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 have made gold my hope or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence;
Surely man walks in darkness; surely they are disquieted in vain; they heap up riches not knowing who shall gather them.
Trust not in violence and become not vain in the taking of spoil; if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
Riches shall not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness shall deliver from death.
How much better is it to acquire wisdom than gold! and to acquire understanding is worth more than silver!
Wilt thou set thine eyes upon riches which are not? For they shall certainly make themselves wings; they shall fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
For God gives to the man that is good in his sight wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to the one that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
He that loves money shall not be satisfied with money; nor he that loves abundance with increase; this is also vanity.
Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath, but the whole earth shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy; for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all those that dwell in the earth.
So is he that lays up treasure for himself and is not rich in God.
And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How difficult it is for those that have riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
1 Timothy 6:8
So that, sustenance and covering, let us be content with this.
Let your conversation be without covetousness, and be content with such things as ye have; for he has said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Come now, Oh ye rich, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
1 John 2:15
Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the charity of the Father is not in him.
