The Love of Money: a direct quote from 1 Timothy 6:10 KJV:
"For the love of money is the root of all evil:"

This famous verse from the King James Version is often misquoted as saying "Money is the root...", but the Apostle Paul is clearly talking about the love of money (greed).

Originally penned in Greek in the first century A.D, It has been better translated in English the ASV and NIV:
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil."
Don't be so greedy! Remember, the love of money if the root of evil

Second half of the Christian Bible, comprised of 4 accounts of the life of Jesus (Gospels), the historical account of the first apostles (Acts), various letters written by leaders of the early church (Epistles) and the Apocalypse of John (Revelation).

The New Testament was originally written in Greek in the first century A.D. The last book written, The Revelation of St. John was written in 90 A.D.

Today we have many references to the New Testament which are famous:
"root of all evil" (1 Tim 6:10)
"Go the extra mile" (Matthew 5:41)
"Apocalypse" ("Revelation" in Greek)
"Armageddon" (Revelation 16:16)
and countless more...
I read somewhere in the New Testament.

ASV
Authorized Standard Version: An update of the King James Version published in 1901.
This version earned the reputation of being the Rock of Biblical Honesty. Although the English used in the ASV is somewhat archaic, it isn't nearly as hard to understand as some passages of the King James Version of nearly 3 centuries earlier. This translation of the Holy Bible is in the public domain.
The passage about the root of all evil is better translated in the ASV or NIV than the KJV.
