And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.
