How Many Times Is Money Mentioned in the Bible?

Money is mentioned 140 times in the King James Version of the Bible. If we include the words gold, silver, wealth, riches, inheritance, debt, poverty, and related topics, it turns out that the Bible pays a great deal of attention to financial matters — more than nearly any other subject.

History

Money and BibleThe word “money” in the Bible refers to gold and silver, the two forms of currency used in that part of the world during Biblical times. Looking at the King James Version, the book also specifically mentions gold 417 times and silver 320 times.

Gold is referenced more often in the Bible than any other metal. It is mentioned already in the story of Adam and Eve in the second book of Genesis, verses 11-12, speaking of the land of Havilah “where there is gold; and the gold of that land is good.”
Silver first appears in Genesis 13:2, telling of Abram‘s “riches of cattle, silver, and gold.”

Significance

For an example, financial matters are mentioned more often in the Bible than prayer, healing, and mercy. The topic of sin, however, is addressed more frequently than finances, with even the specific word “sin” and variations on it appearing nearly 600 times!
