The greed of Eli's sons for the best part of the sacrifices disqualified them from the priesthood (1 Samuel 2: 29). Hosea condemned priests who were greedy for the people's iniquity (1 Samuel 4: 8 NRSV), that is, greedy for the sin offerings. Jesus warned against all types of greed (Luke 12: 15; KJV covetousness).
