Acts 4:36 - 5:11 - Thus Joseph, who was also called by the
apostles Barnabas (which means son of encouragement), a Levite, a
native of Cyprus, 37 sold a field that belonged to him and brought
the money and laid it at the apostles' feet. But a man named
Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, 2 and
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. 3 But 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? 4 While 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 man but to God.” 5 When Ananias heard these words, he fell
down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all who heard
of it. 6 The young men rose and wrapped him up and carried him out
and buried him.
7 After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 And Peter said to her, “Tell me whether you[a] sold the land for so much.” And she said, “Yes, for so much.” 9 But 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.” 10 Immediately 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. 11 And great fear came upon the whole church and upon all who heard of these things.
