Ananias and Sapphira

Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession ... And kept back part of the price ...
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? Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost....
Three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
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.
Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost....
And great fear came upon all the church. Acts 5:1
