15 Bible Verses about Greed

King James VersionEnglish Standard Version
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
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.But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
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.And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
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.For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.All day long he craves and craves, but the righteous gives and does not hold back.
Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist.
As 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.As he came from his mother's womb he shall go again, naked as he came, and shall take nothing for his toil that he may carry away in his hand.
Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain!
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.No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints.But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.
For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing.
