1QS 6

Community Rule
Dead Sea Scrolls

7 If one of them has lied deliberately in matters of property, he shall be excluded from the pure Meal of the Congregation for one year an shall do penance with respect to one quarter of his food. Whoever has answered his companion with obstinacy, or ha addressed him impatiently, going so far as to take no account of the dignity of his fellow by disobeying the order of a brother inscribe before him, he has taken the law into his own hand; therefore he shall do penance for one year [and shall be excluded]

Acts 5:2

New Testament

1 Now a man named Ananias, together with Sapphira his wife, sold a piece of property. 2 He kept back for himself part of the proceeds with his wife’s knowledge; he brought only part of it and placed it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back for yourself part of the proceeds from the sale of the land? 4 Before it was sold, did it not belong to you? And when it was sold, was the money not at your disposal? How have you thought up this deed in your heart? You have not lied to people but to God!” 5 When Ananias heard these words he collapsed and died, and great fear gripped all who heard about it. 6 So the young men came, wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.
