1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the [a]path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. 3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by [b]streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its [c]leaf does not wither; And [d]in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For the Lord[e]knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.
15 [a]At this time Peter stood up in the midst of the brethren (a gathering of about one hundred and twenty [b]persons was there together), and said,16 “Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.17 For he was counted among us and received his share in this ministry.”
21 Therefore it is necessary that of the men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out [a]among us—22 beginning [b]with the baptism of John until the day that He was taken up from us—one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.”23 So they put forward two men, Joseph called Barsabbas (who was also called Justus), and Matthias.24 And they prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen25 to [c]occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.”26 And they [d]drew lots for them, and the lot fell [e]to Matthias; and he was [f]added to the eleven apostles.
