5:3Then sayde Peter: Ananias how is it that Satan hath filled thyne hert that thou shuldest lye vnto the holy goost and kepe awaye parte of the pryce of the lyvelod:
5:4Pertayned it not vnto the only and after it was solde was not the pryce in thyne awne power? How is it that thou hast coceaved this thinge in thyne herte? Thou hast not lyed vnto men but vnto God.
5:5When Ananias herde these wordes. he fell doune and gave vp the goost. And great feare came on all the that these thinges hearde.
5:6And the yonge men roose vp and put him a parte and caryed him out and buryed him.
5:7And it fortuned as it were aboute the space of .iii. houres after that his wyfe came in ignoraunt of that which was done.
5:8And Peter sayde vnto her: Tell me gave ye the londe for so moche? And she sayde: ye for so moche
5:9Then Peter sayde vnto her: why have ye agreed to gether to tept the sprete of the Lorde? Beholde the fete of them which have buryed thy husbande are at the dore and shall cary the out.
5:10Then she fell doune strayght waye at his fete and yelded vp the goost. And the yonge men came in and founde her ded and caryed her out and buryed her by her husbande.
5:11And great feare came on all the congregacion and on as many as hearde it.
5:12By the hondes of the Apostles were many signes and wondres shewed amoge the people. And they were all together with one acorde in Salomons porche.
5:13And of other durst no man ioyne him selfe to them: neverthelater the people magnyfied them.
5:14The noumbre of them that beleved in the Lorde bothe of men and wemen grewe moare and moare:
5:15in so moche that they brought the sicke into the strettes and layde them on beddes and palettes that at the lest waye the shadowe of Peter when he came by myght shadowe some of them.
5:16There came also a multitude out of ye cities roud about vnto Ierusalem bringynge sicke folkes and them which were vexed with vnclene spretes. And they were healed every one.
5:17Then ye chefe preste rose vp and all they that were with him (which is the secte of the Saduces) and were full of indignacion
5:18and layde hondes on the Apostles and put them in the comen preson.
5:19But the angell of the Lorde by nyght openned the preson dores and brought them forthe and sayde:
5:20goo steppe forthe and speake in the temple to the people all the wordes of this lyfe.
5:21When they hearde that they entred into the temple erly in the morninge and taught. The chefe prest came and they that were with him and called a counsell to gedder and all the elders of the chyldren of Israel and sent to the preson to fet them.
5:22When the ministres came and founde them not in the preson they returned and tolde
5:23sayinge: the preson founde we shut as sure as was possible and the kepers stondynge with out before ye dores. But whe we had opened we founde no man with in.
5:24When the chefe prest of all and the ruler of the temple and the hye prestes hearde these thinges they douted of them whervnto this wolde growe.
5:25Then came one and shewed them: beholde ye men yt ye put in preson stonde in the teple and teache the people.
5:26Then went the ruler of the teple with ministers and brought the with out violence. For they feared the people lest they shuld have bene stoned.
5:27And when they had brought them they set them before the counsell. And ye chefe preste axed the
5:28sayinge: dyd not we straytely comaunde you that ye shuld not teache in this name? And beholde ye have filled Ierusalem with youre doctrine and ye intende to brynge this mans bloud vpon vs.
5:29Peter and the other Apostles answered and sayde: We ought moare to obey God then men.
5:30The God of oure fathers raysed vp Ie Iesus whom ye slewe and hanged on tre.
5:31Him hath god lifte vp with his right hand to be a ruler and a savioure for to geve repetauce to Israell and forgevenes of synnes.
5:32And we are his recordes concernynge these thinges and also the holy goost whom God hath geve to them yt obey him.
5:33When they hearde yt they clave asunder: and sought meanes to slee them.
5:34Then stode ther vp one in ye counsell a Pharisey named Gamaliel a doctoure of lawe had in auctorite amoge all the people and commaunded to put the Apostles a syde a lytell space
5:35and sayde vnto them: Men of Israel take hede to youre selves what ye entende to do as touchinge these men
5:36Before these dayes rose vp one Theudas bostinge him selfe to whom resorted a nombre of men about a foure hondred which was slayn and they all which beleved him were scatred a broode and brought to nought.
5:37After this man arose ther vp one Iudas of Galile in the tyme when tribute began and drewe awaye moche people after him. He also perisshed: and all even as many as harkened to him are scattered a brood.
5:38And now I saye vnto you: refrayne youre selves from these men let them alone. For yf ye cousell or this worke be of men it will come to nought.
5:39But and yf it be of God ye can not destroye it lest haply ye be founde to stryve agaynst God.
5:40And to him they agreed and called the Apostles and bet them and comaunded that they shuld not speake in ye name of Iesu and let them goo.
5:41And they departed from the counsell reioysynge yt they were counted worthy to soffre rebuke for his name.
5:42And dayly in the teple and in every housse they ceased not teachinge and preachinge Iesus Christ.

William Tyndale Bible 1534

William Tyndale was the first man to ever print the New Testament in the English language. Tyndale also went on to be the first to translate much of the Old Testament from the original Hebrew into English, but he was executed in 1536 for the "crime" of printing the scriptures in English before he could personally complete the printing of an entire Bible. His friends Myles Coverdale, and John [Thomas Matthew] Rogers, managed to evade arrest and publish entire Bibles in the English language for the first time, and within one year of Tyndale's death. These Bibles were primarily the work of William Tyndale.
