Deuteronomy 6:5

וְאָהַבְתָּ אֵת ה’ אֱלֹקיךָ בְּכָל לְבָבְךָ וּבְכָל נַפְשְׁךָ וּבְכָל מְאֹדֶךָ

You shall love Hashem your G-d with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.

The Talmud in Brachos (54a) tells us that b’chol m’odecha (normally translated as “with all your might”) actually refers to all of one’s wealth. Accordingly, Onkelos renders this verse “…with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your possessions.”
