Treasury of Scripture

And Peter answered to her, Tell me whether you sold the land for so much? And she said, Yes, for so much.









(8) And Peter answered unto her.--The word does not necessarily imply a previous questioning, but it is probable enough that she came to inquire why her husband had not returned home; perhaps, expecting to find him high in honour. The question asked by Peter gave her an opening for repentance. It had been in her power to save her husband by a word of warning protest. It was now in her power to clear her own conscience by confession. She misses the one opportunity as she had misused the other. The lie which they had agreed upon comes glibly from her lips, and the irrevocable word is spoken.

Verse 8. - And Peter answered, etc., Point's question gave her the opportunity of confessing the fraud had she been penitent. The land (see note to ver. 1).
