"Ye cannot serve God and mammon" (Matt. 6:24)—"Mammon" is properly an Aramaic term which means "riches or wealth." Some authorities hold that it is derived from the root "aman" (as is our word "amen"), a root meaning "to be steadfast or firm, to put confidence in, or trust;" and on this view, "mammon" would mean that in which many people place their trust. The early translator, Wycliffe, gives the rendering "riches"; while Goodspeed prefers, "money."
"Take no thought" (Matt. 6:25, 31)—A literal rendering of the Greek would be: "Do not worry," since the noun which corresponds to the verb here used means literally "care, worry, or anxiety."
