Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you. Then Solomon sat on the throne. Then he [David] died in a ripe old age, full of days, riches and honor. And I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings who were before you has possessed, nor those who will come after you 2 Chronicles So King Solomon became greater than all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom 2 Chronicles The Philistines brought gifts and silver as tribute to Jehoshaphat; the Arabians also brought him flocks, 7, rams and 7, male goats.
So Jehoshaphat grew greater and greater. Now Hezekiah had immense riches and honor; and he made for himself treasuries for silver, gold, precious stones, spices, shields and all kinds of valuable articles, storehouses also for the produce of grain, wine and oil, pens for all kinds of cattle and sheepfolds for the flocks. And he made cities for himself, and acquired flocks and herds in abundance; for God had given him very great wealth.
Hezekiah prospered in all that he did 2 Chronicles They captured fortified cities and a fertile land. They took possession of houses full of every good thing, hewn cisterns, vineyards, olive groves, fruit trees in abundance. So they ate, were filled, and grew fat, and reveled in Your great goodness Nehemiah His [Job] possessions also were 7, sheep, 3, camels, yoke of oxen, female donkeys, and very many servants; and that man was the greatest of all the men of the east Job Then the king caused Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego to prosper in the province of Babylon Daniel There came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus Matthew You are already filled, you have already become rich.
Not that I speak from want; for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction. I have received everything in full, and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent.
The Lord be magnified, who delights in the prosperity of His servant Psalm They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated men of whom the world was not worthy , wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground. And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they should not be made perfect Hebrews Proverbs Things that will keep you from wealth He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; he who loves wine and oil will not become rich.
He who oppresses the poor to make much for himself or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty Proverbs By your great wisdom, by your trade you have increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches Ezekiel Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God. Rich should not be proud because life is short But let the brother of humble circumstances glory in his high position; and let the rich man glory in his humiliation, because like flowering grass he will pass away.
For the sun rises with a scorching wind, and withers the grass; and its flower falls off, and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away James Those who trust in riches Why should I fear in days of adversity, when the iniquity of my foes surrounds me, even those who trust in their wealth, and boast in the abundance of their riches? No man can by any means redeem his brother, or give to God a ransom for him — for the redemption of his soul is costly.
Their inner thought is, that their houses are forever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they have called their lands after their own names. But man in his pomp will not endure; he is like the beasts that perish Psalm And the land could not sustain them while dwelling together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to remain together.
Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me; if to the left, then I will go to the right; or if to the right, then I will go to the left. So Lot chose for himself all the valley of the Jordan. Thus they separated from each other Genesis And the Lord blessed him, and the man became rich, and continued to grow richer until he became very wealthy; for he had possessions of flocks and herds and a great household, so that the Philistines envied him. Then Esau took his wives and his sons and his daughters and all his household, and his livestock and all his cattle and all his goods which he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and went to another land away from his brother Jacob.
For the property had become too great for them to live together, and the land where they sojourned could not sustain them because of their livestock Genesis Woe to those who add house to house and join field to field, until there is no more room, so that you have to live alone in the midst of the land! Isaiah Riches can separate Christians When you come together as a church, I hear that divisions exist among you. Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God, and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you?
In this I will not praise you 1 Corinthians And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns, this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful Matthew , Behold, the sower went out to sow. And other seed fell among the thorns; and the thorns grew up with it, and choked it out. It is easier for a camel to go thorough the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Rich who do not know Lord will be separated from God for eternity There was a certain rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, gaily living in splendor every day. And in Hades he lifted up eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away, and Lazarus in his bosom. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court? Do they not blaspheme the fair name by which you have been called? James For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you shall eat food without scarcity, in which you shall not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper.
When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you. Beware lest you forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments and His ordinances and His statutes which I am commanding you today; lest, when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built good houses and lived in them, and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies, then your heart becomes proud, and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
He led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water; He brought water for you out of the rock of flint. In the wilderness He fed you manna which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do good for you in the end. For when I bring them into the land flowing with milk and honey, which I swore to their fathers, and they have eaten and are satisfied and become prosperous, then they will turn to other gods and serve them, and spurn Me and break My covenant Deuteronomy But the full stomach of the rich man does not allow him to sleep Ecclesiastes Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you.
Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter James Do not fret because of evildoers, be not envious toward wrongdoers. For they will wither quickly like the grass, and fade like the green herb.
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes. Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; and you will look carefully for his place, and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land, and will delight themselves in abundant prosperity Psalm , 7, Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart!
But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling; my steps had almost slipped. For I was envious of the arrogant, as I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They are not in trouble as other men; nor are they plagued like mankind.
Therefore pride is their necklace; the garment of violence covers them. And is there knowledge with the Most High? Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure, and washed my hands in innocence; for I have been stricken all day long, and chastened every morning. When I pondered to understand this, it was troublesome in my sight until I came into the sanctuary of God; then I perceived their end.
Surely You do set them in slippery places; You do cast them down to destruction. How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors! Like a dream when one awakes, O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their form Psalm Righteous are You, O Lord, that I would plead my case with You; indeed I would discuss matters of justice with You; why has the way of the wicked prospered? Why are all those who deal in treachery at ease? You have planted them, they have also taken root; they grow, they have even produced fruit. You are near to their lips but far from their mind Jeremiah Then Haman recounted to them the glory of his riches.
Esther Their [Israel] land has also been filled with silver and gold, and there is no end to their treasures; their land has also been filled with horses, and there is no end to their chariots Isaiah When your [Tyre] wares went out from the seas, you satisfied many peoples; with the abundance of your wealth and your merchandise you enriched the kings of earth Ezekiel Daniel Ezra And the Levite agreed to live with the man; and the young man became to him like one of his sons.
So Micah consecrated the Levite, and the young man became his priest and lived in the house of Micah. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it Matthew O you [Babylon] who dwell by many waters, abundant in treasures, your end has come, the measure of your end Jeremiah Tarshish was your customer because of the abundance of all kinds of wealth; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they paid for your wares.

They traded with you in choice garments, in cloths of blue and embroidered work, and in carpets of many colors, and tightly wound cords, which were among your merchandise. The ships of Tarshish were the carriers for your merchandise.
Your wealth, your wares, your merchandise, your sailors, and your pilots, your repairers of seams, your dealers in merchandise. Israel is a luxuriant vine; he produces fruit for himself. The more his fruit, the more altars he made; the richer his land, the better he made the sacred pillars. Their heart is faithless; now they must bear their guilt. The Lord will break down their altars and destroy their sacred pillars Hosea Zephaniah , 13, For Tyre built herself a fortress and piled up silver like dust, and gold like the mire of the streets.
