Isaiah, Money And America
Isaiah 1:22 reads, "Thy silver has become dross, thy wine mixed with water."
The word translated "silver" is the same word translated "money." "Dross" is worthless. If Isaiah were alive here in America could he say, "Your money has become worthless and your coffee cream has become a non-dairy product."

7:25. "thou shalt not desire the silver or gold..."
In each case the word translated money is word #3701 in the Hebrew dictionary of Strong's Concordance. The word translated money is the exact same word which is translated "silver." Also word #3701 Silver!
15 My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of
silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.
