45 Bible Verses about Money (2/2)

English Standard Version (ESV)
For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
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.

but the righteous is generous and gives.

The rich rules over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
Better is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
he brings low and he exalts.
And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
The ransom of a man's life is his wealth,
but a poor man hears no threat.
As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.
When goods increase, they increase who eat them, and what advantage has their owner but to see them with his eyes?
As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.
You shall not make gods of silver to be with me, nor shall you make for yourselves gods of gold.
Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away.
