In case anyone cares, 1 Timothy 6:10.  Here's a link that gives you the full
verse with a couple leading into it.


Note that the NRSV continues the sentence explicitly, "...of all kinds of
evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the
faith and pierced themselves with many pains."

I'd say that lust for money would be a fair paraphrase.  And to bring it all
back on topic, isn't that what _Orca_ is all (well not all, but partly)
