Acts 1 (WEBP)

[1] The first book I wrote, Theophilus, concerned all that Jesus began both to do and to teach,
[2] until the day in which he was received up, after he had given commandment through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen.
[3] To these he also showed himself alive after he suffered, by many proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking about God’s Kingdom.
[4] Being assembled together with them, he commanded them, “Don’t depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which you heard from me.
[5] For John indeed baptized in water, but you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
[6] Therefore, when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, are you now restoring the kingdom to Israel?”
[7] He said to them, “It isn’t for you to know times or seasons which the Father has set within his own authority.
[8] But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. You will be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”
[9] When he had said these things, as they were looking, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight.
[10] While they were looking steadfastly into the sky as he went, behold,§ two men stood by them in white clothing,
[11] who also said, “You men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who was received up from you into the sky, will come back in the same way as you saw him going into the sky.”
[12] Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mountain called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away.
[13] When they had come in, they went up into the upper room where they were staying, that is Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas the son of James.
[14] All these with one accord continued steadfastly in prayer and supplication, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
[15] In these days, Peter stood up in the middle of the disciples (and the number of names was about one hundred twenty), and said,
[16] “Brothers, it was necessary that this Scripture should be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was guide to those who took Jesus.
[17] For he was counted with us, and received his portion in this ministry.
[18] Now this man obtained a field with the reward for his wickedness; and falling headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines gushed out.
[19] It became known to everyone who lived in Jerusalem that in their language that field was called ‘Akeldama,’ that is, ‘The field of blood.’
[20] For it is written in the book of Psalms, ‘Let his habitation be made desolate. Let no one dwell in it;’ and, ‘Let another take his office.’
[21] “Of the men therefore who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
[22] beginning from the baptism of John to the day that he was received up from us, of these one must become a witness with us of his resurrection.”
[23] They put forward two: Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also called Justus, and Matthias.
[24] They prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two you have chosen
[25] to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas fell away, that he might go to his own place.”
[26] They drew lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was counted with the eleven apostles.

Acts 1 (KJVS)

