1 G4413 The first G3056 book G4160 I wrote, G5599 G2321 Theophilus, G4012 concerned G3956 all G3739 that G2424 Jesus G756 began G5037 both G4160 to do G2532 and G1321 to teach,
2 G891 until G2250 the day G3739 in which G353 he was received up, G1781 after he G1781 had given commandment G1223 through G4151 the G40 Holy G4151 Spirit G652 to the apostles G3739 whom G1586 he had chosen.
3 G3739 To these G2532 he also G3936 showed G1438 himself G2198 alive G3326 after G846 he G3958 suffered, G1722 by G4183 many G5039 proofs, G3700 appearing G1223 to G846 them G5062 over a period of forty G2250 days, G2532 and G3004 speaking G4012 about G2316 God's G932 Kingdom.
4 G2532 Being G4871 assembled together G3326 with G846 them, G3853 he commanded G846 them, G5563 G3361 "Don't G5563 depart G575 from G2414 Jerusalem, G235 but G4037 wait for G1860 the promise G3962 of the Father, G3739 which G191 you heard G3450 from me.
5 G3754 For G2491 John G3303 indeed G907 baptized G5204 in water, G1161 but G5210 you G907 will be baptized G1722 in G4151 the G40 Holy G4151 Spirit G3756 not G4183 many G2250 days G3778 from now."
6 G3767 Therefore, G4905 when they G4905 had come together, G1905 they asked G846 him, G3004 G2962 "Lord, G1487 are G600 you G1722 G5129 G5550 now G600 restoring G932 the kingdom G2474 to Israel?"
7 G1161 He G2036 said G4314 to G846 them, G1097 "It G2076 isn't G3756 G5216 for you G1097 to know G5550 times G2228 or G2540 seasons G3739 which G3962 the Father G5087 has set G1722 within G2398 his own G1849 authority.
8 G235 But G2983 you will receive G1411 power G1904 when G4151 the G40 Holy G4151 Spirit G1904 has come G1909 upon G5209 you. G2532 G5209 You G2071 will be G3144 witnesses G3427 to me G1722 in G2419 Jerusalem, G2532 G1722 in G3956 all G2449 Judea G2532 and G4540 Samaria, G2532 and G2193 to G2078 the uttermost G1093 parts of the earth."
9 G2532 When G2036 he had said G5023 these things, G991 as they were looking, G846 he G1869 was taken up, G2532 and G3507 a cloud G5274 received G846 him G575 out of G846 their G3788 sight.
10 G2532 G5613 While G2258 they were G816 looking steadfastly G1519 into G3772 the sky G4198 as G846 he G2532 went, G2400 behold, G1417 two G435 men G3936 stood by G846 them G1722 in G3022 white G2066 clothing,
11 G3739 who G2532 also G2036 said, G2476 "You G435 men G1057 of Galilee, G5101 why G2476 do you G1689 stand looking G1519 into G3772 the sky? G2424 This Jesus, G353 who was received up G575 from G5216 you G1519 into G3772 the sky G2064 will G2064 come G3779 back in the same G5158 way G3739 as G2300 you saw G846 him G4198 going G1519 into G3772 the sky."
12 G5119 Then G5290 they G1519 returned to G2419 Jerusalem G575 from G3735 the mountain G2564 called G1638 Olivet, G3739 which G2076 is G2419 near Jerusalem, G2192 a G4521 Sabbath day's G3598 journey G2192 away.
13 G2532 G3753 When G2258 they had G1525 come in, G305 they went up G1519 into G5253 the upper room, G3757 where G5037 they G2650 were staying; G4074 that is Peter, G2532 G2491 John, G2532 G2385 James, G2532 G406 Andrew, G5376 Philip, G2532 G2381 Thomas, G918 Bartholomew, G2532 G3156 Matthew, G2385 James G256 the son of Alphaeus, G2532 G4613 Simon G2207 the Zealot, G2532 and G2455 Judas G2385 the son of James.
14 G3956 All G3778 these G2258 G3661 with one accord G4342 continued G4335 steadfastly in prayer G2532 and G1162 supplication, G4862 along with G1135 the women, G2532 and G3137 Mary G3384 the mother G2424 of Jesus, G2532 and G4862 with G846 his G80 brothers.
15 G2532 G1722 In G3778 these G2250 days, G4074 Peter G450 stood up G1722 in G3319 the midst G3101 of the disciples G3793 (and the number G3686 of names G1909 G846 G2258 was G5613 about G1540 one hundred G1501 twenty), G5037 and G2036 said,
16 G435 G80 "Brothers, G1163 it was necessary G3778 that this G1124 Scripture G4137 should be fulfilled, G3739 which G4151 the G40 Holy G4151 Spirit G4277 spoke before G1223 by G4750 the mouth G1138 of David G4012 concerning G2455 Judas, G1096 who was G3595 guide G4815 to those who took G2424 Jesus.
17 G3754 For G2674 he G2258 was G2674 numbered G4862 with G2254 us, G2532 and G2975 received G2819 his portion G3778 in this G1248 ministry.
18 G3767 Now G3778 this man G2932 obtained G5564 a field G1537 with G3408 the reward G93 for his wickedness, G2532 and G1096 falling G4248 headlong, G2997 his body burst open, G3319 G2532 and G3956 all G846 his G4698 intestines G1632 gushed out.
19 G2532 It G1096 became G1110 known G3956 to everyone G1565 who G2730 lived G2419 in Jerusalem G5620 that G846 in their G2398 G1258 language G5124 that G5564 field G2564 was called G184 ‘Akeldama,' G5124 that G5564 is, ‘The field G129 of blood.'
20 G1063 For G1125 it ‘Let is another written G1722 take in G976 his the office.' book G5568 of Psalms, G1096 ‘Let G846 his G1886 habitation G1096 be G2048 made desolate. G2532 G2077 Let G3361 no G2730 one dwell G846 therein;'
21 G435 "Of the men G3767 therefore G3588 who G4905 have accompanied G2254 us G1722 G3956 all G5550 the time G1722 G3739 that G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G1525 went in G2532 and G1831 out G1909 among G2248 us,
22 G756 beginning G575 from G908 the baptism G2491 of John, G2193 to G3739 the G2250 day G3739 that G353 he was received up G575 from G2257 us, G5130 of these G1520 one G1096 must G1096 become G3144 a witness G4862 with G2254 us G846 of his G386 resurrection."
23 G2532 They G2476 put forward G1417 two, G2501 Joseph G2564 called G923 Barsabbas, G3739 who G1941 was surnamed G2459 Justus, G2532 and G3159 Matthias.
24 G2532 They G4336 prayed, G2532 and G2036 said, G4771 "You, G2962 Lord, G2589 who know the hearts G3956 of all G322 men, show G3739 which G1520 one G1537 of G5130 these G1417 two G1586 you have chosen
25 G2983 to take G2819 part G3778 in this G1248 ministry G2532 and G651 apostleship G1537 from G3739 which G2455 Judas G3845 fell G4198 away, that he might go G1519 to G2398 his own G5117 place."
