Acts 5:9 Meaning and Commentary

Acts 5:9

Then Peter said unto her, how is it that ye have agreed
together
For husband and wife to agree together in what is good, in things civil, honest, and lawful, and in religious matters, is very commendable; but to agree in a fraud, in a lie, is very dreadful:

to tempt the Spirit of the Lord;
to try whether the apostles had the Spirit of the Lord, or not; and whether the Spirit of the Lord that was in them was omniscient and omnipotent, would take any notice of it, and inflict punishment for it:

behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the
door;
which Peter knew either by hearing the sound of their feet, as Ahijah the prophet heard the sound of the feet of Jeroboam's wife, as she came in at the door, ( 1 Kings 14:6 ) or by the same spirit as Elisha knew that Gehazi ran after Naaman, and received money and garments from him, ( 2 Kings 5:26 ) and shall carry thee out; of this house dead, and bury thee, as they have thy husband.

Acts 5:9 In-Context

7 After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened.
8 Peter said to her, "Tell me whether you and your husband sold the land for such and such a price." And she said, "Yes, that was the price."
9 Then Peter said to her, "How is it that you have agreed together to put the Spirit of the Lord to the test? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out."
10 Immediately she fell down at his feet and died. When the young men came in they found her dead, so they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.
11 And great fear seized the whole church and all who heard of these things.
