So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

Isaiah55:2 No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will bedevoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.Matthew 6:24Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. Heoverturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.Matthew 21:12A man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. Toone he gave five talents [more than $1000] of money, to another two talents, and toanother one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work andgained five more. So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. But the man
who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master'smoney.After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. `Master,' he said, `youentrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.' "His master replied, `Welldone, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put youin charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'"The man with the two talents also came. `Master,' he said, `you entrusted me with twotalents; see, I have gained two more.' "His master replied, `Well done, good and faithfulservant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of manythings. Come and share your master's happiness!'"Then the man who had received the one talent came. `Master,' he said, `I knew that youare a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have notscattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here iswhat belongs to you.'"His master replied, `You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I havenot sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put mymoney on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. "Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever doesnot have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servantoutside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.Matthew 25:14-30When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized withremorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders. "I havesinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood." "What is that to us?" they replied."That's your responsibility."So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hangedhimself. The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "It is against the law to put thisinto the treasury, since it is blood money." So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day.Matthew 27:3-8
