Old Testament

Luke 16:9,11,13
9I tell you, make friends for yourselves with unrighteous mammon,[] so that when it runs out, they will welcome you into the eternal dwellings.
11So if you have not been faithful with unrighteous mammon, who will entrust you with what is really valuable?
13No servant can serve two masters. Indeed, either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon.”


  • 16:9 Mammon, is an Aramaic word that is transliterated in the Greek. It refers to worldly wealth (sometimes personified). It also appears in verses 11 and 13, and Matthew 6:24. It may also be translated money, but a different word for money is used in verse 14.
