Acts 5:3

Overview - Acts 5
After that Ananias and Sapphira his wife for their hypocrisy, at Peter's rebuke had fallen down dead;
12 and that the rest of the apostles had wrought many miracles;
14 to the increase of the faith;
17 the apostles are again imprisoned;
19 but delivered by an angel bidding them preach openly to all;
21 when, after their teaching accordingly in the temple,
29 and before the council,
33 they are in danger to be killed; but through the advice of Gamaliel, a great counsellor among the Jews, they are kept alive, and are only beaten;
41 for which they glorify God, and cease no day from preaching.
