always looking for the treasure, the riches
There is much to do and
said about treasures and riches in stories,
video games, hunts, websites, etc…
scripture say about treasure, riches?
I see below we should be a type of treasure
Exod.19  Now
therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is
 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom
of priests, and an holy nation. These are the
words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Peter has similar words:
1Pet.2  But ye are a chosen generation, a
royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew
forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous
light:  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the
people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
1Pet.5  Likewise, ye younger, submit
yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be
clothed with humility: for God resisteth
proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
God has many treasures
Deut.28  Yehovah shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season,
and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou
lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
Deut.32 Is not this laid up in store with
me, and sealed up among my treasures?
Job.38  Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or
hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, 
Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle
Pss.17  Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast
him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their
portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest
with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their
substance to their babes.
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when
I awake, with
Pss.135 For Yehovah
hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his
Prov.2  My son, if thou wilt receive my
words, and hide my commandments with thee;
So that thou incline thine ear unto
wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest
up thy voice for understanding;
If thou seekest
her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
thou understand the fear of Yehovah, and find
the knowledge of God.
Prov.8  I love them that love me; and those
that seek me early shall find me.
Riches and honour
are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice
silver.  I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the
paths of judgment: That I may cause
those that love me to inherit substance; and I will
Prov.10  Treasures of wickedness profit nothing:
but righteousness delivereth from death.
Prov.15  In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
 Better is little with the fear of Yehovah
than great treasure and trouble therewith.
Prov.21  The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek
 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the
wise; but a foolish man spendeth
Isa.33  And
wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of
salvation: the fear of Yehovah
Isa.45  Thus saith
to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden,
to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of
kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be
I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in
pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and
hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest
know that I, Yehovah, which call thee by thy name,
am the God of Israel.
Jer.10  When
His voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth
to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings
with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.
Jer.48  For
because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt
also be taken
thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who
shall come unto me?
sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled
people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
Jer.51  O thou that dwellest
upon many waters, abundant
treasures, thine end is come,
and the measure of thy covetousness.
The precious words of Messiah Yeshua
Matt.6 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break
through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine
eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
 But if thine eye be evil,
thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in
thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve
God and mammon.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or
what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the
life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather
into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye
not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they
grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like
one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day
is, and to
morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more
clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal
shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:)
for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have
need of all these things.
 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and
all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for
the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for
out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth
forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil
things.  But I say unto you, That every idle word
that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
 For by thy words thou shalt be justified,
and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Matt.13  Again, the
kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man
hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth
all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
 Then said he unto them, Therefore
every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man
that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
young man saith
unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?  Yeshua said unto
thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and
come and follow me.  But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
Luke.6  A
good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that
which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that
which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Luke.12  And
he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth
not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
 And he spake a parable unto
them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room
where to bestow my fruits?
And he said, This
will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I
bestow all my fruits and my goods.
And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid
up for many years; take thine ease, eat,
drink, and be merry.
But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of
thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 
So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore
I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for
the body, what ye shall put on.
The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which
neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth
them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say
unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to
morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe
you, O ye of little faith?
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall
drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
 For all these things do the nations of the world seek
after: and your Father knoweth that ye have
need of these things.
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto
 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to
give you the kingdom.
Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where
no thief approacheth,
neither moth corrupteth.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Matt.13 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth
the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh
Mark.4  And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the
word, and it becometh unfruitful.
Luke.8  And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go
forth, and are choked with cares and riches and
pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
Matt.19 Then said Yeshua
unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man
shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say
unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for
a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Mark.10  And Yeshua
looked round about, and saith unto his
disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches
enter into the kingdom of God!
And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Yeshua
again, and saith
unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from
their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the
Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in
that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in
the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
Luke.14  Then said he also to him that bade
him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not
thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest
they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made
thee.  But when thou makest a feast, call
the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
And thou shalt
be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt
be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
Jas.1  Let the brother of low degree
rejoice in that he is exalted:  But the rich, in
that he is made low: because as the flower of
the grass he shall pass away.
For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth
the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the
grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways
Jas.2 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath
not God chosen the poor of this world rich in
faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him
Jas.5  Go to now, ye rich men, weep and
howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness
against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye
have heaped treasure together for the last days. 
Behold, the hire of the labourers who have
reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth:
and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of Yehovah
Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your
hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of Yehovah.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the
precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive
the early and latter rain.
Be ye also patient; stablish your
hearts: for the coming of Yehovah draweth
 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be
condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the
Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of Yehovah,
for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job,
and have seen the end of Yehovah; that Yehovah
is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
Jas.4… God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto
We all need to remember,
we are but grass, dust – life is short
Gen.18  And Abraham answered and said,
Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto Yehovah,
which am but dust and ashes…
Pss.103  For
our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
 As for man,
his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
 For the wind passeth
over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
 But the mercy of Yehovah
is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his
righteousness unto children's children;
 To such as keep his
covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
Isa.40  The
voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the
flower of the field: 
The grass withereth, the

upon it: surely the people is grass.
The grass withereth, the

1Pet.1  For
all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
But the word of Yehovah endureth
for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is
preached unto you.
Pss.103  As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. 
For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and
the place thereof shall know it no more.
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words
of our Lord Yeshua Messiah, and to the doctrine
which is according to godliness;
He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes
of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing
that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
godliness with contentment is great gain.
 For we brought nothing into this world, and it
is certain we can carry nothing out.
 And having food and raiment let us be therewith
 But they that will be rich fall
into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which
drown men in destruction and perdition.
 For the love of money is the root
of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the
faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow
after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art
also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Job.27  The rich man shall lie down,
but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes,
and he is not.
Pss.37  A
little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
Pss.39  Behold, thou hast made my days as an
handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his
best state is altogether vanity. Selah.  Surely every man
in a vain shew:
surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth
not who shall gather them.  And
now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
Pss.49  Hear this, all ye people; give ear,
all ye inhabitants of the world:  Both low and
high, rich and poor, together.
 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my
heart shall be of understanding.
I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels

 They that trust in their wealth,
and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when

God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall
take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of
the land of the living. Selah.
The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened
himself in his wickedness.
 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I
trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
I will praise thee for ever, because
thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy
Pss.62  Surely
men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in
the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity. 
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
Pss.73  Truly
God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the
prosperity of the wicked.
 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength
They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
Therefore pride compasseth them

They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh
through the earth.

Pss.104  Yehovah
how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou
made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
Pss.112  Praise ye Yehovah.
Blessed is the man that feareth Yehovah,
that delighteth greatly
in his commandments.
His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be

Ecc.5 The sleep of a labouring man is
sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.

 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and

this is the gift of God.  For he shall not much remember the

Ecc.9 I returned, and saw under the sun,
that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet
bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour
to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth
to them all.
Jer.9  Thus

me, that I am Yehovah which exercise lovingkindness,
judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith
Phil.4…my God shall supply all your need
according to His riches in glory by Messiah Yeshua.

and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch

Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus,
that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool
my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst
thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and

send him to my father's house:
For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come
into this place of torment.

have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
And he said, Nay,
father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
And he said unto him, If they hear not
