Ezekiel 18:8 - 9, Torah
"[For] he [who] has not given forth upon usury, neither has taken any increase, [who] has withdrawn his hand from iniquity, has executed true judgement between man and man, has walked in My statutes, and has kept My judgements, to deal truly; he [is] just, he will surely live," the Lord God says.
Ezekiel 22:12 - 15, Torah
"[But] they have taken gifts to shed blood in you; you have taken usury and increase, and you have greedily gained of your neighbors by extortion, and have forgotten Me," the Lord God says. "Behold, therefore I have struck My hand at your dishonest gain which you have made, and at your blood which has been in the midst of you. Can your heart endure, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I will deal with you? I the Lord have spoken [it], and will do [it]. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and disperse you in the countries, and will consume your filthiness out of you."
4:160 - 161, Qur'an
[And thus] for wrongdoing on the part of the Jews, We made unlawful for them [certain] good foods which had been lawful to them, and for their averting from the way of God many [people], and [for] their taking of usury while they had been forbidden from it, and their consuming of the people's wealth unjustly. And We have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.
2:278 - 280, Qur'an
[So] O you who have believed, fear God and give up what remains [due to you] of interest, if you should be believers. And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from God and His messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal - [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged. And if someone is in hardship, then [let there be] postponement until [a time of] ease. But if you give [from your right as] charity, then it is better for you, if you only knew.
Leviticus 25:35 - 37, Torah
And [thus] if your brother is waxed poor, and has fallen in decay with you; then you will relieve him, [indeed, though he is] a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with you. Take no usury from him, or increase, but fear your God; that your brother may live with you. You will not give him your money upon usury, nor lend him your victuals for increase.
Ezekiel 18:12 - 13, Torah
[For if someone] has oppressed the poor and needy, has spoiled by violence, has not restored the pledge, and has lifted up his eyes to the idols, has committed abomination, has given forth upon usury, and has taken increase, will he then live? He will not live, he has done all these abominations; he will surely die; his blood will be upon him.
Ezekiel 18:17, Torah
[But he who] has taken his hand off from the poor, [who] has not received usury or increase, has executed My judgements, has walked in My statutes; he will not die for the iniquity of his father, he will surely live.
3:130 - 131, Qur'an
[So] O you who have believed, do not consume usury, doubled and multiplied, but fear God that you may be successful. And fear the Fire, which has been prepared for the disbelievers.
[And thus] whatever you give for interest to increase within the wealth of people will not increase with God. But what you give in alms, desiring the Countenance of God - those are the multipliers -
[Whereby] the example of those who spend their wealth in the way of God is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And God multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And God is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
[For] indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned God a goodly loan - it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.
64:16 - 17, Qur'an
So fear God as much as you are able and listen and obey and spend [in the way of God]; it is better for your selves. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul - it is those who will be the successful. If you loan God a goodly loan, He will multiply it for you and forgive you. And God is Most Appreciative and Forbearing.
[Tobit 4:8 - 9], Torah
If you have abundance, give alms accordingly; if you have but a little, do not be afraid to give according to that little; for you lay up a good treasure for yourself against the Day of Necessity.
[But] when it is said to them, "Spend from that which God has provided for you," those who disbelieve say to those who believe, "Should we feed one whom, if God had willed, He would have fed? You are not but in clear error."
1 Timothy 6:17 - 19, Gospel
[So] charge those who are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy; that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
[And so] they ask you, what they should spend. Say, "Whatever you spend of good is [to be] for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good - indeed, God is Knowing of it."
[Thus] alms expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect and for bringing hearts together and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of God and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by God. And God is Knowing and Wise.
Deuteronomy 15:7, Torah
[And thus] if there is among you a poor man of one of your brethren within any of your gates in your land which the Lord your God gives you, you will not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your poor brother.
Deuteronomy 15:10 - 11, Torah
You will surely give him, and your heart will not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your works, and in all that you put your hand to. For the poor will never cease out of the land, therefore I command you, saying, "You will open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor, and to your needy in your land."
17:28 - 30, Qur'an
[But] if you [must] turn away from the needy awaiting mercy from your Lord which you expect, then speak to them a gentle word. And do not make your hand [as] chained to your neck or extend it completely and [thereby] become blamed and insolvent. Indeed, your Lord extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]. Indeed He is ever, concerning His servants, Aware and Seeing.
Matthew 6:2 - 4, Gospel
Therefore when you do alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say to you, 'They have their reward.' But when you do alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand does. That your alms may be in the hidden, and your [Creator], who sees in the hidden Himself, will reward you openly."
[So] O you who have believed, do not invalidate your charities with reminders or injury as does one who spends his wealth to be seen by the people and does not believe in God and the Last Day. His example is like that of a smooth stone upon which is dust and is hit by a downpour that leaves it bare. They are unable [to keep] anything of what they have earned. And God does not guide the disbelieving people.
[But] not upon you is [responsibility for] their guidance, but God guides whom He wills. And whatever good you [believers] spend is for yourselves, and you do not spend except seeking the Countenance of God. And whatever you spend of good - it will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.
92:18 - 21, Qur'an
[And thus he] who gives [from] his wealth to purify himself and not for anyone who has [done] a favor to be rewarded but only seeking the Countenance of his Lord, Most High, he is going to be satisfied.
104:1 - 4, Qur'an
[So] woe to every scorner and mocker who collects wealth and [continuously] counts it. He thinks that his wealth will make him immortal. No! He will surely be thrown into the Crusher.
James 5:1 - 3, Gospel
[So] go now, [you] rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that will come upon [you]. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and their rust will be a witness against you, and will eat your flesh as it were fire. You have heaped treasure together for the Last Days -
Job 36:18 - 19, Torah
Because [there is] wrath, [beware] unless He takes away with [His] stroke, then a great ransom cannot deliver you. Will He esteem your riches? [No], not gold, nor all the forces of strength.
[So] indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers - never would the [whole] capacity of the earth in gold be accepted from one of them if he would [seek to] ransom himself with it. For those there will be a painful punishment, and they will have no helpers.
Psalms 49:6 - 7, Torah
[And thus] those who trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; none [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him.
[For] it is not your wealth or your children that bring you nearer to Us in position, but it is [by being] one who has believed and done righteousness. For them there will be the double reward for what they did, and they will be in the upper chambers [of Paradise], safe [and secure].
