1 G4413 The former G3056 treatise G4160 have I made, G2321 O Theophilus, G3956 of all G2424 that Jesus G756 began G5037 both G4160 to do G1321 and teach,
2 G891 Until G2250 the day G3739 in which G353 he was taken G1223 up, after that he through G40 the Holy G4151 Ghost G1781 had given commandments G652 to the apostles G3739 whom G1586 he had chosen:
3 G3739 To whom G2532 also G3936 he showed G1438 himself G2198 alive G3326 after G3958 his passion G4183 by many G5039 infallible proofs, G3700 being seen G5062 of them forty G2250 days, G3004 and speaking G4012 of the things pertaining G932 to the kingdom G2316 of God:
4 G4871 And, being assembled G4817 together G3853 with them, commanded G5562 them that they should not depart G2414 from Jerusalem, G4037 but wait G1860 for the promise G3962 of the Father, G3739 which, G191 said he, you have heard of me.
5 G2491 For John G3303 truly G907 baptized G5204 with water; G907 but you shall be baptized G40 with the Holy G4151 Ghost G4183 not many G2250 days G3326 hence. G5025
6 G3767 When they therefore G4905 were come G4905 together, G1905 they asked G3004 of him, saying, G2962 Lord, G1722 will you at G5129 this G5550 time G600 restore G600 again G932 the kingdom G2474 to Israel?
7 G2036 And he said G1097 to them, It is not for you to know G5550 the times G2228 or G2540 the seasons, G3739 which G3962 the Father G5087 has put G2398 in his own G1849 power.
8 G2983 But you shall receive G1411 power, G40 after that the Holy G4151 Ghost G1904 is come G3144 on you: and you shall be witnesses G5037 to me both G2419 in Jerusalem, G3956 and in all G2449 Judaea, G4540 and in Samaria, G2078 and to the uttermost G1093 part of the earth.
9 G2036 And when he had spoken G5023 these G991 things, while they beheld, G1869 he was taken G3507 up; and a cloud G5274 received G3788 him out of their sight.
10 G5613 And while G816 they looked G816 steadfastly G1519 toward G3772 heaven G4198 as he went G2400 up, behold, G1417 two G435 men G3936 stood G3022 by them in white G2066 apparel;
11 G3739 Which G2532 also G2036 said, G435 You men G1056 of Galilee, G5101 why G2476 stand G1689 you gazing G1519 up into G3772 heaven? G3778 this G3778 same G2424 Jesus, G3588 which G353 is taken G1519 up from you into G3772 heaven, G3779 shall so G2064 come G3779 in like G5158 manner G2300 as you have seen G4198 him go G1519 into G3772 heaven.
12 G5119 Then G5290 returned G2419 they to Jerusalem G3735 from the mount G2564 called G1638 Olivet, G3739 which G2419 is from Jerusalem G4521 a sabbath G3598 day’s journey.
13 G3753 And when G1525 they were come G305 in, they went G1519 up into G5253 an upper G5253 room, G3757 where G2650 stayed G5037 both G4074 Peter, G2385 and James, G2491 and John, G406 and Andrew, G5376 Philip, G2381 and Thomas, G918 Bartholomew, G3156 and Matthew, G2385 James G256 the son of Alphaeus, G4613 and Simon G2208 Zelotes, G2455 and Judas G2385 the brother of James.
14 G3778 These G3956 all G4342 continued G3661 with one G3661 accord G4335 in prayer G1162 and supplication, G1135 with the women, G3137 and Mary G3384 the mother G2424 of Jesus, G80 and with his brothers.
15 G5025 And in those G2250 days G4074 Peter G450 stood G3319 up in the middle G3101 of the disciples, G2036 and said, G3793 (the number G3686 of names G1909 together G5613 were about G1540 an hundred G1501 and twenty,)
16 G435 Men G80 and brothers, G5026 this G1124 scripture G1163 must G4137 needs have been fulfilled, G3739 which G40 the Holy G4151 Ghost G4750 by the mouth G1138 of David G4277 spoke G4277 before G4012 concerning G2455 Judas, G3588 which G3595 was guide G4815 to them that took G2424 Jesus.
17 G2674 For he was numbered G2975 with us, and had obtained G2819 part G5026 of this G1248 ministry.
18 G3767 Now G3778 this G2932 man purchased G5564 a field G3408 with the reward G93 of iniquity; G4248 and falling G1096 G4248 headlong, G2997 he burst G2997 asunder G3319 in the middle, G3956 and all G4698 his bowels G1632 gushed out.
19 G1110 And it was known G3956 to all G2730 the dwellers G2419 at Jerusalem; G5620 so G5564 as that field G2564 is called G2398 in their proper G1258 tongue, G184 Aceldama, G5564 that is to say, The field G129 of blood.
20 G1125 For it is written G976 in the book G5568 of Psalms, G1886 Let his habitation G2048 be desolate, G3361 and let no G2730 man dwell G1722 therein: G846 G1984 and his position as bishop G2087 let another G2983 take.
21 G3767 Why G5130 of these G4905 men which have companied G3956 with us all G5550 the time G2962 that the Lord G2424 Jesus G1525 went G1831 G1909 in and out among us,
22 G756 Beginning G908 from the baptism G2491 of John, G2250 to that same day G353 that he was taken G1163 up from us, must G1520 one G1096 be ordained G3144 to be a witness G386 with us of his resurrection.
23 G2476 And they appointed G1417 two, G2501 Joseph G2564 called G923 Barsabas, G3739 who G1941 was surnamed G2459 Justus, G3159 and Matthias.
24 G4336 And they prayed, G2036 and said, G2962 You, Lord, G2589 which know G2589 the hearts G3956 of all G322 men, show G3739 whether G1520 G5130 of these G1417 two G1586 you have chosen,
25 G2983 That he may take G2819 part G5026 of this G1248 ministry G651 and apostleship, G3739 from which G2455 Judas G3845 by transgression G4198 fell, that he might go G2398 to his own G5117 place.
