Covetousness

Covetousness - a strong desire after the possession of worldly things. It assumes
     sometimes the more aggravated form of greed, which is the mark of cold-hearted

Colossians
 003:005 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness,
 inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 

 Ephesians
 005:005 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. 

 Exodus
 020:017 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's

 thy neighbour's. 

 Psalms
 119:036 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. 

 1 Corinthians
 012:031 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

 014:039 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

 1 Timothy

 hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 

 006:010 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. 

 Matthew
 006:020 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth
 corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
