Acts 4:32-5:11
  • 32Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common.
  • 33And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.
  • 34There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold
  • 35and laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.
  • 36Thus Joseph, who was also called by the apostles Barnabas (which means son of encouragement), a Levite, a native of Cyprus,
  • 37sold a field that belonged to him and brought the money and laid it at the apostles' feet.
  • 1But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property,
  • 2and with his wife's knowledge he kept back for himself some of the proceeds and brought only a part of it and laid it at the apostles' feet.
  • 3But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land?
  • 4While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God."
  • 5When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all who heard of it.
  • 6The young men rose and wrapped him up and carried him out and buried him.
  • 7After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened.
  • 8And Peter said to her, "Tell me whether you sold the land for so much." And she said, "Yes, for so much."
  • 9But Peter said to her, "How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out."
  • 10Immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. When the young men came in they found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.
  • 11And great fear came upon the whole church and upon all who heard of these things.
