We meet with this word two or three times in the gospel, as used by our Lord Jesus Christ in a figurative manner. Jesus contrasts mammon to God. "Ye cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 6:24) "Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness." (Luke 16:9) It is a Syriac word, and means, perhaps, generally speaking, not gain or riches only, but whatever is in opposition to the Lord. Every corruption of our nature may be called the mammon of unrighteousness, and as such is set forth by it as hostile to a state of grace.
