They Had Everything in Common

Acts 4

32 Now the full number of those who believed were of k one heart and l soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but m they had everything in common. 33 And with great n power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and o great grace was upon them all. 34 p There was not a needy person among them, for q as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold 35 and r laid it at the apostles' feet, and s it was distributed to each as any had need. 36 Thus Joseph, who was also called by the apostles Barnabas (which means t son of encouragement), a Levite, a native of Cyprus, 37 sold a field that belonged to him and brought the money and u laid it at the apostles' feet.
