NASB — Acts 1 — KJV

Introduction

1 The first account I Icomposed, aTheophilus, about all that Jesus bbegan to do and teach, 2 until the day when He awas taken up [to heaven], after He bhad Iby the Holy Spirit given orders to cthe apostles whom He had dchosen. 3 To Ithese aHe also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over [a period of] forty days and speaking of bthe things concerning the kingdom of God. 4 IGathering them together, He commanded them anot to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for IIbwhat the Father had promised, “Which,” [He said], “you heard of from Me; 5 for aJohn baptized with water, but you will be baptized Iwith the Holy Spirit IIbnot many days from now.”

The Ascension

9 And after He had said these things, aHe 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 Ithe sky while He was going, behold, atwo men in white clothing stood beside them. 11 They also said, “aMen of Galilee, why do you stand looking into Ithe sky? This Jesus, who bhas been taken up from you into heaven, will ccome in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

The Upper Room

12 ¶ Then they areturned to Jerusalem from the Ibmount called IIOlivet, which is near Jerusalem, a IIISabbath day’s journey away. 13 When they had entered [the city], they went up to athe upper room where they were staying; bthat is, Peter and John and IJames and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, IJames [the son] of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and cJudas [the] II[son] of IJames. 14 These all with one mind awere continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with b[the] women, and Mary the cmother of Jesus, and with His cbrothers.

15IAt this time Peter stood up in the midst of athe brethren (a gathering of about one hundred and twenty IIpersons was there together), and said, 16 “Brethren, athe Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, bwho became a guide to those who arrested Jesus. 17 For he was acounted among us and received his share in bthis ministry.” 18 (Now this man aacquired a field with bthe 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 atheir own language that field was called Hakeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) 20 “For it is written in the book of Psalms,
  ‘aLET HIS HOMESTEAD BE MADE DESOLATE,
  AND LET NO ONE DWELL IN IT’;
and,
  ‘bLET ANOTHER MAN TAKE HIS IOFFICE.’
21 Therefore it is necessary that of the men who have accompanied us all the time that athe Lord Jesus went in and out Iamong us— 22 abeginning Iwith the baptism of John until the day that He bwas taken up from us—one of these [must] become a cwitness with us of His resurrection.” 23 So they put forward two men, Joseph called Barsabbas (who was also called Justus), and aMatthias. 24 And they aprayed and said, “You, Lord, bwho know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen 25 to Ioccupy athis ministry and bapostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.” 26 And they Iadrew lots for them, and the lot fell IIto bMatthias; and he was IIIadded to cthe eleven apostles.

Christ, preparing his Apostles to the beholding of his ascension, gathereth them together into the mount Olivet, commandeth them to expect in Jerusalem the sending down of the Holy Ghost, promiseth after few days to send it, by virtue whereof they should be witnesses unto him, even to the utmost parts of the earth.

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.

After his ascension they are warned by two angels to depart, and to set their minds upon his second coming.

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.

They accordingly return, and, giving themselves to prayer, choose Matthias apostle in the place of Judas.

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.
