Acts 5:3

Context
5:3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled 1  your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back for yourself part of the proceeds from the sale of 2  the land?

1 sn This is a good example of the Greek verb fill (πληρόω, plhrow) meaning “to exercise control over someone’s thought and action” (cf. Eph 5:18).

2 tn The words “from the sale of” are not in the Greek text, but are supplied to clarify the meaning, since the phrase “proceeds from the land” could possibly be understood as crops rather than money from the sale.
