And Peter answered unto her
Who might be inquiring for her husband; though such a way of speaking was common with the Jews, when nothing goes before to which the answer is made; of which there are frequent instances in the sacred writings:
tell me whether ye sold the land for so much;
naming the sum of money which Ananias had brought; though the historian does not mention it. The Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions read, "tell me, O woman" not calling her by her name, as he did her husband, ( Acts 5:3 )
yea, she said for so much;
just that sum, and no more.
