Fate of Ananias and Sapphira

But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, and (A)kept back some of the price for himself, with his wife’s [a]full knowledge, and bringing a portion of it, he (B)laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has (C)Satan filled your heart to lie (D)to the Holy Spirit and to (E)keep back some of the price of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not [b]under your control? Why is it that you have [c]conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but (F)to God.”
