Acts 1:16-26

LITV(i) 16 Men, brothers, it was necessary for this Scripture to be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit spoke before by David's mouth concerning Judas, the one having become guide to those seizing Jesus; 17 for he was numbered with us, and obtained a portion of this ministry. 18 Indeed, then, this one bought a field out of the reward of unrighteousness; and falling headlong, he burst in the middle, and poured out all his bowels. 19 And it became known to all those living in Jerusalem, so as that field to be called in their own dialect, Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood. 20 For it has been written in the scroll of Psalms, Let his estate become forsaken, and he not be living in it. And, "Let another take his overseership." LXX-Psa. 68:26; Psa. 108:8; MT-Psa. 69:25; Psa. 109:8 21 Therefore, it is right that one of these men being together with us all the time in which the Lord Jesus came in and went out among us, 22 beginning from the baptism of John until the day when He was taken from us, one of these to become a witness of His resurrection with us. 23 And they set out two: Joseph, he being called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24 And having prayed, they said, You, Lord, knower of all hearts, show which one You chose from these two, 25 to take the share of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas fell, to go to his own place. 26 And they gave their lots. And the lot fell on Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
