord Jesus came in and went out among us, NIV 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, DBY 22 beginning from the baptism of John until the day in which he was taken up from us, one of these should be a witness with us of his resurrection. NIV 22 beginning from John's baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection." DBY 23 And they appointed two, Joseph, who was called Barsabas, who had been surnamed Justus, and Matthias. NIV 23 So they proposed two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. DBY 24 And they prayed, and said, Thou Lord, knower of the hearts of all, shew which one of these two thou hast chosen, NIV 24 Then they prayed, "Lord, you know everyone's heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen DBY 25 to receive the lot of this service and apostleship, from which Judas transgressing fell to go to his own place. NIV 25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs." DBY 26 And they gave lots on them, and the lot fell on Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles. NIV 26 Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.
