lū´kẽr , lōō´kẽr ( בּצע , becā‛ ; κέρδος , kérdos ): Literally, "gain" ( 1 Samuel 8:3; Titus 1:7 ), hence, in the New Testament always qualified by "filthy" (1 Timothy 3:8 , "not greedy of filthy lucre" (αἰσχροκερδής , aischrokerdḗs ); so Titus 1:7 ). The adverb is found in 1 Peter 5:2 (see also Titus 1:11 ). In 1 Timothy 3:3 , the Revised Version (British and American) changes the King James Version to "no lover of money" (ἀφιλάργυρος , aphilárguros ).
