I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of Covet(ous)”. 

Exo 18:21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men,
such as fear God, men of truth,
hating covetousness;
and place  such over them,
to be rulers of thousands,
and rulers of hundreds,
rulers of fifties,
and rulers of tens:

18:22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be,
that every great matter they shall bring unto thee,
but every small matter they shall judge:
so shall it be easier for thyself,
and they shall bear  the burden with thee.

Psa 10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire,
and blesseth the covetous,
whom the LORD abhorreth.

Psa 119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies,
and not to covetousness.

Pro 28:16 The prince that wanteth understanding  is also a great oppressor:
but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong  his days.

7:15 All  things have I seen in the days of my vanity:
there is a just  man that perisheth in his righteousness,
and there is a wicked  man that prolongeth  his life in his wickedness.

Isa 57:17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth,
and smote him: I hid me,
and was wroth,
and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.

Jer 6:13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them
every one  is given to covetousness;
and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

Jer 8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others,
and their fields to them that shall inherit  them:
for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness,
from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

Jer 22:16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy;
then  it was well  with him:
was not this to know me? saith the LORD.

Jer 22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart  are not but for thy covetousness,
and for to shed innocent blood,
and for oppression,
and for violence, to do  it.

Jer 51:13 O thou that dwellest upon many waters,
abundant in treasures,
thine end is come,
and the measure of thy covetousness.

Eze 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh,
and they sit before thee  as my people,
and they hear thy words,
but they will not do them:
for with their mouth they shew much love,
but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

Hab 2:9 Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house,
that he may set his nest on high,
that he may be delivered from the power of evil!

Mar 7:20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man,
that defileth the man.
Mar 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men,
proceed evil thoughts,

Mar 7:22 Thefts,
an evil eye,

Mar 7:23 All these evil things come from within,
and defile the man.

Luk 12:15 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.

Luk 16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous,
heard all these things:
and they derided him.

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness,
full of envy,

1:30 Backbiters,
haters of God,
inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,
1:31 Without understanding,
without natural affection,
1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God,
that they which commit such things are worthy of death,
not only do the same,
but have pleasure in them that do them.

1Co 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world,
or with the covetous,
or extortioners,
or with idolaters;
for then must ye needs go out of the world.

1Co 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company,
if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator,
or covetous,
or an idolater,
or a railer,
or a drunkard,
or an extortioner;
with such an one no not to eat.

Be not deceived:
neither fornicators,
nor idolaters,

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

1Co 6:10 Nor thieves,
nor covetous,
nor drunkards,
nor revilers,
nor extortioners,
shall inherit the kingdom of God.

2Co 9:5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren,
that they would go before unto you,
and make up beforehand your bounty,
whereof ye had notice before,
that the same might be ready,
as  a matter of bounty,
and not as  of covetousness.

Eph 5:3 But fornication,
and all uncleanness,
or covetousness,
let it not be once named among you,
as becometh saints;

5:4 Neither filthiness,
nor foolish talking,
nor jesting,
which are not convenient:
but rather giving of thanks.

Eph 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger,
nor unclean person,
nor covetous man,
who is an idolater,
hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Col 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;
inordinate affection,
evil concupiscence,
and covetousness, which is idolatry:

1Th 2:5 For neither at any time used we flattering words,
as ye know,
nor a cloke of covetousness;
God  is witness:

2:6 Nor of men sought we glory,
neither of you,
nor  yet of others,
when we might have been burdensome,
as the apostles of Christ.

1Ti 3:3 Not given to wine,
no striker,
not greedy of filthy lucre;
but patient,
not a brawler,
not covetous;

3:4 One that ruleth well his own house,
having his children in subjection with all gravity;
3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house,
how shall he take care of the church of God?)
3:6 Not a novice,
lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves,
disobedient to parents,

3:3 Without natural affection,
false accusers,
despisers of those that are good,
3:4 Traitors,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
3:5 Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.

Heb 13:5  Let your conversation  be without covetousness;
and be content with such things as ye have:
for he hath said, I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.

2Pe 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words
make merchandise of you:
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not,
and their damnation slumbereth not.

2Pe 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery,
and that cannot cease from sin;
beguiling unstable souls:
an heart they have exercised with covetous practices;
cursed children:

2:15 Which have forsaken the right way,
and are gone astray,
following the way of Balaam  the son of Bosor,
who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity:
the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice
forbad the madness of the prophet.
