“Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous . . . Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;”
1 Timothy 3:3, 8, KJV

“For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre . . . Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.”
Titus 1:7, 11, KJV

“Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;”
1 Peter 5:2, KJV

Note: According to Thayer’s Greek English Lexicon, the phrase “filthy lucre” is derived from the Koine Greek word “aischrokerdes”, the definition of which is “eager for base gain, greedy for money”.
