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 “gain”.

Judges 5:19 The kings came and fought,
then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach
by the waters of Megiddo;
they took no gain of money.

Job 22:3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty,
that thou art righteous?
or is it gain to him,
that thou makest thy ways perfect?

Proverbs 1:19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain;
which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

Proverbs 3:14 For the merchandise of it is better than
the merchandise of silver,
and the gain thereof than fine gold.

Proverbs 15:27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house;
but he that hateth gifts shall live.

Proverbs 28:8 He that by usury and unjust gain
increaseth his substance,
he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

Isaiah 33:15 He that walketh righteously,
and speaketh uprightly;
he that despiseth the gain of oppressions,
that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes,
that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood,
and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

Isaiah 56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs
which can never have enough,
and they are shepherds that cannot understand:
they all look to their own way,
every one for his gain, from his quarter.

Ezekiel 22:13 Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand
at thy dishonest gain which thou hast made,
and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee.

Ezekiel 22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof
are like wolves ravening the prey,
to shed blood,
and to destroy souls,
to get dishonest gain.
