Therefore from these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
beginning from the baptism of John until that same day that He was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of His resurrection."
And they appointed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
And they prayed and said, "Thou, Lord, who knowest the hearts of all men, show us which of these two Thou hast chosen,
that he may take part of this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place."
And they cast their lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
