Bible: Acts 5:1-6

The Judgment on Ananias and Sapphira

5:1 Now a man named Ananias, together with Sapphira his wife, sold a piece of property. 5:2 He 1  kept back for himself part of the proceeds with his wife’s knowledge; he brought 2  only part of it and placed it at the apostlesfeet. 5:3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled 3  your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back for yourself part of the proceeds from the sale of 4  the land? 5:4 Before it was sold, 5  did it not 6  belong to you? And when it was sold, was the money 7  not at your disposal? How have you thought up this deed in your heart? 8  You have not lied to people 9  but to God!

5:5 When Ananias heard these words he collapsed and died, and great fear gripped 10  all who heard about it. 5:6 So the young men came, 11  wrapped him up, 12  carried him out, and buried 13  him.
