1:1 The former writing I have made, O Theophilus, of all that YASHUWAH began both to do and teach, Acts
1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after he had given commandments through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen: Acts
1:3 To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion, by many infallible proofs, being seen by them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of Elohim: Acts
1:4 And being assembled with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, he says, You* have heard from me. Acts
1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but you* shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.
1:6 When they therefore had come together, they asked of him, saying, Master, will you at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? Acts
1:7 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 power. Acts
1:8 But you* shall receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you*: and you* shall be witnesses to me, in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the earth.
1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. Acts
1:10 And while they looked steadfastly towards heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Acts
1:11 Who also said, Men of Galilee, why do you* stand gazing up to heaven? this same YASHUWAH who has been taken from you* into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you* have seen him go into heaven.
1:12 Then they returned to Jerusalem, from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey. Acts
1:13 And when they had come in, they went into an upper room, where they were abiding: that is Peter, James, John, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James the son of Alpheus, Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. Acts
1:14 All of these continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Miriam the mother of YASHUWAH, and with his brothers.
1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said (the number of the names together were about one hundred and twenty), Acts
1:16 Men, brothers, It was necessary that this Scripture should be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit by the mouth of David spoke before concerning Judas, who was guide to those who took YASHUWAH. Acts
1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Acts
1:18 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. Acts
1:19 And it was known to all the dwellers at Jerusalem; so that in their proper tongue that field is called, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell in it: and, Let another take his overseer ministry.
1:21 Therefore, of these men who accompanied us, all the time that the Master YASHUWAH went in and out among us, Acts
1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, to that same day that he was taken up from us, one must be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection. Acts
1:23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. Acts
1:24 And they prayed, and said, You, YHWH, who know the hearts of all men, show which of these two you have chosen, Acts
1:25 So that he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, so that he might go to his own place. Acts
1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
