Of the men therefore who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and went out among us,
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."
They put forward two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
They prayed, and said, "You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two you have chosen
to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas fell away, that he might go to his own place."
They drew lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
