Acts 5

But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
vir autem quidam nomine Ananias cum Saffira uxore sua vendidit agrum
And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
et fraudavit de pretio agri conscia uxore sua et adferens partem quandam ad pedes apostolorum posuit
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
dixit autem Petrus Anania cur temptavit Satanas cor tuum mentiri te Spiritui Sancto et fraudare de pretio agri
Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
nonne manens tibi manebat et venundatum in tua erat potestate quare posuisti in corde tuo hanc rem non es mentitus hominibus sed Deo
And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
audiens autem Ananias haec verba cecidit et exspiravit et factus est timor magnus in omnes qui audierant
And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.
surgentes autem iuvenes amoverunt eum et efferentes sepelierunt
And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
factum est autem quasi horarum trium spatium et uxor ipsius nesciens quod factum fuerat introiit
And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
respondit autem ei Petrus dic mihi si tanti agrum vendidistis at illa dixit etiam tanti
Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
Petrus autem ad eam quid utique convenit vobis temptare Spiritum Domini ecce pedes eorum qui sepelierunt virum tuum ad ostium et efferent te
Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
confestim cecidit ante pedes eius et exspiravit intrantes autem iuvenes invenerunt illam mortuam et extulerunt et sepelierunt ad virum suum
And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.
et factus est timor magnus in universa ecclesia et in omnes qui audierunt haec
And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
per manus autem apostolorum fiebant signa et prodigia multa in plebe et erant unianimiter omnes in porticu Salomonis
And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
ceterorum autem nemo audebat coniungere se illis sed magnificabat eos populus
And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
magis autem augebatur credentium in Domino multitudo virorum ac mulierum
Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
ita ut in plateas eicerent infirmos et ponerent in lectulis et grabattis ut veniente Petro saltim umbra illius obumbraret quemquam eorum
There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
concurrebat autem et multitudo vicinarum civitatum Hierusalem adferentes aegros et vexatos ab spiritibus inmundis qui curabantur omnes
Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,
exsurgens autem princeps sacerdotum et omnes qui cum illo erant quae est heresis Sadducaeorum repleti sunt zelo
And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.
et iniecerunt manus in apostolos et posuerunt illos in custodia publica
But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,
angelus autem Domini per noctem aperiens ianuas carceris et educens eos dixit
Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
ite et stantes loquimini in templo plebi omnia verba vitae huius
And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.
qui cum audissent intraverunt diluculo in templum et docebant adveniens autem princeps sacerdotum et qui cum eo erant convocaverunt concilium et omnes seniores filiorum Israhel et miserunt in carcerem ut adducerentur
But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told,
cum venissent autem ministri et aperto carcere non invenissent illos reversi nuntiaverunt
Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.
dicentes carcerem quidem invenimus clausum cum omni diligentia et custodes stantes ad ianuas aperientes autem neminem intus invenimus
Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.
ut audierunt autem hos sermones magistratus templi et principes sacerdotum ambigebant de illis quidnam fieret
Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.
adveniens autem quidam nuntiavit eis quia ecce viri quos posuistis in carcere sunt in templo stantes et docentes populum
Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.
tunc abiit magistratus cum ministris et adduxit illos sine vi timebant enim populum ne lapidarentur
And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,
et cum adduxissent illos statuerunt in concilio et interrogavit eos princeps sacerdotum
Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.
dicens praecipiendo praecepimus vobis ne doceretis in nomine isto et ecce replestis Hierusalem doctrina vestra et vultis inducere super nos sanguinem hominis istius
Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
respondens autem Petrus et apostoli dixerunt oboedire oportet Deo magis quam hominibus
The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
Deus patrum nostrorum suscitavit Iesum quem vos interemistis suspendentes in ligno
Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
hunc Deus principem et salvatorem exaltavit dextera sua ad dandam paenitentiam Israhel et remissionem peccatorum
And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
et nos sumus testes horum verborum et Spiritus Sanctus quem dedit Deus omnibus oboedientibus sibi
When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.
haec cum audissent dissecabantur et cogitabant interficere illos
Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;
surgens autem quidam in concilio Pharisaeus nomine Gamalihel legis doctor honorabilis universae plebi iussit foras ad breve homines fieri
And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.
dixitque ad illos viri israhelitae adtendite vobis super hominibus istis quid acturi sitis
For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.
ante hos enim dies extitit Theodas dicens esse se aliquem cui consensit virorum numerus circiter quadringentorum qui occisus est et omnes quicumque credebant ei dissipati sunt et redactus est ad nihilum
After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.
post hunc extitit Iudas Galilaeus in diebus professionis et avertit populum post se et ipse periit et omnes quotquot consenserunt ei dispersi sunt
And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:
et nunc itaque dico vobis discedite ab hominibus istis et sinite illos quoniam si est ex hominibus consilium hoc aut opus dissolvetur
But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
si vero ex Deo est non poteritis dissolvere eos ne forte et Deo repugnare inveniamini consenserunt autem illi
And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
et convocantes apostolos caesis denuntiaverunt ne loquerentur in nomine Iesu et dimiserunt eos
And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
et illi quidem ibant gaudentes a conspectu concilii quoniam digni habiti sunt pro nomine Iesu contumeliam pati
And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
omni autem die in templo et circa domos non cessabant docentes et evangelizantes Christum Iesum
