Bible Verses about Greed

«Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied… Ecclesiastes 5:10»
Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.مَنْ يُحِبُّ ٱلْفِضَّةَ لَا يَشْبَعُ مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ، وَمَنْ يُحِبُّ ٱلثَّرْوَةَ لَا يَشْبَعُ مِنْ دَخْلٍ. هَذَا أَيْضًا بَاطِلٌ.
Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.وَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يَكُونُوا أَغْنِيَاءَ، فَيَسْقُطُونَ فِي تَجْرِبَةٍ وَفَخٍّ وَشَهَوَاتٍ كَثِيرَةٍ غَبِيَّةٍ وَمُضِرَّةٍ، تُغَرِّقُ ٱلنَّاسَ فِي ٱلْعَطَبِ وَٱلْهَلَاكِ.
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱنْظُرُوا وَتَحَفَّظُوا مِنَ ٱلطَّمَعِ، فَإِنَّهُ مَتَى كَانَ لِأَحَدٍ كَثِيرٌ فَلَيْسَتْ حَيَاتُهُ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِ».
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.لِأَنَّ مَحَبَّةَ ٱلْمَالِ أَصْلٌ لِكُلِّ ٱلشُّرُورِ، ٱلَّذِي إِذِ ٱبْتَغَاهُ قَوْمٌ ضَلُّوا عَنِ ٱلْإِيمَانِ، وَطَعَنُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ بِأَوْجَاعٍ كَثِيرَةٍ.
What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?لِأَنَّهُ مَاذَا يَنْتَفِعُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ لَوْ رَبِحَ ٱلْعَالَمَ كُلَّهُ وَخَسِرَ نَفْسَهُ؟
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.لَا تَكْنِزُوا لَكُمْ كُنُوزًا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ حَيْثُ يُفْسِدُ ٱلسُّوسُ وَٱلصَّدَأُ، وَحَيْثُ يَنْقُبُ ٱلسَّارِقُونَ وَيَسْرِقُونَ. بَلِ ٱكْنِزُوا لَكُمْ كُنُوزًا فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ، حَيْثُ لَا يُفْسِدُ سُوسٌ وَلَا صَدَأٌ، وَحَيْثُ لَا يَنْقُبُ سَارِقُونَ وَلَا يَسْرِقُونَ.
Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.غِنَى ٱلْبُطْلِ يَقِلُّ، وَٱلْجَامِعُ بِيَدِهِ يَزْدَادُ.
All day long he craves for more, but the righteous give without sparing.اَلْيَوْمَ كُلَّهُ يَشْتَهِي شَهْوَةً، أَمَّا ٱلصِّدِّيقُ فَيُعْطِي وَلَا يُمْسِكُ.
Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.كَمَا خَرَجَ مِنْ بَطْنِ أُمِّهِ عُرْيَانًا يَرْجِعُ ذَاهِبًا كَمَا جَاءَ، وَلَا يَأْخُذُ شَيْئًا مِنْ تَعَبِهِ فَيَذْهَبُ بِهِ فِي يَدِهِ.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness.لَا تَتْعَبْ لِكَيْ تَصِيرَ غَنِيًّا. كُفَّ عَنْ فِطْنَتِكَ.
Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.أَمِلْ قَلْبِي إِلَى شَهَادَاتِكَ، لَا إِلَى ٱلْمَكْسَبِ.
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.لَا يَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَخْدِمَ سَيِّدَيْنِ، لِأَنَّهُ إِمَّا أَنْ يُبْغِضَ ٱلْوَاحِدَ وَيُحِبَّ ٱلْآخَرَ، أَوْ يُلَازِمَ ٱلْوَاحِدَ وَيَحْتَقِرَ ٱلْآخَرَ. لَا تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ تَخْدِمُوا ٱللهَ وَٱلْمَالَ.
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.فَأَمِيتُوا أَعْضَاءَكُمُ ٱلَّتِي عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ: ٱلزِّنَا، ٱلنَّجَاسَةَ، ٱلْهَوَى، ٱلشَّهْوَةَ ٱلرَّدِيَّةَ، ٱلطَّمَعَ -ٱلَّذِي هُوَ عِبَادَةُ ٱلْأَوْثَانِ.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.فَإِنَّكُمْ لِأَجْلِ هَذَا تُوفُونَ ٱلْجِزْيَةَ أَيْضًا، إِذْ هُمْ خُدَّامُ ٱللهِ مُوَاظِبُونَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ بِعَيْنِهِ.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.وَأَمَّا ٱلزِّنَا وَكُلُّ نَجَاسَةٍ أَوْ طَمَعٍ فَلَا يُسَمَّ بَيْنَكُمْ كَمَا يَلِيقُ بِقِدِّيسِينَ.
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.أَمْ لَسْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ ٱلظَّالِمِينَ لَا يَرِثُونَ مَلَكُوتَ ٱللهِ؟ لَا تَضِلُّوا: لَا زُنَاةٌ وَلَا عَبَدَةُ أَوْثَانٍ وَلَا فَاسِقُونَ وَلَا مَأْبُونُونَ وَلَا مُضَاجِعُو ذُكُورٍ، وَلَا سَارِقُونَ وَلَا طَمَّاعُونَ وَلَا سِكِّيرُونَ وَلَا شَتَّامُونَ وَلَا خَاطِفُونَ يَرِثُونَ مَلَكُوتَ ٱللهِ.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.لَا تَشْتَهِ بَيْتَ قَرِيبِكَ. لَا تَشْتَهِ ٱمْرَأَةَ قَرِيبِكَ، وَلَا عَبْدَهُ، وَلَا أَمَتَهُ، وَلَا ثَوْرَهُ، وَلَا حِمَارَهُ، وَلَا شَيْئًا مِمَّا لِقَرِيبِكَ.

Random Bible Verse

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.
