.. serve God and profit .. serve God and Mammon.. This verse in the OT seems to be exactly the same phrase at the NT wording phrase....

Written in Hebrew
"'amar" "shav'" "`abad" "'elohiym" "f" "betsa`"
"'It is said" "it is vanity'" "to serve" "'elohiym" "and Mammon`"

This exactly the same Greek translation of similar wordings
"ou" "dunamai'" "douleuo" "'theos" "kai""mammonas"
"'You" "cannot'" "serve" "'elohiym" "and Mammon`"

WOW ! This makes me very confident I have found the right word for "mammon"

Notice the Greek is an exact translation of the Hebrew