[1] The former G3303 G4413 treatise G3056 have I made G4160 (AorMidInd), O G5599 Theophilus G2321, of G4012 all G3956 that G3739 Jesus G2424 began G756 (AorMidDepInd) both G5037 to do G4160 (PresActInf) and G2532 teach G1321 (PresActInf),
[2] Until G891 the day G2250 in which G3739 he was taken up G353 (AorPasInd), after that he through G1223 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 had given commandments G1781 (AorMidPasDepPtc) unto the apostles G652 whom G3739 he had chosen G1586 (AorMidInd):
[3] To whom G3739 also G2532 he shewed G3936 (AorActInd) himself G1438 alive G2198 (PresActPtc) after G3326 his G846 passion G3958 (Aor2ActInf) by G1722 many G4183 infallible proofs G5039, being seen G3700 (PresMidPasDepPtc) of them G846 G1223 forty G5062 days G2250, and G2532 speaking G3004 (PresActPtc) of the things pertaining G4012 to the kingdom G932 of God G2316:
[4] And G2532, being assembled together G4871 (PresMidPasDepPtc) with G846 [them], commanded G3853 (AorActInd) them G846 that they should G5563 not G3361 depart G5563 (PresPasInf) from G575 Jerusalem G2414, but G235 wait G4037 (PresActInf) for the promise G1860 of the Father G3962, which G3739, [saith he], ye have heard G191 (AorActInd) of me G3450.
[5] For G3754 John G2491 truly G3303 baptized G907 (AorActInd) with water G5204; but G1161 ye G5210 shall be baptized G907 (FutPasInd) with G1722 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 not G3756 many G3326 G4183 days G2250 hence G5025.
[6] When G3303 they therefore G3767 were come together G4905 (Aor2ActPtc), they asked G1905 (ImpfActInd) of him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Lord G2962, G1487 wilt thou G600 at G1722 this G5129 time G5550 restore again G600 (PresActInd) the kingdom G932 to Israel G2474?
[7] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, It is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 for you G5216 to know G1097 (Aor2ActInf) the times G5550 or G2228 the seasons G2540, which G3739 the Father G3962 hath put G5087 (Aor2MidInd) in G1722 his own G2398 power G1849.
[8] But G235 ye shall receive G2983 (FutMidDepInd) power G1411, after that the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 is come G1904 (Aor2ActPtc) upon G1909 you G5209: and G2532 ye shall be G2071 (FutInd) witnesses G3144 unto me G3427 both G5037 in G1722 Jerusalem G2419, and G2532 in G1722 all G3956 Judaea G2449, and G2532 in Samaria G4540, and G2532 unto G2193 the uttermost part G2078 of the earth G1093.
[9] And G2532 when he had spoken G2036 (Aor2ActPtc) these things G5023, while they G846 beheld G991 (PresActPtc), he was taken up G1869 (AorPasInd); and G2532 a cloud G3507 received G5274 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 out of G575 their G846 sight G3788.
[10] And G2532 while G5613 they looked stedfastly G2258 (ImpfInd) G816 (PresActPtc) toward G1519 heaven G3772 as he G846 went up G4198 (PresMidPasDepPtc), G2532 behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), two G1417 men G435 stood by G3936 (PlupfActInd) them G846 in G1722 white G3022 apparel G2066;
[11] Which G3739 also G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Ye men G435 of Galilee G1057, why G5101 stand ye G2476 (PerfActInd) gazing up G1689 (PresActPtc) into G1519 heaven G3772? this same G3778 Jesus G2424, which G3588 is taken up G353 (AorPasPtc) from G575 you G5216 into G1519 heaven G3772, shall G2064 so G3779 come G2064 (FutMidDepInd) in like manner as G3739 G5158 ye have seen G2300 (AorMidDepInd) him G846 go G4198 (PresMidPasDepPtc) into G1519 heaven G3772.
[12] Then G5119 returned they G5290 (AorActInd) unto G1519 Jerusalem G2419 from G575 the mount G3735 called G2564 (PresPasPtc) Olivet G1638, which G3739 is G2076 (PresInd) from G1451 Jerusalem G2419 a sabbath G4521 day’s journey G2192 (PresActPtc) G3598.
[13] And G2532 when G3753 they were come in G1525 (Aor2ActInd), they went up G305 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 an upper room G5253, where G3757 abode G2258 (ImpfInd) G2650 (PresActPtc) both G5037 Peter G4074, and G2532 James G2385, and G2532 John G2491, and G2532 Andrew G406, Philip G5376, and G2532 Thomas G2381, Bartholomew G918, and G2532 Matthew G3156, James G2385 [the son] of Alphaeus G256, and G2532 Simon G4613 Zelotes G2208, and G2532 Judas G2455 [the brother] of James G2385.
[14] These G3778 all G3956 continued G2258 (ImpfInd) G4342 (PresActPtc) with one accord G3661 in prayer G4335 and G2532 supplication G1162, with G4862 the women G1135, and G2532 Mary G3137 the mother G3384 of Jesus G2424, and G2532 with G4862 his G846 brethren G80.
[15] And G2532 in G1722 those G5025 days G2250 Peter G4074 stood up G450 (Aor2ActPtc) in G1722 the midst G3319 of the disciples G3101, and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), G5037 (the number G3793 of names G3686 together G1909 G846 were G2258 (ImpfInd) about G5613 an hundred G1540 and twenty G1501,)
[16] Men G435 [and] brethren G80, this G5026 scripture G1124 must G1163 (ImpfInd) needs have been fulfilled G4137 (AorPasInf), which G3739 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 by G1223 the mouth G4750 of David G1138 spake before G4277 (Aor2ActInd) concerning G4012 Judas G2455, which G3588 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) guide G3595 to them that took G4815 (Aor2ActPtc) Jesus G2424.
[17] For G3754 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) numbered G2674 (PerfPasPtc) with G4862 us G2254, and G2532 had obtained G2975 (Aor2ActInd) part G2819 of this G5026 ministry G1248.
[18] Now G3303 G3767 this man G3778 purchased G2932 (AorMidDepInd) a field G5564 with G1537 the reward G3408 of iniquity G93; and G2532 falling G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) headlong G4248, he burst asunder G2997 (AorActInd) in the midst G3319, and G2532 all G3956 his G846 bowels G4698 gushed out G1632 (AorPasInd).
[19] And G2532 it was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) known G1110 unto all G3956 the dwellers G2730 (PresActPtc) at Jerusalem G2419; insomuch as G5620 that G1565 field G5564 is called G2564 (AorPasInf) in their G846 proper G2398 tongue G1258, Aceldama G184, that is to say G5123 (PresInd), The field G5564 of blood G129.
[20] For G1063 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd) in G1722 the book G976 of Psalms G5568, Let G1096 his G846 habitation G1886 be G1096 (AorPasDepImpr) desolate G2048, and G2532 let G2077 (PresImpr) no man G3361 dwell G2730 (PresActPtc) therein G1722 G846: and G2532 his G846 bishoprick G1984 let G2983 another G2087 take G2983 (Aor2ActOpt).
[21] Wherefore G3767 of these G5130 men G435 which have companied G4905 (Aor2ActPtc) with us G2254 all G3956 the time G5550 that G1722 G3739 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 went G1831 in G1525 (Aor2ActInd) and G2532 out G1831 (Aor2ActInd) among G1909 us G2248,
[22] Beginning G756 (AorMidPtc) from G575 the baptism G908 of John G2491, unto G2193 that same day G2250 that G3739 he was taken up G353 (AorPasInd) from G575 us G2257, must G1163 (PresInd) one G1520 be ordained G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) to be a witness G3144 with G4862 us G2254 of his G846 resurrection G386.
[23] And G2532 they appointed G2476 (Aor2ActInd) two G1417, Joseph G2501 called G2564 (PresPasPtc) Barsabas G923, who G3739 was surnamed G1941 (AorPasInd) Justus G2459, and G2532 Matthias G3159.
[24] And G2532 they prayed G4336 (AorMidDepPtc), and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Thou G4771, Lord G2962, which knowest the hearts G2589 of all G3956 [men], shew G322 (AorActImpr) whether G3739 G1520 of G1537 these G5130 two G1417 thou hast chosen G1586 (AorMidInd),
[25] That he may take G2983 (Aor2ActInf) part G2819 of this G5026 ministry G1248 and G2532 apostleship G651, from G1537 which G3739 Judas G2455 by transgression fell G3845 (Aor2ActInd), that he might go G4198 (AorPasDepInf) to G1519 his own G2398 place G5117.
[26] And G2532 they gave forth G1325 (AorActInd) their G846 lots G2819; and G2532 the lot G2819 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) upon G1909 Matthias G3159; and G2532 he was numbered G4785 (AorPasInd) with G3326 the eleven G1733 apostles G652.

