Your silver perish with you

From the Acts of the Apostoles

When the apostles at Jerusalem heard that many Samaritans had received the word of God and been baptised, but that the Holy Spirit had not yet fallen on any of them, they sent Peter and John. The two laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. When Simon saw this, he offered them money. "Give me this power, "he said, "that any one on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit."

Peter said to Simon "Your silver will perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money. Repent and pray to the Lord that, if possible, this may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and the bond of iniquity."
