King James Version

Acts 1

1The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

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:

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:

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.

For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

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.

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.

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.

使徒行传 1

应许圣灵降临

1提阿非罗啊,在前一封信中,我从耶稣的生平和教导开始, 一直谈到祂借着圣灵吩咐了自己选立的使徒,然后被接回天上。 祂受难后用许多确凿的证据证实自己活着,在四十天之内屡次向使徒显现,与他们谈论上帝的国。 有一次,耶稣和他们在一起吃饭的时候,叮嘱他们:“你们不要离开耶路撒冷,要在那里等候我对你们说过的天父的应许。 因为从前约翰用水给你们施洗,但再过几天,你们要受圣灵的洗。”

他们跟耶稣在一起的时候问祂:“主啊,你要在这时候复兴以色列国吗?” 耶稣回答说:“天父照祂的权柄定下的时间、日期不是你们可以知道的。 但圣灵降临在你们身上后,你们必得到能力,在耶路撒冷、犹太全境和撒玛利亚,直到地极,做我的见证人。”

耶稣说完这番话,就在他们眼前被提升天,被一朵云彩接去,离开了他们的视线。 10 祂上升时,他们都定睛望着天空,忽然有两个身穿白衣的人站在他们身旁, 11 说:“加利利人啊!你们为什么站在这里望着天空呢?这位离开你们被接到天上的耶稣,你们看见祂怎样升天,将来祂还要怎样回来。”

选立新使徒

12 于是,他们从橄榄山回到耶路撒冷。橄榄山距离耶路撒冷不远,约是安息日允许走的路程[a] 13 他们进城后,来到楼上自己住的房间。当时有彼得、约翰、雅各、安得烈、腓力、多马、巴多罗买、马太、亚勒腓的儿子雅各、激进党人西门、雅各的儿子犹大。 14 他们和耶稣的母亲玛丽亚、耶稣的弟弟们及几个妇女在一起同心合意地恒切祷告。

15 那时,约有一百二十人在聚会,彼得站起来说: 16 “弟兄们,关于带人抓耶稣的犹大,圣灵借着大卫的口早已预言,这经文必须要应验。 17 这人原本是我们中间的一员,与我们同担使徒的职分。”

18 犹大用作恶得来的钱买了一块田,他头朝下栽倒在那里,肚破肠流。 19 这消息很快传遍了耶路撒冷,当地人称那块田为“亚革大马”,就是“血田”的意思。

20 彼得继续说:“诗篇上写道,‘愿他的家园一片荒凉,无人居住’,又说,‘愿别人取代他的职位。’ 21-22 所以,我们必须另选一个人代替犹大,与我们一同为主耶稣的复活做见证。他必须是从主耶稣接受约翰的洗礼起一直到主升天,始终与我们在一起的人。”

23 被提名的有别号巴撒巴又叫犹士都的约瑟和马提亚两个人。 24-25 大家便祷告说:“主啊!你洞悉人的内心,求你指明这两个人中你要拣选哪一个来担负使徒的职分。犹大丢弃了这职分,去了他该去的地方。” 26 然后,他们抽签,抽中了马提亚,就把他列入十一使徒中。
