 About Money..

1. The deceitfulness of riches, choke the Word... (Mt. 13:22b).

2. In the last days....men shall be...covetous [literally, lovers of money],....having a form of godliness...from such turn away (2 Tim. 3:1-5).

3. Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content (1 Tim. 6:7-8).

4. ...Men...destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself (1 Tim. 6:5).

5. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another (Rm. 13:8a).

6. The borrower is servant [slave] to the lender (Prov. 22:7b).

7. A man void of understanding striketh hands [in pledge], and becometh surety [a co-signer] in the presence of his friend (Prov. 17:18).

8. Be not thou one of them that strike hands [in pledge], or of them that are sureties [co-signers] for debts (Prov. 22:26).

9. He [a righteous man]...putteth not out his money to usury [interest] (Ps. 15:5).

10. He that by usury [interest] and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor (Prov. 28:8).

11. If a man be just, and...[practices justice and righteousness]...and...hath not given forth upon usury [interest], neither hath taken any increase...he is just [righteous].... (Ez. 18:5-9).

12. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth...but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven (Mt. 6:19-20a).

13. Fear not, little flock....Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not....For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Lk. 12:32-34).

14. Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple....He that hath ears to hear, let him hear (Lk. 14:33, 35b).

15. And all that believed...sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need....Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold...and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need (Acts 2:44; 4:34-35).

16. Be kindly affectioned one to another in brotherly love...distributing to the necessity of saints (Rm. 12:10-13).

17. If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? (Jm. 2:15-16).

18. Whoso hath this world's good[s], and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?...let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth (1 Jn. 3:17-18).

19. If you lend to them of whom ye hope to receive [repayment], what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again [repayment]. But...lend [give], hoping for nothing again [without repayment of principle or interest]; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest.... (Lk. 6:34-35).

20. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth (Col. 3:2).

21. Having food and raiment [clothing] let us be therewith content (1 Tim. 6:8).

22. Let your conversation [character] be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have (Heb. 13:5a).

23. To do good and to communicate [share] forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased (Heb. 13:16).

24. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth (Eph. 4:28).

25. ...Labouring ye ought to support the weak...It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).

26. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world (1 Jn. 2:15a).

27. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [money] (Mt. 6:24b).

28. Woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation (Lk. 6:24).

29. That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God (Lk. 16:15b).

30. How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 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 (Lk. 18:24-25).

31. 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 (1 Tim. 6:9).

32. 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 (1 Tim. 6:10).

33. Them that are rich in this world...[should not be], high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate [share]; laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life (1 Tim. 6:17-19).

34. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? (Mt. 16:26a).

35. Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: but the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away (Jm. 1:9-10).

36. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts (Jm. 4:3).

37. Ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your 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 (Jm. 5:1-3).

38. Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again (Lk. 6:38).

39. He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver (2 Cor. 9:6-7).

40. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy from me [Jesus] gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be [spiritually] rich (Rev. 3:17-18a).
