1 But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property,
4 “While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not 1under your control? Why is it that you have 2conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but ato God.”
6 The young men got up and acovered him up, and after carrying him out, they buried him.
9 Then Peter said to her, “Why is it that you have agreed together to aput bthe Spirit of the Lord to the test? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out as well.”
10 And immediately she afell at his feet and breathed her last, and the young men came in and found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.
11 And agreat fear came over the whole church, and over all who heard of these things.
13 But none of the rest dared to associate with them; however, athe people held them in high esteem.
15 to such an extent that they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by aat least his shadow might fall on any one of them.
18 They laid hands on the apostles and aput them in a public jail.
19 But during the night aan angel of the Lord opened the gates of the prison, and taking them out he said,
21 Upon hearing this, they entered into the temple aabout daybreak and began to teach.
22 But athe officers who came did not find them in the prison; and they returned and reported back,
29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “aWe must obey God rather than men.
36 “For some time ago Theudas rose up, aclaiming to be somebody, and a group of about four hundred men joined up with him. 1But he was killed, and all who 2followed him were dispersed and came to nothing.
39 but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them; or else you may even be found afighting against God.”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