Young’s Literal Translation

Acts 1 (YLT)

[1] The former account, indeed, I made concerning all things, O Theophilus, that Jesus began both to do and to teach,
[2] till the day in which, having given command, through the Holy Spirit, to the apostles whom he did choose out, he was taken up,
[3] to whom also he did present himself alive after his suffering, in many certain proofs, through forty days being seen by them, and speaking the things concerning the reign of God.
[4] And being assembled together with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ‘Ye did hear of me;
[5] because John, indeed, baptized with water, and ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit-after not many days.’
[6] They, therefore, indeed, having come together, were questioning him, saying, ‘Lord, dost thou at this time restore the reign to Israel?’
[7] and he said unto them, ‘It is not yours to know times or seasons that the Father did appoint in His own authority;
[8] but ye shall receive power at the coming of the Holy Spirit upon you, and ye shall be witnesses to me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and unto the end of the earth.’
[9] And these things having said-they beholding-he was taken up, and a cloud did receive him up from their sight;
[10] and as they were looking stedfastly to the heaven in his going on, then, lo, two men stood by them in white apparel,
[11] who also said, ‘Men, Galileans, why do ye stand gazing into the heaven? this Jesus who was received up from you into the heaven, shall so come in what manner ye saw him going on to the heaven.’
[12] Then did they return to Jerusalem from the mount that is called of Olives, that is near Jerusalem, a sabbath’s journey;
[13] and when they came in, they went up to the upper room, where were abiding both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James, of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zelotes, and Judas, of James;
[14] these all were continuing with one accord in prayer and supplication, with women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
[15] And in these days, Peter having risen up in the midst of the disciples, said, (the multitude also of the names at the same place was, as it were, an hundred and twenty,)
[16] ‘Men, brethren, it behoved this Writing that it be fulfilled that beforehand the Holy Spirit spake through the mouth of David, concerning Judas, who became guide to those who took Jesus,
[17] because he was numbered among us, and did receive the share in this ministration,
[18] this one, indeed, then, purchased a field out of the reward of unrighteousness, and falling headlong, burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed forth,
[19] and it became known to all those dwelling in Jerusalem, insomuch that that place is called, in their proper dialect, Aceldama, that is, field of blood,
[20] for it hath been written in the book of Psalms: Let his lodging-place become desolate, and let no one be dwelling in it, and his oversight let another take.
[21] ‘It behoveth, therefore, of the men who did go with us during all the time in which the Lord Jesus went in and went out among us,
[22] beginning from the baptism of John, unto the day in which he was received up from us, one of these to become with us a witness of his rising again.’
[23] And they set two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias,
[24] and having prayed, they said, ‘Thou, Lord, who art knowing the heart of all, shew which one thou didst choose of these two
[25] to receive the share of this ministration and apostleship, from which Judas, by transgression, did fall, to go on to his proper place;’
[26] and they gave their lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
