Acts 1:12-17, 21-26

12

Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey.

13

And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James.

14

These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

15

And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples (altogether the number of names was about a hundred and twenty), and said,

16

Men and brethren, this Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus;

17

for he was numbered with us and obtained a part in this ministry.

21

Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,

22

beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.

23

And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.

24

And they prayed and said, "You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen

25

to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.

26

And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
