NIV KJV ESV NKJV

He who loves silver will not be satisfied with silver; Nor he who loves abundance, with increase. This also is vanity.مَنْ يُحِبُّ ٱلْفِضَّةَ لَا يَشْبَعُ مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ، وَمَنْ يُحِبُّ ٱلثَّرْوَةَ لَا يَشْبَعُ مِنْ دَخْلٍ. هَذَا أَيْضًا بَاطِلٌ.
But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.وَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يَكُونُوا أَغْنِيَاءَ، فَيَسْقُطُونَ فِي تَجْرِبَةٍ وَفَخٍّ وَشَهَوَاتٍ كَثِيرَةٍ غَبِيَّةٍ وَمُضِرَّةٍ، تُغَرِّقُ ٱلنَّاسَ فِي ٱلْعَطَبِ وَٱلْهَلَاكِ.
And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”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, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.لِأَنَّ مَحَبَّةَ ٱلْمَالِ أَصْلٌ لِكُلِّ ٱلشُّرُورِ، ٱلَّذِي إِذِ ٱبْتَغَاهُ قَوْمٌ ضَلُّوا عَنِ ٱلْإِيمَانِ، وَطَعَنُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ بِأَوْجَاعٍ كَثِيرَةٍ.
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?لِأَنَّهُ مَاذَا يَنْتَفِعُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ لَوْ رَبِحَ ٱلْعَالَمَ كُلَّهُ وَخَسِرَ نَفْسَهُ؟
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.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.
Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, But he who gathers by labor will increase.غِنَى ٱلْبُطْلِ يَقِلُّ، وَٱلْجَامِعُ بِيَدِهِ يَزْدَادُ.
He covets greedily all day long, But the righteous gives and does not spare.اَلْيَوْمَ كُلَّهُ يَشْتَهِي شَهْوَةً، أَمَّا ٱلصِّدِّيقُ فَيُعْطِي وَلَا يُمْسِكُ.
Do not overwork to be rich; Because of your own understanding, cease!لَا تَتْعَبْ لِكَيْ تَصِيرَ غَنِيًّا. كُفَّ عَنْ فِطْنَتِكَ.
As he came from his mother’s womb, naked shall he return, To go as he came; And he shall take nothing from his labor Which he may carry away in his hand.كَمَا خَرَجَ مِنْ بَطْنِ أُمِّهِ عُرْيَانًا يَرْجِعُ ذَاهِبًا كَمَا جَاءَ، وَلَا يَأْخُذُ شَيْئًا مِنْ تَعَبِهِ فَيَذْهَبُ بِهِ فِي يَدِهِ.
Incline my heart to Your testimonies, And not to covetousness.أَمِلْ قَلْبِي إِلَى شَهَادَاتِكَ، لَا إِلَى ٱلْمَكْسَبِ.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.لَا يَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَخْدِمَ سَيِّدَيْنِ، لِأَنَّهُ إِمَّا أَنْ يُبْغِضَ ٱلْوَاحِدَ وَيُحِبَّ ٱلْآخَرَ، أَوْ يُلَازِمَ ٱلْوَاحِدَ وَيَحْتَقِرَ ٱلْآخَرَ. لَا تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ تَخْدِمُوا ٱللهَ وَٱلْمَالَ.
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.فَأَمِيتُوا أَعْضَاءَكُمُ ٱلَّتِي عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ: ٱلزِّنَا، ٱلنَّجَاسَةَ، ٱلْهَوَى، ٱلشَّهْوَةَ ٱلرَّدِيَّةَ، ٱلطَّمَعَ -ٱلَّذِي هُوَ عِبَادَةُ ٱلْأَوْثَانِ.
But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints.وَأَمَّا ٱلزِّنَا وَكُلُّ نَجَاسَةٍ أَوْ طَمَعٍ فَلَا يُسَمَّ بَيْنَكُمْ كَمَا يَلِيقُ بِقِدِّيسِينَ.
For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.فَإِنَّكُمْ لِأَجْلِ هَذَا تُوفُونَ ٱلْجِزْيَةَ أَيْضًا، إِذْ هُمْ خُدَّامُ ٱللهِ مُوَاظِبُونَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ بِعَيْنِهِ.
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners 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, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.لَا تَشْتَهِ بَيْتَ قَرِيبِكَ. لَا تَشْتَهِ ٱمْرَأَةَ قَرِيبِكَ، وَلَا عَبْدَهُ، وَلَا أَمَتَهُ، وَلَا ثَوْرَهُ، وَلَا حِمَارَهُ، وَلَا شَيْئًا مِمَّا لِقَرِيبِكَ.
