Personal Finance in the Bible: Legal/Government

Filed under: Personal Finance in the Bible,Taxes — Paul Williams @ Crackerjack Greenback @ 4:00 am

Bible with Cross Shadow by knowhimonline on Flickr       This is another quick update to let you know that I have added all the verses I’ve found on Legal/Government in the Bible as they relate to personal finance. You can find them on the Personal Finance in the Bible page. Just scroll down and click on the category to see all the Scripture references. Click the Scripture reference if you’d like to read the verse (opens in a new window). The Legal/Government category includes sub-categories of bribes, taxes, and lawsuits.

       That brings the total number of verses in the Bible about personal finance to 657! I still have many verses to add, so we’ll see how close we get to the oft-quoted 2,000 number. I’m not just looking for verses that merely mention money but for those verses that teach us how God wants us to handle our finances. Keep checking in, and I’ll continue to update you as I add more!


  1. Wow… I had no idea there were that many verses about personal finance in the bible. That’s great!

  2. Yep, and I’m not finished yet! I expect there will be at least 1,000 verses that actually talk about personal finance (and not merely mentioning money).

  4. Just wondering where the oft mentioned 2,000 number comes from? Where is often mentioned? It is interesting that the bible offers us information about how to manage our finances. I’m sure not thinking about it day and night and making it our highest priority (ie., getting rich) are key points made!
