Isaiah chapter 11

1
There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
2
The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
3
His delight [is] in the fear of the LORD, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;
4
But with righteousness He shall judge the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.
5
Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.
6
" The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them.
7
The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together; And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8
The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den.
9
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD As the waters cover the sea.
10
" And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; For the Gentiles shall seek Him, And His resting place shall be glorious."
11
It shall come to pass in that day [That] the LORD shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea.
12
He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.
13
Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart, And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, And Judah shall not harass Ephraim.
14
But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; Together they shall plunder the people of the East; They shall lay their hand on Edom and Moab; And the people of Ammon shall obey them.
15
The LORD will utterly destroy the tongue of the Sea of Egypt; With His mighty wind He will shake His fist over the River, And strike it in the seven streams, And make [men] cross over dry-shod.
16
There will be a highway for the remnant of His people Who will be left from Assyria, As it was for Israel In the day that he came up from the land of Egypt.

Isaiah chapter 12

1
And in that day you will say: "O LORD, I will praise You; Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me.
2
Behold, God [is] my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; 'For YAH, the LORD, [is] my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.' "
3
Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation.
4
And in that day you will say: "Praise the LORD, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted.
5
Sing to the LORD, For He has done excellent things; This [is] known in all the earth.
6
Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great [is] the Holy One of Israel in your midst!"

Isaiah chapter 13

1
The burden against Babylon which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.
2
"Lift up a banner on the high mountain, Raise your voice to them; Wave your hand, that they may enter the gates of the nobles.
3
I have commanded My sanctified ones; I have also called My mighty ones for My anger -- Those who rejoice in My exaltation."
4
The noise of a multitude in the mountains, Like that of many people! A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together! The LORD of hosts musters The army for battle.
5
They come from a far country, From the end of heaven -- The LORD and His weapons of indignation, To destroy the whole land.
6
Wail, for the day of the LORD [is] at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
7
Therefore all hands will be limp, Every man's heart will melt,
8
And they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of [them;] They will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; They will be amazed at one another; Their faces [will be like] flames.
9
Behold, the day of the LORD comes, Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, To lay the land desolate; And He will destroy its sinners from it.
10
For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not give their light; The sun will be darkened in its going forth, And the moon will not cause its light to shine.
11
"I will punish the world for [its] evil, And the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, And will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12
I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, A man more than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13
Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the LORD of hosts And in the day of His fierce anger.
14
It shall be as the hunted gazelle, And as a sheep that no man takes up; Every man will turn to his own people, And everyone will flee to his own land.
15
Everyone who is found will be thrust through, And everyone who is captured will fall by the sword.
16
Their children also will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; Their houses will be plundered And their wives ravished.
17
" Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, Who will not regard silver; And [as for] gold, they will not delight in it.
18
Also [their] bows will dash the young men to pieces, And they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb; Their eye will not spare children.
19
And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, The beauty of the Chaldeans' pride, Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20
It will never be inhabited, Nor will it be settled from generation to generation; Nor will the Arabian pitch tents there, Nor will the shepherds make their sheepfolds there.
21
But wild beasts of the desert will lie there, And their houses will be full of owls; Ostriches will dwell there, And wild goats will caper there.
22
The hyenas will howl in their citadels, And jackals in their pleasant palaces. Her time [is] near to come, And her days will not be prolonged."

Acts chapter 1

1
The former account 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 He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen,
3
to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom 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," [He said,] "you have heard from Me;
5
"for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."
6
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?"
7
And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
8
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
9
Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10
And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,
11
who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This [same] Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."
12
Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day's journey.
13
And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James [the son] of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas [the son] 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 brothers.
15
And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples (altogether the number of names was about a hundred and twenty), and said,
16
"Men [and] brethren, this Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus;
17
"for he was numbered with us and obtained a part in this ministry."
18
(Now this man purchased a field with the wages of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his entrails gushed out.
19
And it became known to all those dwelling in Jerusalem; so that field is called in their own language, Akel Dama, that is, Field of Blood.)
20
"For it is written in the book of Psalms: 'Let his dwelling place be desolate, And let no one live in it'; and, 'Let another take his office.'
21
"Therefore, of these men 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 that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection."
23
And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24
And they prayed and said, "You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen
25
"to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place."
26
And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
