For what will it profit a man if he should gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or he will hold to one, and disparage the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or greed, shall not even be named among you as befits the sanctified,
Weary not thyself to be rich. Out of thine own wisdom, cease.
But those who want to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful lusts, which sink men in destruction and ruin.
Put to death therefore your body-parts on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry.
And he said to them, Watch, and keep away from greed, because to any man, life to him is not in the abundance of things possessed by him.
Incline my heart to thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
There is he who covets greedily all the day long, but the righteous gives and does not withhold.
For because of this ye also fulfill taxes, for they are servants of God being devoted to this same thing.
For the love of money is a root of all the evils, of which some aspiring have wandered from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
As he came forth from his mother's womb, naked shall he go again as he came, and shall take nothing for his labor, which he may carry away in his hand.
He who loves silver shall not be satisfied with silver, nor he who loves abundance, with increase. This also is vanity.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust deteriorates, and where thieves break through and steal,
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust deteriorates, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished, but he who gathers by labor shall have increase.
