Acts 1:1-26, (KJV)
1  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
2  Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
3  To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
4  And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
5  For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
6  When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
7  And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
9  And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10  And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11  Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
12  Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
13  And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother 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 brethren.
15  And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
16  Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
17  For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
18  Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
19  And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
20  For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
21  Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
22  Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
23  And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24  And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
25  That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
26  And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Acts 1:1-26, (MKJV)
1  Truly, O Theophilus, I made the first report as to all things that Jesus began both to do and teach
2  until the day He was taken up, having given directions to the apostles whom He chose, through the Holy Spirit;
3  to whom He also presented Himself living after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them through forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
4  And having met with them , He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to await the promise of the Father which you heard from Me.
5  For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.
6  Then, indeed, these coming together, they asked Him, saying, Lord, do You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?
7  And He said to them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in His own authority.
8  But you shall receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you. And you shall be witnesses to Me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
9  And saying these things, as they watched, He was taken up. And a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10  And while they were looking intently into the heaven, He having gone, even behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them,
11  who also said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into the heaven? This same Jesus who is taken up from you into Heaven, will come in the way you have seen Him going into Heaven.
12  Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount Of Olive Grove, which is a sabbath day's journey from Jerusalem.
13  And when they had come in, they went up into an upper room, where Peter and James, and John and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alpheus and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James;
14  these all were continuing 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 and said, ( the number of names together was about a hundred and twenty,)
16  Men, brothers, this Scripture must have been fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit by the mouth of David spoke before concerning Judas, who became guide to those who seized Jesus.
17  For he was numbered with us and had obtained part of this ministry.
18  Indeed, then, this one purchased a field with the reward of unrighteousness. And falling headlong, he burst apart in the middle, and all his bowels gushed out.
19  And it was known to all the dwellers at Jerusalem, so much so that that field is called in their own dialect, Akeldama, that is to say, Field of Blood.
20  For it is written in the Book of Psalms, "Let his estate become forsaken, and he not be living in it." And, "Let another take his overseership."
21  Therefore, it is right that one of these men who have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus came in and went out among us,
22  beginning from the baptism of John to that same day that He was taken up from us, to become a witness with us of His resurrection.
23  And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24  And they prayed and 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 forth their lots. And the lot fell upon Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Acts 1:1-26, (NASB)
1  The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach,
2  until the day when He was taken up to heaven after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.
3  To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.
4  Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, "Which," He said, "you heard of from Me;
5  for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."
6  So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?"
7  He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;
8  but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."
9  And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10  And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them.
11  They also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven."
12  Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey away.
13  When they had entered the city they went up to the upper room where they were staying; that is, Peter and John and James 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 with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
15  At this time Peter stood up in the midst of the brethren (a gathering of about one hundred and twenty persons was there together), and said,
16  "Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.
17  "For he was counted among us and received his share in this ministry."
18  (Now this man acquired a field with the price of his wickedness, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his intestines gushed out.
19  And it became known to all who were living in Jerusalem; so that in their own language that field was called Hakeldama, that is, Field of Blood.)
20  "For it is written in the book of Psalms, 'Let his homestead be made desolate, And let no one dwell in it'; and, 'Let another man take his office.'
21  "Therefore it is necessary that of the men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us
22  beginning with the baptism of John until the day that He was taken up from us one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection."
23  So they put forward two men, Joseph called Barsabbas (who was also called Justus), and Matthias.
24  And they prayed and said, "You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen
25  to occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place."
26  And they drew lots for them, and the lot fell to Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.

Acts 1:1-26, (LITV)
1  Indeed, O Theophilus, I made the first report concerning all things which Jesus began both to do and to teach,
2  until the day He was taken up, having given directions to the apostles whom He elected, through the Holy Spirit,
3  to whom also He presented Himself living after His suffering, by many infallible proofs, being seen by them through forty days, and speaking the things concerning the kingdom of God.
4  And having met with them, He charged them not to leave Jerusalem, but to await the promise of the Father, "which you heard of Me;
5  for John indeed baptized in water, but you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days after."
6  Then, indeed, coming together they questioned Him, saying, Lord, do You restore the kingdom to Israel at this time?
7  And He said to them, It is not yours to know times or seasons which the Father placed in His own authority;
8  but you will receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you, and you will be witnesses of Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
9  And saying these things, as they looked on, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him from their sight.
10  And as they were intently looking into the heaven, He having gone, even behold, two men in white clothing stood by them,
11  who also said, Men, Galileans, why do you stand looking up to the heaven? This Jesus, the One being taken from you into the heaven, will come in the way you saw Him going into the heaven.
12  Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount being called Of Olive Grove, which is near Jerusalem, a sabbath's journey away.
13  And when they went in, they went up to the upper room where they were waiting: both Peter and James, and John and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alpheus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas the brother of James.
14  These all were continuing steadfastly in prayer and in supplication with one mind, with the women, and with Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
15  And in these days, standing up in the middle of the disciples, (and the number of names together being about a hundred and twenty), Peter said,
16  Men, brothers, it was necessary for this Scripture to be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit spoke before through 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 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.
