Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband [are] at the door, and shall carry thee out.
And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried [him] out, and buried [him].
And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back [part] of the price of the land?
And kept back [part] of the price, his wife also being privy [to it], and brought a certain part, and laid [it] at the apostles' feet.
Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying [her] forth, buried [her] by her husband.
