EXO 18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as

fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be

rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of


EXO 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy

neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his

ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

DEU 5:21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou

covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant,

his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.

NEH 5:7 Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers,

and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great

assembly against them.

JOB 20:15 He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God

shall cast them out of his belly.

JOB 31:24 If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art

my confidence;

JOB 31:25 If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had

gotten much;

JOB 31:28 This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should

have denied the God that is above.

PSA 10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the

covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

PSA 119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

PRO 1:19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away

the life of the owners thereof.

PRO 11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that

withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.

PRO 11:26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing

shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.

PRO 15:27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth

gifts shall live.

PRO 21:25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to


PRO 21:26 He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and

spareth not.

PRO 22:16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that

giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.

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

PRO 30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor

riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

PRO 30:9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be

poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.

ECC 1:8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not

satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

ECC 4:8 There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither

child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye

satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my

soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.

ECC 5:10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that

loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

ECC 5:11 When 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?

ISA 1:23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one

loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless,

neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

ISA 5:8 Woe 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!

ISA 56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are

shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for

his gain, from his quarter.

ISA 57:17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I

hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.

JER 6:13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is

given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one

dealeth falsely.

JER 8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to

them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the

greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every

one dealeth falsely.

JER 17:11 As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that

getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and

at his end shall be a fool.

JER 22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and

for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.

JER 51:13 O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine

end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness.

EZE 22:12 In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury

and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and

hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 22:13 Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand at thy dishonest gain

which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee.

EZE 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before

thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with

their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

HOS 4:18 Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her

rulers with shame do love, Give ye.

HOS 10:1 Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit unto himself:

according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars; according

to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images.

MIC 2:2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take

them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

MIC 3:11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for

hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the

LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.

MIC 7:3 That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and

the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous

desire: so they wrap it up.

HAB 1:15 They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net,

and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.

HAB 1:16 Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their

drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.

HAB 2:5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither

keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot

be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all


HAB 2:6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting

proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his!

how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!

HAB 2:7 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that

shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them?

HAB 2:8 Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people

shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of

the city, and of all that dwell therein.

HAB 2:9 Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may

set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil!

HAG 1:6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough;

ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none

warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

MAL 1:10 Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought?

neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you,

saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.

MAT 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust

doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

MAT 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor

rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

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

MAT 6:24 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. Ye

cannot serve God and mammon.

MAT 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall

eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not

the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

MAT 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall

we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

MAT 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly

Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

MAT 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all

these things shall be added unto you.

MAT 13:22 He 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.

MAT 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and

lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

MAT 19:24 And 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.

MAT 22:5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm,

another to his merchandise:

MAR 4:19 And 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.

MAR 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts,

adulteries, fornications, murders,

LUK 7:14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still.

And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

LUK 12:15 And 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.

LUK 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax

not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth,

neither moth corrupteth.

LUK 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

LUK 14:18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said

unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I

pray thee have me excused.

LUK 18:24 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly

shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

LUK 18:25 For 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.

JOH 6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek

me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and

were filled.

JOH 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which

endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for

him hath God the Father sealed.

ROM 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness,

covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;


ROM 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou

shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if

there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying,

namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

1CO 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that

is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer,

or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

1CO 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor

extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

EPH 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be

once named among you, as becometh saints;

PHI 3:18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even

weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

PHI 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is

in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

COL 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

COL 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication,

uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which

is idolatry:

COL 3:6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of


1TH 2:5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a

cloke of covetousness; God is witness:

1TI 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient,

not a brawler, not covetous;

1TI 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the

truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

1TI 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

1TI 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry

nothing out.

1TI 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

1TI 6:9 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.

1TI 6:10 For 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.

1TI 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after

righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

1TI 6:17 Charge 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;

2TI 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

TIT 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled,

not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

TIT 1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching

things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

HEB 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with

such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake


JAM 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain:

ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

JAM 4:13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a

city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

JAM 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your

life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth


1PE 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof,

not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

2PE 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise

of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation

slumbereth not.

2PE 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin;

beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices;

cursed children:

1JO 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any

man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
