THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

6:10And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,

6:11And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;

6:12Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

8:10When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.

8:11Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

8:12Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;

8:13And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

8:14Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;

8:15Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;

8:16Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;

8:17And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.

8:18But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

31:20For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.

32:15But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

1 Samuel (Author Compiled by Isaiah from records of Samuel, David, Nathan, and Gad.)

10:22The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

11:4Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

11:28He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

13:7There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

13:8The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.

14:24The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly.

15:6In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

15:16Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.

15:17Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

16:8Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.

19:4Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

21:6The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

23:4Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

23:5Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

27:23Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.

27:24For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation?

28:8He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

5:9Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.

5:10He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

5:11When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?

5:12The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.

5:13There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.

5:14But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.

5:15As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.

5:16And this also is a sore evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind?

5:17All his days also he eateth in darkness, and he hath much sorrow and wrath with his sickness.

5:18Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.

5:19Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.

5:20For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart.

6:1There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:

6:2A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.

7:11Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.

7:12For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.

10:19A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

5:8Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!

Matthew (Author Matthew)

6:19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

6:20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

6:21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

13:22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

19:16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

19:17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

19:18He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19:19Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

19:20The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

19:21Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

19:22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

19:23Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

19:24And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

19:25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

19:26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

19:27Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

19:28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

19:29And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Mark (Author John Mark)

4:19And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

10:17And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

10:18And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

10:19Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

10:20And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

10:21Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

10:22And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

10:23And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

10:24And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

10:25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Luke (Author Luke)

12:15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

18:18And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

18:19And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

18:20Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

18:21And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

18:22Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

18:23And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

18:24And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

18:25For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

6:4He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

6:5Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

6:6But godliness with contentment is great gain.

6:7For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

6:8And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

6:9But 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.

6:10For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

6:11But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

6:17Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

6:18That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

6:19Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

James (Author James)

2:6But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

2:7Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

5:1Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

5:2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

5:3Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

5:4Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

5:5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

1 John (Author John)

3:17But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
