There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them,5 brought the money from the sales
and put it at the apostles' feet,6 and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.7
Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas8 (which means Son of Encouragement),
sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles' feet.9
