ESV 1 But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, NIV 1 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. ESV 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. NIV 2 With his wife's full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles' feet. ESV 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? NIV 3 Then Peter said, "Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? ESV 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 men but to God." NIV 4 Didn't it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn't the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God." ESV 5 When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all who heard of it. NIV 5 When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. ESV 6 The young men rose and wrapped him up and carried him out and buried him. NIV 6 Then the young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him. ESV 7 After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. NIV 7 About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. ESV 8 And Peter said to her, "Tell me whether you sold the land for so much." And she said, "Yes, for so much." NIV 8 Peter asked her, "Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?" "Yes," she said, "that is the price." ESV 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." NIV 9 Peter said to her, "How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also." ESV 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. NIV 10 At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband. ESV 11 And great fear came upon the whole church and upon all who heard of these things. NIV 11 Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events. ESV 12 Now many signs and wonders were regularly done among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon's Portico. NIV 12 The apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon's Colonnade. ESV 13 None of the rest dared join them, but the people held them in high esteem. NIV 13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. ESV 14 And more than ever believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, NIV 14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. ESV 15 so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them. NIV 15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter's shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. ESV 16 The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed. NIV 16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and all of them were healed. ESV 17 But the high priest rose up, and all who were with him (that is, the party of the Sadducees), and filled with jealousy NIV 17 Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy. ESV 18 they arrested the apostles and put them in the public prison. NIV 18 They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. ESV 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, NIV 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. ESV 20 "Go and stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this Life." NIV 20 "Go, stand in the temple courts," he said, "and tell the people the full message of this new life." ESV 21 And when they heard this, they entered the temple at daybreak and began to teach. Now when the high priest came, and those who were with him, they called together the council and all the senate of the people of Israel and sent to the prison to have them brought. NIV 21 At daybreak they entered the temple courts, as they had been told, and began to teach the people. When the high priest and his associates arrived, they called together the Sanhedrin--the full assembly of the elders of Israel--and sent to the jail for the apostles. ESV 22 But when the officers came, they did not find them in the prison, so they returned and reported, NIV 22 But on arriving at the jail, the officers did not find them there. So they went back and reported, ESV 23 "We found the prison securely locked and the guards standing at the doors, but when we opened them we found no one inside." NIV 23 "We found the jail securely locked, with the guards standing at the doors; but when we opened them, we found no one inside." ESV 24 Now when the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these words, they were greatly perplexed about them, wondering what this would come to. NIV 24 On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were puzzled, wondering what would come of this. ESV 25 And someone came and told them, "Look! The men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people." NIV 25 Then someone came and said, "Look! The men you put in jail are standing in the temple courts teaching the people." ESV 26 Then the captain with the officers went and brought them, but not by force, for they were afraid of being stoned by the people. NIV 26 At that, the captain went with his officers and brought the apostles. They did not use force, because they feared that the people would stone them. ESV 27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them, NIV 27 Having brought the apostles, they made them appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. ESV 28 saying, "We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man's blood upon us." NIV 28 "We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name," he said. "Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man's blood." ESV 29 But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men. NIV 29 Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather than men! ESV 30 The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree. NIV 30 The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead--whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.

ESV 32 And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him."

NIV 34 But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. ESV 35 And he said to them, "Men of Israel, take care what you are about to do with these men. NIV 35 Then he addressed them: "Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. ESV 36 For before these days Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody, and a number of men, about four hundred, joined him. He was killed, and all who followed him were dispersed and came to nothing. NIV 36 Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing.

NIV 37 After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. ESV 38 So in the present case I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or this undertaking is of man, it will fail; NIV 38 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. ESV 39 but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!" So they took his advice, NIV 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God." ESV 40 and when they had called in the apostles, they beat them and charged them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. NIV 40 His speech persuaded them. They called the apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.

NIV 41 The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.
