Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
If I made gold my hope, or if I ever said to the best gold, I have put my faith in you;
Truly, every man goes on his way like an image; he is troubled for no purpose: he makes a great store of wealth, and has no knowledge of who will get it.
Have no faith in the rewards of evil-doing, or in profits wrongly made: if your wealth is increased, do not put your hopes on it.
Wealth is of no profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness keeps a man safe from death.
How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! and to get knowledge is more to be desired than silver.
Are your eyes lifted up to it? it is gone: for wealth takes to itself wings, like an eagle in flight up to heaven.
To the man with whom he is pleased, God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy; but to the sinner he gives the work of getting goods together and storing up wealth, to give to him in whom God has pleasure. This again is to no purpose and desire for wind.
He who has a love for silver never has enough silver, or he who has love for wealth, enough profit. This again is to no purpose.
Even their silver and their gold will not be able to keep them safe in the day of the Lord's wrath; but all the land will be burned up in the fire of his bitter wrath: for he will put an end, even suddenly, to all who are living in the land.
So that is what comes to the man who gets wealth for himself, and has not wealth in the eyes of God.
And Jesus, looking at him, said, How hard it is for those who have wealth to get into the kingdom of God!
1 Timothy 6:8
But if we have food and a roof over us, let that be enough.
Be free from the love of money and pleased with the things which you have; for he himself has said, I will be with you at all times.
Come now, you men of wealth, give yourselves to weeping and crying because of the bitter troubles which are coming to you.
1 John 2:15
Have no love for the world or for the things which are in the world. If any man has love for the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
