For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. All of you cannot serve God and mammon.
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints;
Labour not to be rich: cease from yours own wisdom.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.
Incline my heart unto your testimonies, and not to covetousness.
He covers greedily all the day long: but the righteous gives and spares not.
For for this cause pay all of you tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust does corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Wealth got by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathers by labour shall increase.
